Fashion trends always come around in cycles. Denim on denim is one trend that has definitely been popping back up over the years. Denim has such a casual feel to it that makes it perfect for class wear, so what more could you want than a denim on denim outfit? I love this style because it’s just so fun and risky. It’s truly the definition of casual-chic.

This Fashionista executed the double denim style flawlessly. Utilizing different shades of denim is key to this look. Her light wash chambray shirt contrasts nicely with her dark wash, high-waisted denim skinnies. For a bright pop of color, she wore a comfy pair of red TOMS shoes. Her slouchy, beige cardigan gives warmth to her look (stylistically and quite literally). She then played with some more varieties of shades by toting around a brown, earth-toned backpack.

This kind of style is great for your average day at school. Working with combinations of different shades of colors can give an outfit a subtle, multi-dimensional feel, especially when you’re using the same material twice. Thus, the materials you choose to wear in your outfit help set the tone of whether you’re going for formal or casual. In this case, casual is the go-to for class; thus, denim on denim is a perfect style tool to use when deciding what to wear for class.

One Simple Change: This winter is sure going to be a chilly one. If you live in a place where the temperature has already taken a nosedive, simply chuck on a thick overcoat and swap your light TOMS shoes for some statement booties!
