How to Wear Denim on Denim

Can you wear denim on denim? It’s a pretty ridiculous question-of course you can!

Denim on denim, also known as double denim, is a fashion trend that has been around for decades. If you watched the 2001 American Music Awards red carpet, you definitely heard about Britney Spear’s and Justin Timberlake’s outfit of the year. Their matching denim on denim was, and still is, widely talked about. Denim on denim can look amazing when done right.

Here are some tips on how to wear denim on denim:

Wear Contrasting Washes

Wearing the same wash of denim from head to toe can make the outfit look bland. Best way is mixing different washes together, which will help you break up the double denim and add some flare. As always, the queen of fashion, the icon, the one and only Rihanna, has done it right. Totally owning this look, choosing to pair her light denim shirt with darker washed denim skinny jeans.

Play with Accessories

A scarf is an unexpected, yet fashion forward, extra. A bag? Definitely happening. It might take the attention away from the one colour denim and spice up the outfit. But don’t wear denim accessories for example denim shoes, denim hat or handbag.

Keep it simple

Always keep it simple. Simplicity is important. For a clean, chic look don’t over do it. Don’t wear to much of necklaces or bracelets. A pair of coloured shoes would be great, exactly like the famous stunning model Gigi Hadid. She totally owned this!

Add Timeless Separates

Break up your double denim with a white T-shirt or blue oxford – they are classics for a reason.

To avoid making the mistakes of our past, it’s a good idea to follow a few tips to make sure that you’re looking good in this classic style. Don’t feel like you have to stick by those rules – creating an interesting outfit is not about following rules, is actually about breaking rules, is about feeling confident in what you’re wearing. So, at the end of the day, always wear the things that make you feel more comfortable, and more beautiful. Because that’s what fashion is for!
