Double Denim







In my mind, the nineties are synonymous with excessive denim-wearing. Since "Friends," "Ellen" (yes, she did have a show in the nineties), and "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" are a few of my all-time favorite TV shows, I'm constantly observing their outfits and picking out what I would actually wear. While some refuse to break any of (in their mind) "fashion rules," I prefer to break a few of the old traditions: denim on denim, white after Labor Day, and mixing metals.

Today I put together three denim-on-denim looks to showcase the greatness that two pieces of denim in one outfit can add to an overall look.

Look 1: I wanted a large contrast between my two denim pieces, so I opted for a light wash denim button-up and medium wash boyfriend jeans. I kept the rest of the look moderately neutral with a linen tee, leather belt, and black boots.

Look 2: The denim jacket and jeans definitely blend closer together in this look, but there's still an obvious change in texture and wash. In my mind, a denim jacket pulls any look together perfectly, regardless of what you're wearing on the bottom. As for my shirt, I kept everything low-key with an army green tee. To continue with the darker shades, I paired some leather oxfords with the look.

Look 3: In addition to throwing a jacket on, I also love to tie a button up around my waist for added dimension - everything flows so easily! This look is almost ombre starting with the white and grey pullover and ending with the black boots.

I hope this gave you some inspiration on how to rock a double denim look!
