Denim on Denim: How to Nail the Double Denim Trend

Denim lovers or not, I hope you’re doing well. Despite the denim explosion (nightmare) Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake have given us back in 2001, our love for denim has never faded. In fact, we love it so much that we’re wearing it from top to bottom in the past few years. Katy Perry and Riff Raff have recently resurrected Britney and Justin’s denim all the way look at the MTV VMA’s, and to be honest, they have definitely worn this matchy-matchy his and hers denim the coolest way. I think because they’ve mixed up the denim shades a bit more and the additional bling, stud and spike details were just right.

I went to a photography workshop last Sunday in Sheffield, and have decided to go for this double denim trend..

 I’m wearing a vintage acid wash tie-dye dungarees, I bought from a friend’s Facebook shop a couple of years ago. I added extra detail by putting this printed tee with a woman holding a camera. I thought it fitted well with the occasion… and was perfectly placed that it almost looks like it’s peeking from my dungarees to take a shot. This top was from Miss Selfridge petite collection from last year. Denim doesn’t only mean jeans,  so I opted for Chambray (denim-coloured cloth) shirt to complete this double denim look.

I went for an electric blue Primark mid-heeled shoes and a light pink H&M sunnies for a pop of colours. A darker colour sling bag completed my OOTD.

The first rule of the double-denim club, is to wear different washes of denim together. Go for contrast, wear a light blue denim shirt with a darker-coloured jeans (or denim shorts) or vice-versa. Basically, never wear same coloured denim ensemble, it’s just don’t look right and definitely not chic!

Another stylish take of wearing this trend is trying a double denim outfit in a lady-like shape, by tucking your denim shirt into a well-fitted pencil skirt. For colder weather, break-up denim ensemble by layering a dark denim jacket over your t-shirt or tee, and finished off the look with a lighter-coloured jeans. Or flip this look around by opting for a light-coloured denim jacket over a darker shade of jeans. Add a pop of colour through your accessories.
