Remember the 2001 American Music Awards? Bet you don’t. Remember the Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears, head to toe Denim on Denim look from that year? Sure as hell you do! But it wasn’t as much how they wore it than what they wore. Rodeo anyone?
A lot has changed since. The Denim on Denim look that was once a faux pas now is followed across the style spectrum. With a lot of celebrities, fashion bloggers and street style enthusiasts styling differently, the double denim look got a shot in the arm.
How to own it!
The primary mistake of pairing denims, is picking the same weight and wash for both pieces. Knowing your body type is half the battle won. Remember that lighter shades tend to draw attention to the part of the body they cover whilst darker shades have the slimming effect.
Mixing is best. Going head to toe in the same wash is tricky. But it isn’t just about the wash, the weight also matters. Wearing a light weight chambray shirt on denims of the same/similar shade look good due to the varying weight of fabric. You can check out my post on the light on heavy denim look that I did earlier. And my attempt at teaming different shades of denim.
You can dress it down by combining distressed denims with sneakers/deck shoes or dress it up with deep blue denims and oxfords/brogues or boots.
