Denim on denim is one of my favorite "go to" looks in my outfit arsenal. For some, it can be a struggle to grapple this look. You're either on-board or saying "hell no". Well my peeps, if you feel as if you're teetering, here's some of my tips to help you take the dive and it's painless. It's actually quite G-rated and packs a whole dose of style easily.
Wearing all denim really boils down to 2 things for me: denim wash and texture. Let's explore the denim wash situation. I like to pair denims that differ in wash. In the outfit I'm wearing, the top is a lighter wash than the shorts and it makes the look more intentional. In others words, it doesn't look like I'm trying to match my denim. You know how I feel about things being too matchy matchy ;) So wear your distressed light wash denim jeans, shorts or skirt with a dark denim shirt or lightweight chambray shirt with dark wash denim bottoms.
To make wearing this look easy, I stick to styles that are simple. Each piece has very little detail or embellishment which allows for a very chic look. This darling off the shoulder top was a great find and buy at Francesca's at The Village at Meridian. So go snag one now if you love!! I can dress it up or down and it's a simple style which means, I'll love it next year. The light fabric brings me to my other tip. Vary the texture. It provides more interest and gives your look some dimension. If I'm wearing a denim that has some weight to it, I'll pair it with a light fabric chambray top to balance the look.
I know guys, it's way easier than you think. The Canadian tuxedo has been reclaimed and it's better than ever!! Here's a few images that feature some of my favorite denim on denim looks that you can use or create your own. Let me know how you rock your all denim wear and show me!!!
