Denim on denim, or matching individual denim items in one ensemble is a style trend which continues to come back, year after year. We enjoy it as a stylish choice for appearing pulled together, for laid back weekends and casual events. You might also style double denim to appear chic for more dressed up events — a trend that started on the street style blogs and is now migrated into several female daily wardrobes.
Styling top to bottom denim does require practice, though — there are various tricks that, if ignored, can make you appear outdated, or like you just wandered in from the forest. To help you not experience that fashion fate, here are our go-to style rules on how to rock denim on denim now to create a modern, street style look.
Desiring to look confident and on point in double denim? For an easy, breezy appearance that telegraphs trendy fashion, try sporting slouchy jeans pieces together. Play with various fits and fabric washes to pull together an ensemble that fits like it suits your individual fashion vibe.
Are you not sure what goes with what? When in doubt, choose a breezier denim top to go with a solid wash jean or jean skirt. Or perhaps try wearing matching denim pieces, for a confident denim tuxedo look, that is now in style in a huge way.
A great pair of shades, a trendy leather purse, and black ankle boots, are the perfect accessories for keeping this vide in the now.
Denim on denim can look great when you mix up your fabric choices. For a more on point, street style trendy vibe, wear matching denim separates in vastly different denim washes, such as a combination of a vintage, light blue jacket and inky black skinny jeans.
For the most body flattering ensemble when you wear denim on denim, keep in mind that darker washes create a slimming effect, while brighter hues of denim focus attention to the body areas they cover. So if you're curvy below the waist, the most flattering outfit for you will be one that combines lighter denim on top, and a dark wash jean on the bottom.
For a cute, frilly appearance that is great for plenty of weekend occasions, from football games to music and parties, layer a jeans jacket over your favorite jean skirt.
You may wear a jean bomber jacket with a denim mini-skirt. Or try wearing a classic jean jacket with a distressed skirt for a rocker vibe, with a denim pencil skirt for a more classic look, or choose a long, floor-length denim skirt for a bohemian chic attitude.
Whatever length of dress you select, keep your top basic with a casual ensemble, in case you do unbutton your jacket at some point. Try a unstructured, solid colored t-shirt or tank top. Finish your look with a pair of comfy flats and one or two basic accessories, such as a cute cap, bangle bracelet or stud earrings.
Going out with friends? You will spin heads and appear downtown cool while you match relaxed boyfriend denim with a seductive crop top. This confident ensemble is ideal for layering with a jean jacket, for coverage when you're riding the subway, or whenever the temperature drops in the evening. Add your favorite accessories, such as a great statement necklace, or fierce ankle boots, to make the look your own.
If you are about a streamlined skinny jeans silhouette, try wearing an outfit of slim-fitting jean separates, in dark blue or black denim washes. The most important thing to remember for this look is perfect fit, so be sure to choose denim that hug your curves snugly, for a confident appearance that's flattering to any body type.
Impress your co-workers with your fresh fashion style, whenever you wear a denim blazer and jeans to the office, rather than a pantsuit. A structured, longer jean blazer in a boyfriend fit, worn over slim ankle length jeans in a similar hue, will look chic and fashion-forward at the same time. Spiff it up for work with a few key accessories, that include a hot bag, high heeled shoes, and inspired jewelry.
A classic jean jacket is a fabulous layering piece, and comes in handy when you want to add color — or casualness — to a dark outfit. This street style rock star layers hers over black jean shorts and a dark tee, quickly dressing up a casual outfit for city events and shopping.
