How To Wear Denim On Denim

How To Wear Denim On Denim - At LUV Fashion we found out many years ago not to believe in fashion rules, hard and simple. The perfect example is the Canadian Tuxedo. Once seen as a huge fashion faux pas, thanks to Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake at the 2001 American Music Awards, denim on denim is one of the most worn street styles out there. Denim on denim is a tricky beast. When done right, it looks amazing—but one little mistake... fashion disaster...

But don't fear, celebrities like Kendall Jenner and Olivia Palermo have been seen rocking the look in new, exciting and refreshing ways. Guess what... So can you. 

1: Play with basic colors

Before diving into the deeper shades of double blue, start out by simply pairing different shades of denim together. For an example, white jeans and a blue denim jacket, or black jeans and a chambray shirt. It’s almost impossible to go wrong this way.

2: Accents

Try accents

An embellished, embroidered or distressed denim jacket adds an element of texture to your standard denim on denim outfit. Pair with an equally bedazzled pair of jeans to really create a buzz.

3: No Denim Accessories Please

Keep the jeans confined to your clothing and just say no to denim shoes, a denim hat, a denim, handbag, or any other accessory.

4: Match The Tones

Miranda Kerr appears on the streets in blue chambray shirt tucked in high-rise ankle length slim jeans completed with leopard print sandals.

5: Lets Go Light

A light blue denim jacket looks terrific matched with a light grey pullover, your fav white denim skinnies that tuck neatly into a pair of beige ankle-boots

6: Triple denim

I love this casual triple denim look. Both jacket and denim top are of matching tones but then contrasted by dark blue ripped skinny jeans. The pink statement handbag is a nice touch

Another triple denim outfit to try. This denim pantsuit is ideal for Fridays work hours. We see dark blue denim jacket, light blue chambray shirt, blue skinnies and nude pointed-toe pumps.

7: The Shading Rule

Try to avoid the "over denim" look you can get when doubling up on pieces that are the same exact wash! A rule-of-thumb is darker washes create a more slimming look while lighter washes usually draw more attention. So, with this in mind, try wearing darker denim jeans with a lighter wash on top.

This combination looks amazing on Gigi Hadid. The outfit is nicely proportioned slim tapered pants balanced by a relaxed button-down top. Added to this is the contrast of no-fuss white sneakers and glamorously oversize sunglasses.

8: Add texture

Add in a variety of textures with distressed denim. Distressed denim in itself looks amazing with any outfit, so it’s no surprise that it only enhances a denim on denim outfit! 

9: A Summer Look

We love Dakota Fanning's double denim skirt and croptop combo. Make like Dakota for a low-key yet ultra stylish day time look.

10: Frayed But Not Worn

Frayed edges and a refreshing cornflower blue accent and a white high-cut croptop sets this outfit apart. Selena Gomez wore a Marques Almeida denim coat with Marques Almeida jeans and styled with Dior So Real sunglasses and Jimmy Choo Minny leather sandals.

11: Create A Style

Experiment with contrasting silhouettes... An oversized jacket and slim cropped pants can make a very memorable outfit when matched just right.  Bella Hadid is wearing Quay It’s a Sin sunglasses , FRAME Le High Straight in Thrasher jeans, B-Low the Belt leather Barcelona belt, Zara ripped denim coat, and Rag & Bone boots.
