how to wear denim on denim

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

Who would have thunk it...but denim on denim is HOT! We have told you this is a Spring 2010 trend and we weren't lying:  Its everywhere. Here's the thing, how the heck do you pull this look off without looking like you are herding cattle? We have done our research and experimented a little ourselves and here is what we have determined:

-Do wear a darker denim with a chambray denim. Try a darker denim jacket over a chambray denim dress.

-DON'T get too matchy matchy (as seen above).  Try mixing the textures like a stiff or even distressed jeans with a worn and soft denim shirt.

-DO break up all the denim with something NOT denim. Throw on a belt that breaks up the denim and defines the waist or layer with a tank and dress it up with a fun necklace and a bunch of bracelets.

-DON'T accessorize with denim pieces on top of wearing the D on D look.  Denim overload.

Here are some of our favorite denim finds...

Old Navy Roll Up Chambray Camper Shirt $26.50

Ultra Skinny Denim Leggings $69.50 at Gap.

Shrunken Denim Vest $49.50 at Gap.

Cooperative Chambray Lace Up Dress $58.00 at Urban Outfitters.
