Wearing: Regular denim buttoned down shirt, Ed Hardy shorts, and River Island lace-up brogues.
For Denim on Denim, famously known as ‘Canadian tuxedo’, the secret is balance! Yes, this trend is so wrong, that its right and it is not going anywhere anytime soon.
On a casual day, I am running errands and finishing my shopping list in my super chic and comfy denim shorts, denim shirt and lace-up brogues (super love River Island). It instantly gives a street style vibe, effortlessly put together. Mixing of the washes is giving it a seamless flair and making it an ideal outfit to wear while out on the town. The noble thing about these pieces is that they are wardrobe staples and are sure to get a ton of wear on a daily basis, whether worn together or separately.
So styling the “D” Duo is not at all tricky, rather can be naturally put together. You can also see the A-listers follow the trend and get more inspiration on the same.
Bonus Tips – Dos & Don’ts:
Do: Use the denim advantage to highlight your body parts. As a rule, the lighter shades of denim draw more attention to the body parts they cover, while the darker contributes by giving a slimming effect. For many of us girls, it means, darker denim bottoms.
Don’t: No to denim accessories. No denim shoes, hats, handbags or any other accessory. Keep it confined.
Do: Keep it simple! Always works! With two denim pieces put together, less is more. So break it up with simple colours and neutral accessories to keep it clean. Nude / White / Browns.
Don’t: Match it all (never). Keep in mind not to wear the same weight and wash, especially if you’re a beginner.
Do: Play around with colours and the weight and wash of the denim. For beginners, mixing the right proportions is a must. Blues and whites and blacks and the shades can all be mixed and matched. Personal fav – chambray shirt with dark skinnies (Oh, So Fresh!).
Don’t: Do NOT mix up too many main elements / trends in the same look. Stay away from too much boho; you don’t want to look like a caricature. Minimal is the way to go.
Do: Distress. Don’t be afraid to rip your denims away (shorts or jeans). There is something about distressed denim look. The style and the attitude make it very chic and modish, giving you the refined look.
Don’t: Never go back in the days to take inspiration on this look, which undoubtedly went so-so-wrong-wrong. Example: Justin Timberlake and Britney spears (do check them out), you can never go this wrong then!
Do: Dress to tell. You can always up your look by adding statement slinky heels, sophisticated blazer or an outstanding lip colour.
So we are definitely breaking the rules by this combination. But, ey, don’t your eyes love it? Have you tried the denim on denim yourself? If yes, as always, we would love to see it!
