The Denim On Denim Look

Every time I think of wearing denim on denim I can’t help but remember Britney & Justin’s head to toe denim get up at the AMAs… I know it’s a scary thought, but denim on denim can actually be rocked without looking absolutely ridiculous.

There are a few key tricks to keep in mind if you want to try this style. First and foremost, please don’t just wear denim. Even Britney & Justin couldn’t rock it on its own. You have to break this fabric with something else. For sophistication, think silk and lace. For every day cool, think cotton and linen. For an edgy rock’n’roll vibe, leather is your way to go. No matter what you choose, make sure to introduce a different fabric to your outfit.

A great way to try this trend is by styling two different colored denim pieces. That way, you will lose the denim overload effect. For example, you can pair regular blue jeans with a white denim blazer. Or a white pair of jeans with pink denim blazer… Just mix and match. When you wear denim in a colorful shade, different than the traditional blue, it looses its denim effect. A white blazer looks way less denim-like than a blue blazer. Same goes for black, pink… etc.

If you want to wear blue on blue denim, then have a distraction detail in just one of the pieces. It can be eye-catching buttons, a distressed wash or even embroidery. But only on one of them. When you have a striking detail on one piece, it makes the outfit look less matchy matchy and more mix and match style. As if the outfit wasn’t planned to be put together, but rather was effortlessly thrown on. That means less Britney & Justin vibes and more of the cool model off duty vibes.

Denim on denim sounds scary but is actually rather fun and chilled. Would you dare to do it?

XoXo,

Tamara

    I remember reading back a couple years ago when you shouldn’t do this. And that’s why you can’t believe everything you read, huh? Because this looks fabulous Tamara!!

    What a perfect denim on denim pairing, girlie! I love the embroidered details and I couldn’t agree more with your tips. Adding in other fabrics will for sure make it a lot more aesthetically pleasing and doable. Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a great week ahead!

    On my I know exactly what you are talking about, not a good look for them or a good moment on Fashion Police haha. But denim on denim can look really cool, and how you styled here is perfection.

    I would absolutely do it. I think I did, once. But it was a while back. Might be time for an encore 🙂 the embroidery on your jeans is quite gorgeous, and echoes the print of your espadrilles beautifully.

      You should definitely do an encore while it’s still hot! Thank you Sheela.

    You’ve got a nice embroidered jeans and it looks good with a frayed denim jacket. You styled this trend so well!
