“Fashion is quick. One year is like a dog year,” the young and talented supermodel Karlie Kloss explained to Vogue UK in their May 2012 issue. In the ever-changing fashion world, one thing is for certain: denim is never going out of style. Whether it’s denim jeans or a chambray shirt, denim is everywhere – the definition of a wardrobe staple. There is a difference between a fad and fashion, fads fades and fashion doesn’t. The only thing fading about denim is the faded hues.
While it’s common to see denim on any campus, the denim worn is usually in the form of jeans. This Fashionista was a breathe of fresh air in a double-denim look fit for a beachside barbeque or music festival. Her chambray button-up and denim jeans contrasted unbelievably well together and she looked super comfortable.
Denim on denim has been a trend for a while now, after circulating back to the scene in spring 2010 shows. Arguably the most famous of double-denim looks was Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears’ appearance at the VMAs, where they tried to make their looks red carpet worthy. We want to stray far from that, Fashionistas.
When attempting a denim-on-denim look you first have to get the shading correct. Ideally, the two garments will be of different colors and textures, as seen here, making it easier to distinguish from the two. Also, branch out and consider incorporating denim accessories into your wardrobe, like a versatile denim tote or denim flats.
