TREND: A Double Dose of Denim

While students on various campuses are commonly seen sporting the classic “jeans and T” look, this Fashionista shows us a whole new take on how to wear denim. Denim is especially plentiful on college campuses, and this Fashionista makes her use of denim even more plentiful than the average student. By incorporating a double dose of denim into her look, this Fashionista creates a look that’s both unique and eye-catching. She pairs her double denim look with a pair of classic moccasins, her navy blue Betsey Johnson sunglasses, and a floral print backpack. Her look is far more refreshing than the everyday “jeans and T” look often worn by her college counterparts, and the simplicity of her look allows her to incorporate multiple prints amongst her ensemble – perfect for spring. This Fashionista’s floral print backpack adds to the overall look of her outfit. Also, the ability to add fun prints like floral print makes the “denim on denim” trend especially perfect for spring. While the idea of wearing double denim can be a frightening thought for many, the key to making this look work is incorporating a variety of accessories and textures to your look. You can also customize your denim, for example–by using patchwork—to create a look with a more rustic feel. This particular Fashionista customizes her denim by pairing two different tones of denim together, breaking up the denim’s uniformity. Not a fan of accessorizing? Simply dress your lips in classic red lipstick to add some contrast to your overall look.

Hint: Pairing the denim on denim look with something more feminine allows you to minimize the masculine aspect of your look, while still successfully executing a look that is fashion forward and stylish, not frumpy. Also, avoiding western-wear can prevent this trend from looking “costumey”.
