Hey my beautiful ladies! Even though it started out as simple men’s workwear, denim has become a modern-day closet piece for everyone. Jeans, denim jacket, denim shirt or denim skirt, there are so many different ways to wear denim. And although there are many ways of styling these denim pieces with other types of clothes, there is a hot fashion trend that you should follow this spring – the denim on denim trend.
The trend got a bad reputation in the ’90s when Jay Leno was caught wearing a matching jean shirt and pants that resembled a onesie. Since then the look has taken a drastic 180! Denim on denim has recently exploded on the street style scene and has been spotted everywhere.
Mixing denim is exciting because it has infinite possibilities. If you’d like to wear the denim on denim trend, but aren’t quite sure how to pull it off, here are tips on how to make it work in your wardrobe. The major denim on denim pitfall is picking denim that’s all the same weight and wash. Instead you should combine two different shades. The secret is balance. Lighter shades of denim are considered to draw attention to the body parts they cover, while darker washes create a slimming effect. An effective option is to wear a chambray shirt with a pair of dark denim jeans. Easy, simple, chic. You can do it the other way around with dark washes on top and lighter on the bottom, but I find that it looks better the first way as darker colors are more slimming on the bottom, creating a much nicer illusion to your proportions. To cover another basic, you want to make sure that your denim pieces fit you perfectly. Pairing together a really baggy pair of jeans and an ill fitting denim shirt is not a good look, neither is the combination of a baggy denim jacket and bad fitting jeans. The key here is making sure your jean are slim or skinny and your shirt, jacket or vest is fitted. You need to make sure the cuts are slim, especially on the legs.
Below we have chosen several denim on denim outfit combinations which can get you inspired of how to wear hot fashion trend. Check them out.
