Denim on denim or double denim is a cool, yet difficult style to pull off. By switching out your footwear and adding more or less layers it can be worn any season and if pulled off correctly, looks like you are very fashionable. Though really, all it takes is knowing the secrets behind it! Below are 3 ways to try the double denim look.

1.Mix Different Washes

A beginner doing denim on denim should start with a pretty basic rule: mix different washes. Either a light top and dark bottoms, or dark top and light bottoms. It’s a pretty easy, no fail way to start. Personally, I like a light top and dark bottoms because the dark bottoms “ground” your outfit and are more slimming.

2. Accessorize

Don’t have different washes but still want to try? This can be a little tricker but look great if you accessorize! Add pops of color, necklaces, and other things to mix it up.

3. Break it up

Want to try denim on denim but not sure if you’re totally in? A good way to get your feet wet would be breaking up the denim. Either by tying it around your waist, adding a blazer, or wearing it as a vest or jacket are all good places to start.

Whether you like it or not, it’s a cool look that’s worth playing around with. Who knows, maybe you’d start a trend that’s completely unique. But please, o please, call me before you get to this point:
