What’s better than denim? Even more denim. The double denim trend from the ‘90s and early 2000s is back with a vengeance, and you don’t have to be a runway model to make it look good. Before disregarding denim-on-denim as a fashion faux pas, check out these surprisingly stylish ways to rock the look.
Boyfriend Jeans, T-Shirt and Denim Jacket
If you feel like treading softly into the double denim trend, try this daytime casual look. Pair some comfy boyfriend jeans with a neutral or striped tee. On top, sport a classic denim jacket. Finish the look with a leather crossbody bag, a piece of statement jewelry, running shoes, and a baseball cap.
Jeggings, Chambray Top and Heeled Booties
If traditional jeans aren’t your thing, you’ll love this next double denim ensemble. Put away your jeans in favor of a dark wash jegging. Choose lighter denim for the top to create some contrast. While not exactly denim, a button-down chambray top with chest patch pockets helps create a trendy spring look. Slide on a pair of black heeled booties and sunglasses to complete the look.
Denim Skirt, Denim Jacket, and Scarf
With warmer weather on the horizon, skirts will once again become a staple in our wardrobes. This double denim look features a mid-thigh distressed denim skirt, casual tee, and a denim jacket with fun embellishments like patched elbows. For an extra touch of color and texture, tie a decorative scarf around one of the belt loops of the skirt.
Denim Overalls, Chambray Top, and Heels
Who says adults can’t wear overalls? This all-denim outfit features denim overalls with a chambray button-up shirt. The key to wearing it like a grown-up is to choose form-fitting overalls that hug your feminine curves. Add a few key accessories like an oversized watch or choker. Then, bring some instant color to the game with a pair of heels in a fun spring color like aqua, lavender, or yellow.
Skinny Jeans, Button-Up, and Fringe Bag
The double denim trend is not exclusive to two shades of blue. Try mixing up different shades of denim, such as a blue denim jacket and black jeans. Keep accessories dainty and simple, such as a chain bracelet or skinny watch. You can also try combining your fav spring trends — like two pieces of denim and a fringe hobo bag.
Denim on denim is one of the season’s easier trends to master — give it a shot and let us know how many compliments you get!
