The Denim Debate: A Guide To Denim-on-Denim

Denim on denim or the canadian tuxedo has been considered a giant fashion don't for a long time (I blame Justin and Britney). Of course there are exceptions to every rule, and I think if it's styled right denim-on-denim can look amazing! So with that being said, here is my guide for those daring enough to make this controversial style choice! xx Flo

Printed Denim
A pair of printed denim shorts (like these from Isabel Marant) can make your denim-on-denim outfit have more texture, and have less of a uniform color to it!

Layered Up
This is my favorite way to wear denim-on-denim! Layering your favorite coats and sweaters with a light wash denim shirt complements a dark wash pair of jeans perfectly.

Bleached Denim
This is the most subtle way to ease into denim-on-denim. A bleached denim jacket (like this one from Rag and Bone) looks great with a pair of black jeans.

Distressed Denim
Just like prints, distressed denim can give your whole outfit some extra texture! I love this jacket from Topshop paired with this striped tee.

Boyfriend Jeans
The relaxed fit of BF jeans give a denim-on-denim outfit a fun oversized look.

Light on Dark
Wearing a light wash jacket and a dark wash skirt can keep your outfit from looking like one big denim suit!

  6. Although denim on denim is something I'd personally never try (unless it's blue denim with black jeans) and don't particularly like, I do think it's fab that you & others are daring enough to do so, and you've put together some great sets that make the trend work! Keep it up xx
