Double denim is the latest controversial trend to hit catwalks this season, a flashback to the 90’s trend. Love it or loathe it, it’s set to be big. You may quiver in fear or embrace it, but it is by no means an easy look to pull off! There is a fine line between looking highly fashionable and looking like a truck driver.
Tips for wearing double denim:
Don’t wear two pieces of the same shade – it makes the outfit clash. Contrast is the key to making it work, try wearing very dark jeans with a lighter shirt (like the picture of Alexa Chung, above).
Accessorizing is a good way to break the outfit up. Try wearing colourful flats, a nice handbag or some jewellery.
Never go for more than two pieces of denim per outfit, ‘triple denim’ is going overboard.
Do not wear with cowboy boots or a cowboy hat, unless you really want the Wild West look. Flats are definitely the best option.
Here are some of my favourite denim pieces (just don’t wear them altogether!):
Bleach Denim Oversized Shirt – Topshop
Dark Rinse Super Skinny Jeans – Dorothy Perkins
Raw Edge Denim Mini Skirt – New Look
High Waisted Hotpants – Topshop
Colour Block Denim Dress – Whistles (ASOS)
