How To Wear Denim On Denim Trend

Another throwback to fashion seasons of the past is layering denim. If you have a denim jacket in the back of your closet, pull it out, and layer with a pair of stylish denim capris or jeans. You can mesh together different shades of denim to achieve a dressed down look. Wearing a darker shade of denim for the top, pair your relaxed jeans in a lighter shade. Monochromatic is a single based shade expanded by adding various tints. Pair a lighter washed denim jacket with jeans similar in hues. You can also achieve the same look using a denim top and pair of skinny jeans in black.

You might have thought it was a trend consigned to the very worst excesses of the 80s, but all signs point to the denim jacket and jeans combo making a bit of a comeback. Even if you don’t want to go the double denim route, at least try investing in a denim jacket and wearing the material up top for a change – thanks to prominent faces like Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam rocking the trend, you’ll find plenty to choose from in the shops.

Stella McCartney, Jean Paul Gaultier and – especially – Ralph Lauren prepared a strong dose of denim for their spring summer collections. Even though the head-to-toe denim look is usually a fashion “don’t”, it’s no longer a shame to wear it this way (at least this season). I wouldn’t recommend mixing different denim styles and colors but it’s also very fashionable today so I think we should all get out our denim jackets, shirts, vests, shorts and skirts from the darkest nooks of our wardrobes.

How to wear denim in spring and summer?

Peek-A-Boo Denim Trend

One of the most important spring denim trends is denim jackets peeking out from underneath blazers (very fashionable!) and leather jackets. This layered look dates back to 1990s’ and I’m sure Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth have probably worn it somewhere in Beverly Hills 90210.

Ripped, Torn and Patched Denim

Even though it doesn’t look too elegant, ripped, torn and patched denim is going to rule spring streets around the world. It used to be a huge trend not long ago so you probably won’t need to buy a new pair of trendy ripped jeans. This type of jeans trend dates back to 1980’s so this is where you can get your inspiration from (and from celebrities like Victoria Beckham, Halle Berry and Nicole Richie who have been sporting this trend).

How to wear the denim on denim trend?

Wearing denim on denim, also known as the “Canadian tuxedo,” can be a stylish and fashionable trend if done right. Here are some tips on how to rock the denim-on-denim look:

Mix Different Denim Washes: To create a balanced and visually appealing denim-on-denim outfit, mix different denim washes. For example, pair light-washed jeans with a darker denim shirt or jacket. The contrast between the two washes will add depth to your outfit.

Pay Attention to Fit: Make sure both denim pieces fit well and flatter your body shape. If you’re wearing a denim shirt or jacket, ensure it’s not too oversized or too tight. The same goes for your jeans. A well-fitted ensemble will make the look more polished and stylish.

Add a Pop of Colour: Break up the denim-on-denim look by adding a pop of colour. You can do this with accessories like a colourful scarf, a bright handbag, or bold shoes. The splash of colour will add interest and dimension to your outfit.

Layer with Other Fabrics: Incorporate other fabrics and textures to balance the denim. For instance, wear a lightweight cotton or silk blouse under your denim jacket, or add a textured knit sweater over your denim shirt. Mixing fabrics will make your outfit more visually appealing.

Use Denim as a Base: Let denim serve as the base of your outfit, and build upon it with other clothing pieces. For example, wear a denim button-up shirt with a skirt or pair of trousers. This approach allows you to incorporate denim into your look without overwhelming the entire outfit.

Try Denim with White: Pairing denim with white creates a fresh and chic look. A white top or white jeans with a denim jacket is a classic combination that exudes summery vibes.

Break up the Look with Accessories: Use accessories to break up the denim-on-denim look. Consider wearing a statement belt to define your waist or add a scarf for a touch of elegance. Accessories can add personality and style to your outfit.

Opt for Different Textures: Mix denim with different textured fabrics to add interest. Try pairing distressed jeans with a denim jacket or chambray shirt. The varying textures will add dimension to your outfit.

Roll Up Sleeves and Cuffs: Rolling up the sleeves of your denim shirt or jacket and cuffing your jeans can add a relaxed and effortless vibe to the look. It also breaks up the solid denim expanse and adds a touch of style.

Confidence is Key: Lastly, wear the denim-on-denim trend with confidence. Fashion is all about personal style, and if you feel good in the outfit, it will show. Embrace the trend and make it your own.

The key to pulling off the denim-on-denim trend is to create contrast and balance within your outfit. By mixing different washes, fabrics, and colours, you can achieve a fashionable and chic look that embraces this classic and versatile trend.
