Denim on denim, or if speaking in Instagram hashtags isn’t your thing, “denim on denim” is just pairing one piece of denim clothing with another piece of denim clothing. MIND BLOWN? I know. Listen, I know, this is ground breaking stuff. Anyway, this look is one of the most effortless styling hacks in history and one of my favorites. Why? Honestly, the thought process is almost non-existent and it makes getting dressed for early school drop off utterly painless. Mom brain can’t even mess this up. However, there are just a couple of tips and tricks one can consider when attempting to throw on their jean get-up of the day. #JGUOTD (making that happen. Right now). I mean, we don’t want to look like Britney and Justin circa 2001.
1.) Play with colors. If the basic blue match-up isn’t your thing, pair black denim with a chambray shirt or white jean jacket with dark denim.
2.)I think the best bet is to avoid the exact same wash and color. Pairing darker denim with a lighter wash is much more stylish and interesting.
3.) Jazz up dem jeans! Throw on some appliques, brooches, patches, old clip on earrings, and make the denim the back drop for your own artistic additions.
4.) Denim contour. Use light washes to enhance your favorite features and darker colors to slim down the rest.
5.) Large pockets, fun buttoms, distressed finishes? Find pieces with distinctive features to pair together.
