The new Gap ads and the runway shows from the likes of brands such as Esprit, Ralph Lauren, Banana Republic, D&G and Chloe coming out this season should indicate that jeans are perennial, and that denim is all-season long.
It’s a fashion statement that was made a long time ago and has since been improved and altered and played around. But regardless of jeans’ effortless style, denim-on-denim has always been a little tricky.
The key is to mix the fabric weights and the washes. Pair a light wash, lightweight chambray shirt with a dark wash denim skirt or a pair of jeans.
The trick is always for to go for two shades of denim, like maybe a black pair of jeans and a blue denim jacket, which seems a pretty good staple that everyone goes back to.
Maybe it is fine to match washes only with a little denim vest on top of a different color. It would really break the shades and give the eyes more to look at.
And don’t forget to accessorize! The denim on denim look can be a base that might be monochromatic in flavor, so it might help to spruce up your look with a very scene-stealing pair of sky-high heels or decadent faux “diamante” necklace, chandelier earrings, or maybe even some piled-up bangles on your arms.
The denim-on-denim combo is a great look for going back to school.
