Double Denim

It seems nearly every fashion faux pas has its moment in the sun. What has long been deemed a don’t, somehow becomes a do. Take for example, the idea of wearing denim on denim.
Often referred to as the “Kentucky tuxedo,” wearing denim on the top and bottom has been seen as something worn by farmhands, and those who lack sartorial savvy. Over the last few seasons, we have been seeing it sneak up on us, and this spring, its reached a fever pitch!

There are of course rules involved in breaking this strict rule of denim wearing.
Mix the shades, don’t match them. Mixing of textures and tones make the look a bit less matchy-matchy, and adds an air of “I don’t care” chic to the look.

Keep it simple, and keep it casual. This isn’t about a denim suit, ( although we saw lots of them on the runways for men!)

When in doubt, let the experts do the mixing. Denim mixology can be a fine art, and brands like Paige Denim and Citizens of Humanity took the guesswork out of it, by making items that already mix the shades of indigo to perfection.

Here are just a few of the looks we love.
