Your Rulebook for Wearing Denim on Denim

As a fashion guru, you know the importance of working denim into your wardrobe. This incredibly comfortable fabric helps create your favorite pair of pants, as well as giving you some of the most stylish jackets in your wardrobe. A classic style that is making a comeback in modern fashion is the look of wearing denim on denim. While this fashion statement can look outstanding when done correctly, it can look equally as poor when it is done wrong. If you want to pull off this one of a kind look, here are a few tips to follow along to make it work.

Color Balance

With an endless amount of possible hues and washes, find the right balance for your denim on denim ensemble may be the hardest challenge you have. Wearing the exact same color on top of one another can create a blending look that can be unflattering if the clothes don't properly fit your silhouette. On the other hand, if you wear two styles of denim which are far too contrasting in color can be a little off-putting.

If you do opt for a similar wash for your double denim style, make sure your selections are form fitting and work well with your silhouette. A long sleeve denim shirt tucked into a pair of straight leg jeans and a classy pair of low-heel sandals or boots can create an outstanding elongated look to your body. If you do go for a contrasted look, make sure it is not too far off. A washed out, almost white denim shirt won't look good on top of a dark pair if the blue hue is still too noticeable in both.


Just like any outfit in your closet, the accessories can either make or break a look, and this saying may not be truer than when wearing a double denim style.

While you may be tempted to throw in some denim accessories to take the look to the next level, say with a small purse, this may take you too close to the Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake look of the 2001 American Music Awards.

When you are deciding on what accessories to pair with your "Canadian Tuxedo," your two favorite materials should be gold and leather. A gold bracelet, earrings, or necklace will all add some needed color and flash to your outfit to provide a touch of sophistication. If you are picking out the right bag, shoes, or even trendy thick bracelet, black leather is one of the best things you can pair with denim. This material adds excellent edginess and character to your look, completing the one of a kind style.
