double the denim

I love denim on denim: it’s simple and effortless, a no-brainer when you feel like you have “nothing to wear,” and most important, it’s all kinds of comfortable. I think the trick to pulling it off in a polished way is picking quality pieces, and mixing shades and textures on the top and bottom.

It’s easy to get denim shirt fever and end up with a dozen variations in your closet. But when it comes down to it, two is plenty: a boyfriend-fit long sleeve button down that can do double duty as a shirt and jacket, and a short sleeve chambray tee.

    When it comes to denim, I’ve been really getting into buying darker/raw denim. What do you think about them?

    Ah.. the Canadian Tuxedo, if done right, it is SO right!
    I gotta disagree with you though… you can never have two many denim shirts in your closet :)

  23. 9.8.14

    Love the Canadian Tuxedo look! I find some shades don’t always match together really well though so sometimes I have a hard time getting that exact look I want.

    I did double denim a long time ago and remember that someone made fun of me. And now it’s cool. Well, look who’s ahead of the trend now.
