Styling Double Denim

It was a look many of us vowed never to go near after Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake's infamous AMAs macthing double denim ensembles. But it looks like the days of head-to-toe denim being a style no-no are well and truly behind us. The double denim trend is back with a vengeance!
If you're anything like us, many of you probably have your feet firmly planted within your style comfort zones, cringing at the idea of dripping in denim. But by no means do you have to stick to the same denim from head to toe. Our advice? Experiment with contrasting denim washes and colours for a more subtle double denim look. And most importantly, have fun with it!

 Lacey Days
We're always banging on about accessorising, but the right statement necklace really can up your fashionista status. We know that white denim can be a scary thing, especially since tomato sauce always seems to be attracted to it! But white shorts like these are perfect to pair with darker washed denim, and who can resist the lace trimming?!!



 


Shirt: Target
Shorts: Just Jeans
Necklace: Lovisa
Shoes: MissShop



Stripe a Pose
Break up your denim pieces by layering them with your favourite basics. Opting for a cropped denim jacket also creates the illusion of longer legs!





Jacket: Dotti
Top: Glassons
Rings: Lovisa

Stonewashed Siren
Play around with textures by mixing acid and stonewashed pieces  or embllished styles, or be adventurous and combine both wtih a top like this. The floral embroidery adds a fenimine touch to the 80s and 90s styled denim.

  16. Denim on denim is a tough look to pull off, but I like how you incorporated black & white to balance it out.
