THE STYLE EDITION: DOUBLE DENIM – LOVE IT OR HATE IT?

Do you dare to go double denim?

Continuing with my newly featured style posts, I wanted to dip into a slightly controversial topic, perhaps you could call it a ‘marmite’ topic; double denim. Personally, I’m a big fan if done right! I’m sure you all remember that so bad it’s good Britney and Justin fashion moment, both draped in denim from tip to toe. A fashion feature of the 90’s has done a 360 and it’s in full swing this season with touches of embroidery and bold start prints. It’s a tricky one to master and there’s a few do’s and don’ts to follow if you want to stand out from the crowd and rock this look.

Do

If you’re a double denim newbie the key is keeping it simple. Don’t go OTT on the rest of your look. I always style my denim jackets with a plain polo or t-shirt underneath, usually something in black, to save your outfit from looking too busy.

Incorporate some detail. If you are going to take the plunge and pair denim from top to toe, then pick a piece with some character. There are some cool jeans out there laden with beautiful embroidery, go girly, it works! When it comes to star print, I’m like a moth to a flame so this would be my go-to print of choice, it’s cool, fun and adds a little somethin’ somethin’ to a double denim outfit.

Don’t
Don’t pair denim with denim accessories – number one rule! As much as I LOVE my denim start print boots, which you can check out here, It would be way too much

The main question are you love it or hate it, I’m desperate to know so leave me a comment my loves!
