Double Denim Overload
Posted on 19 February 2018
It’s official. The world has finally got over Britney and Justin’s 2001 double denim duo and we’re ready to start piling on the blue stuff again. Double, triple, even quadruple denim is now a thing, so we’ve put together a guide to all things denim and how to get away with styling this trend without looking like a Britney and JT tribute act.
One of the easiest and most straightforward ways of doing double denim is the jean suit. Choose a blazer style denim jacket and pair with some loose leg denim trousers (full length or cropped) to do casual workwear in style. Layer them with a plain white tee to keep it cool and finish with a pair of heels to give it some catwalk vibes.
Style It 90s
It’s no secret we’re all still a little weak at the knees for the 90s, and there are plenty of nostalgia points in denim. Make like a girl band member and pick a pair of high waisted mom jeans to style with a cropped denim jacket. We’ve even heard that the Spice Girl-esque platform trainers are on the rise if you really want to go the whole hog…
Contrast The Tones
If you’re not a fan of those matchy-matchy denim vibes, work your layers with different denim washes to give it a more contrasted feel. Pick a dark denim skirt to wear with a soft sky denim vest top, or style a washed pair of jeans with a deep blue denim shirt.
Colour The Layers
Go one step further from contrasting tones and look to coloured denim if you’re not all about the blue. Tuck a classic blue denim shirt into your favourite pair of black boyfriend jeans and finish with some retro trainers.
Of course, denim is a casual staple, but you can give the look a polish with some clever style touches. Pick dark inky tones, such as black, navy blue and even white, and wear them with chic style separates such as a pair of patent black boots or even a layered rollneck.
The double denim look also ties in with fashion’s current love for the Wild West, but you can take the look further with a studded belt or a pair of cowboy boots. Finish with some minimal jewellery or an understated watch with a brown strap to ensure the look stays refined.
Double Denim Men
The double denim trend isn’t reserved just for women. Men can also get in on the act, whether it’s with a Beckham-esque pair of distressed jeans and a denim shirt, or a smart pair of skinny jeans, a white tee and a denim jacket.
