Denim On Denim: Do You Dare?

Denim On Denim: Do You Dare?

If you haven’t noticed from my Instagram feed, I’m a huge fan of denim-based outfit styling! I pick out my jeans first {based on my mood}, and then style the entire look around the denim. I also can’t get enough of the #canadiantuxedo AKA denim on denim! It’s one of those things that will never go out of style, and anyone call pull off the look. I’ve recently styled denim on denim two ways…one with a vintage twist…one with an urban twist…and BOTH involved a little DIY fun!Processed with VSCO with s1 presetProcessed with VSCO with s1 preset                                                     Denim-On-Denim Styling Rules:

1.) There are NO RULES!!! {only tips}

2.) Have fun with mixing denim shades…the more the contrast, the cooler it looks!

3.) If you go oversized on the top opt for a more fitted denim on the bottom, and vice versa to avoid looking swallowed by the denim 😉

4.) Dress it up with stilettos OR down with sneakers…again, there are absolutely NO RULES when it comes to this fun look!

5.) Get creative! Go thrifting for vintage denim pieces. Raid your closet for old denim and repurpose it by cutting and/or embellishing.

Processed with VSCO with s1 presetFor both of my looks I decided to make a few bold cuts to improve the fit and give them a bit of an edge. For the embellished vintage jacket {that I snagged for 5 bucks while thrifting}, I cut off the collar entirely to create an off-the-shoulder look and an open back. For the urban style jacket with the fringed hem, I cut out the material in between where the seams meet and then popped the collar to create an edgier vibe!

Be sure to use sharp fabric scissors so that you make clean, straight cuts. I hope this inspires you to get creative with denim looks! If you’re a pro at this already, I’d love to see what you’ve done so drop me a comment below!!Processed with VSCO with s1 presetVintage Jacket Look- Jeans (thrifted from Plato’s closet) // Heels: JustFab // Faux Fur Clutch: Missguided // Fashion Glasses: AliExpress — Urban Style Jacket Look- Jacket: Citi Trends // Jeans: Old Navy // Clutch: Zara // Sunnies (old)
