How She’d Wear It with Style and Cheek – Denim on Denim

HSWI August 2014

For August on ‘How She’d Wear It’ we’re going to explore the wonderful world of denim. As a jeans and t-shirt kind of gal I am all for this and decided to start the month off with a bang and cover denim on denim. Oh yes, today we’re taking on one of the tackiest trends out there and showing you that if done right it can be really cute.

Here is the key to making this trend work: pick denim pieces that are different washes. Do a light on top and dark on bottom or the other way around. If your denim colors are too close then people might assume your style icons are Brit and JT circa 2001. You want to wear denim on denim without really looking like you’re wearing denim on denim, so mix different shades to break up the look and keeps things from being too monochromatic.

The easiest denim on denim pairing is the chambray and jean combo. As long as your denim is different you’re gonna win this one so have fun with accessories, put on some heels and rock that Canadian Tuxedo. The denim pieces act as a blank canvas so you can dress it up or down. I went with some killer Valentino heels, a gold clutch, and the sexiest matte sunglasses I could find. You can seriously wear whatever accessories you want because if there is one thing denim calls for, it’s being draped in bling.

Denim cutoffs are the epitome of summer clothing. Basically any summertime movie ever made about high school kids features somebody in cutoffs. But since it’s (sadly) already August, I’ve decided to add some layers to this outfit so you can bring it into early fall. The main focus here is pairing the denim jacket and cutoffs with a white button down. Super simple, chic, and put together. To make your outfit more city than country, elevate it with a silk shirt and luxe accessories. Add a comfy sweater in a fall color, some leopard flats, and a few bangles and you’re set.
