Get Creative With Colors
If you’re a total beginner to the double denim trend, you can start by playing with different colors of denim together. For example, you can pair white or black jeans with a blue denim jacket. After all, a two-tone double denim look is timeless and is almost impossible to get wrong.
Once you feel more comfortable with the double denim trend, you can then start experimenting with wearing different shades of blue.
Make sure all your pieces have a similar vibe, so the outfit has an element of cohesion.
We recommend not to pair pieces that are too similar though, as you don’t want to look overly matchy-matchy. The point of the double denim trend is to look effortlessly cool, and if your pieces all match perfectly then it may look a little try-hard.
Ditch Denim Accessories
When it comes to wearing denim, keep it confined to the clothing. Never overdose on the look by wearing any denim accessories, such as a denim bag, hat, or shoes.
By overdoing it on the denim, again the look will come across as too try-hard – not the vibe you’re going for!
Dress up Double Denim
That doesn’t mean you can’t dress up your double denim look, though. Don’t be afraid to elevate and accessorize your outfit with luxe-looking items, such as a cute clutch, a trendy tuxedo blazer, or a fabulous red lip.
Due to the casual pairing of two denim pieces, this is one look you can pull out all the stops for.
Metallic accents, in particular, liven up washed denim – think glitzy jewelry and statement heels.
By adding glamorous accessories to a double denim outfit that would otherwise look casual, you can give off that edgy and trendy feel. And without any accessories at all, a double denim look would simply come across as – dare we say – boring.
