I know what you are thinking- double denim is a fashion disaster. However Double Denim can work if it is done right. We all remember the double denim outfits that Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake wore to the American Music Awards. She was wearing a bustier denim dress and he was wearing a denim suit with that awful cowboy denim hat. Double denim is back in! Designers such as Miu Miu showcased Double Denim at their spring summer show. Try not to make the double denim ‘matchy-matchy’- denim shoes, denim hat, denim dress and denim bag etc. For inspiration take a look at celebrities like Rihanna and Miranda Kerr who have rocked the Double Denim look well. It can be pulled off by all ages-whether in the teens, 20s, 30s, 40s and grown and fabulous.
Here are 3 ways Double Denim can be done:
1) Head to toe
This means that the top and bottom has the same or similar shade of blue. This outfit works with simple and neutral accessories. For a contemporary look try and add bold accessories like a studded bag or a statement belt.

For a ladylike look try a denim dress or a denim shirt with a denim pencil skirt. This could be paired with feminine jewellery and elegant court shoes.

3) Mix and Match
For this look to be achieved, mix and match different types of denims. This can be done for example wearing a denim shirt with distressed jeans. Additionally, wearing different colours of denim can work for example light washed out jeans with a darker denim top. Now a lot of jeans are mixed with leather or patterns. If you are looking for a contemporary look try jeans like this and a denim top. It is okay to mix and match.
