Lately I’ve been wearing a lot of denim. Denim shorts, dresses, jackets, overalls, you name it. There’s something so summery and all-American about denim. In the summer I always go for lighter washes that are a little baggy and distressed. They look perfectly lived in and not too stiff for the hot weather. Today, I’ve decided to double up on denims and go for a denim on denim look. Layering on denim can either be really right or really wrong. We don’t want to go for a repeat of Justin and Britney’s 2001 AMA look. (or do we?) One DON’T for denim, is don’t pair multiple items of the same shade of denim with each other. If you’re wearing dark wash jeans, don’t wear the same dark wash denim as a jacket or shirt. But also don’t make the denims completely opposite shades either; really dark denim mixed with super light denim is a no. DO find denims that are similar washes but not the same exact shade. The denim jacket I’m wearing is lighter than my shorts but the blue in both is similar, just distressed differently. Also, DO keep the rest of the outfit simple. A plain shirt in blue, black, or white looks great with denim and doesn’t distract from the rest of the outfit. I thought the blue tones I’m wearing are perfect for a day at the beach; casual and blue like the ocean.
