Denim on denim is a trendy thing which will never go out of fashion. For most of the people denim on denim or a double denim is a big time “No-No”, however, if styled in a good manner it looks amazing.
The trick for getting denim on denim right is all about the pieces we choose to wear.
Most of us think that denim on denim is of 80’s and 90’s, however, it’s not the case, so I am writing the blog to give a outline on the basics and general rules of double denim and how to make it work, for both men and women!
Most of us are willing to wear denim on denim , however confusion arrives that how to style it in appropriate way. The key to this is selecting appropriate shades that are totally different from each other. This means pairing a light washed blue denim jacket or shirt with dark blue, black or grey jeans. You can do it the other way around with dark washes on top and lighter on the bottom, but I find that it looks better the first way as darker colors are more slimming on the bottom, creating a much nicer illusion to your proportions.
The next rule is opting for a fitted jeans , shirt or a vest, I think loose jeans will never give that effect of denim on denim. The next option which will go would be using same color different shades and accessorizing it with the oxidized neck piece or earrings.
Layering over a coat or smart blazer also brings another classy element to double denim so it doesn’t always have to look casual.
The rules of denim on denim for men and women are same, in terms of wanting to wear double denim in similar washes, so if you don’t want to mix up your blue shades, put a printed sweater on underneath your jacket, have some bolder shoes, throw on some sunglasses.
Lot of times we think, our wardrobe is full of clothes however when going for any event or occasion we are confused what to wear, how to wear, most of us thinks that we don’t have THE PERFECT outfit for the event, we are hardly satisfied with the number of outfits we are having in our wardrobe, (though having lots of collections) Am I correct?
When thinking about the wardrobe’s essentials, lots of questions are banging most of our heads, what should be essential in order to make a trend proof wardrobe with the basic style of clothing, what should be the different accessories, how the clothing itself will lead to develop different styles and fashions, what colors should be preferred, what would be that one piece of outfit which can be paired with most of them and so on.
So here are few basic essentials which you should have in your wardrobe in order to style yourself:
This is one of the most versatile piece in the wardrobe. Whether in white or blue , styling it gives a classic as well as trendy look as well. You can wear the shirt under blazers and sweaters, paired with shorts in the summer with the sleeves rolled up, and even as a beach cover up.
T-shirt can be styled in many ways, When looking for the perfect t-shirt, you must ask yourself if it will look good worn simply with jeans + under a blazer + tucked into a high-waist skirt. A u-neck t-shirt, with a slightly boxy fit and shorter sleeve fits the bill.
A black dress can be wore in various functions from a cocktail party to a evening party or in weddings.How do you find such a versatile dress? Let me count the ways: 1. Go for short sleeve or sleeveless, which is perfect for cocktail parties and weddings. As a general rule, if the length is longer, the sleeve should be shorter.
One blazer everyone can use for most of the occasion is Tuxedo Blazer.I know it sounds crazy, but it can be worn with jeans, or with your skinny black pant for a “tux” which will work in for a cocktail dress or for formal occasions.
A leather jacket instantly adds an edge to any outfit and helps bring a new texture into your wardrobe. A classic black, beidge jacket would be a perfect one and will never go out of style.
“Sharp black pant”, I mentioned so it should be a tailored , crisp pant. The black pant would be combined with any shade of the shirt, blazers , it can be versatile in it’s pwn style. Choosing a synthetic fabric for your straight pant is acceptable because it won’t wrinkle when you sit down, as most natural fibers do. It will also help keep them looking “sharp”.
Jeans would swing in with various shirts, T-shirts and can be combined and made trendy in multiple ways using scarves, jackets and so on.
A feminine delicate flat is timeless, would never go out of style, The comfort feeling is perceived by flats too. Focusing on comfort, most importantly, because you will wear these shoes when you want an “off-duty” day. Matt or glossy both can be preferable.
A mid-heel black pump is always in trend in the case of formals. Can prefer for no more than a 3.5″ heel height, in black leather, with a slightly elongated toe to lengthen your leg, this type of heel cannot be out of the box, though other heels type might be.
These versatile stuffs can be combined and can wear it in various style in order to make yourself trendy and fashionable. If these is in your wardrobe, mark me you can make 100+ styles using this.
So what are you waiting for, Explore your wardrobe and discover your own styles.
