Denim-on-denim became acceptable, heck, downright FASHIONABLE a few years ago…and though many people still refer to this look as the “Canadian Tuxedo” (lol), and can’t get bad, early ’90s flashbacks out of their heads when they even think of doing denim on both the top and bottom of an outfit…I’m actually a huge fan of this look, I think BECAUSE of the irony of it all!  I think it’s done best when it doesn’t look like you are trying to match the two denim pieces exactly– in this outfit, the lighter denim wash in the chambray shirt contrasts nicely with the darker jeans.  Throwing in a third, or “completer piece”, like the leather jacket, adds a texture contrast to the outfit and keeps it from looking too “country” or “farmer”.  Same goes for the heels– I chose blue suede J.Crew heels in order to keep the outfit kinda monochromatic.  The marble Rebecca Minkoff clutch and mirrored Wildfox sunnies are two of my definite stand-by pieces this spring as well– they add just the right amount of edge to so many outfits! My favorite oversized gold chain-link necklace and bracelet add the perfect metallic shine.

Wearing denim in unexpected ways, particularly in the form of dresses and overalls, is a MAJOR trend for spring/summer (I’m still deciding on which of each I’m going to commit to!)– below, shop some of my favorite denim picks for Spring!

Happy Weekend!

    You look great in this blue on blue outfit. Really liking how you styled these blue skinny jeans cuffed up with your blue suede stilettos. Super cute! And… I am in love with that Tory Burch bag you have here.
