For some reason, when I’m stumped on what to wear, I always find myself reaching for the good old Canadian Tux– (no offense, northern friends, we love this look!) It’s easy, comfortable, and actually more fashionable than you think– def one of my fave looks. Here are some of my past double denim looks:
To me, the key to pairing two different denim items is NOT trying to match the shades exactly– I like a little contrast, either in level of wash, or with distressing.
I wore this double denim look this past Sunday, for a day of food truck feasting and flea market shopping in Brooklyn:
See how the distressing on the jeans makes the perfect contrast with the uniformity of the chambray top’s coloring? I added the grey snakeskin loafers (faves of the season!) for a comfy, walkable, but fashionable forward touch, and carried my old fave quilted Marc Jacobs gold chain strap bag to add a bit of glamour to the overall look. Voila! — my go to weekend/fave lazy outfit.
Hope you try the double denim look this weekend!
