The Definitive Denim Style Guide
Denim on Denim: Dare I?
Go for it. This combo was long considered a don’t, but now it’s a completely fashionable weekend look. The key to getting
it right is to incorporate different shades of denim and simple styles. (That means no matchy-matchy separates or, say, a
studded denim jacket with a tiered jean skirt.) “Dark jeans with a lighter chambray shirt work best,” says Ciepluch, who recommends
breaking up the top and the bottom with a belt.
