Jeans, shirts and jackets are the key pieces we find made in denim, that cotton based fabric we all love and can't live without.
Skinny jeans have become a wardrobe staple, and thanks to the catwalks, denim is absolutely everywhere this season. The great thing is we all have some already, so YAY, we are officially trendy. Now, all we need to do is discover new ways to wear it.
Celebs have given us lots of help with this but maybe what's even more helpful is how shops are laid out with separate denim sections to help us style it. Denim is so popular, it gets its own bit on shop floors. You only have to take a stroll around the high street to see all the denim sections.
But this season, take note of what our favourite shops have beside their denims. This is très importante because it gives hints to make shopping for denim based looks a little less stressful (but, yes, it also tempts our eyes and credit cards too).
We have Kate Moss and Sienna Miller to thank for getting the trend on every magazine page out there. So I took a challenge this week to try and get the double denim thing right.
Now, there are a couple of guidelines to bear in mind.
Firstly, I think the double denim look works better with high waisted jeans. They give nice proportion around the hips, as well as making your legs look longer. An d in terms of tops, short and fitted keeps it all in check, and on the stylish side of casual.
This Penneys shirt is actually quite long, but as it's tapered at the waist, it can be tucked in. Plain denim is nice, but with the "double" I fancy a pattern, print or adding in another colour. So, as you can see, the white is a good choice.
You also need to have two different shades; try a lighter one on top and a darker denim for the jeans. So essentially, you are colour blocking within the same shade.
Now if you want to get the look yourself, I've done some research and found the key (and affordable!) pieces for trying out the DD.
So what's the verdict beauties? Can we style up the double denim trend?
