I bet you too, have those days where you have no idea what to wear. You stare for hours at your wardrobe packed with things you love, but somehow, you just can’t find anything you are in the mood to wear. For those kinds of days, we have the perfect solution; a double denim look, which is simply infallible.
Pair your favourite jeans with a denim shirt or a jeans jacket, et voilá, you’re ready to go!
We know this is not a new trend; it’s been around for as long as I can remember. From Elvis and Marilyn Monroe in the ’50s and early ‘60s, and the gorgeous Robert Redford in a tackier than tacky double jeans look paired with a beret in the infamous ‘70s, to the sexy Debbie Harry from the pop band “Blondie”, Madonna and the ultra-chic Sade in the ’80s, they all loved the double denim. And let’s not forget the Grunge trend in the ’90s, and Gwyneth Paltrow in the year 2000; celebrities have been rocking the jeans-on-jeans look through the decades. With the come back of the ‘90s trends, we’ve seen lately on Instagram Hailey Bieber and Gigi Hadid, among others, looking fantastic in their denim outfits.
The double-denim can be worn in various ways, with top and trousers in the same wash and colour, or one piece lighter than the other.
I think wearing a double-denim look in the same hue is chicer, while one piece darker than the other is more informal. You can dress up your outfit with accessories for a cool office look and even wear a double-jeans look to a fancy restaurant or party.
It is an easy-to-achieve look, cool and ageless; the only colour combination I do not recommend is the top and bottom pieces in almost the same tone but not quite there; it looks cheap and seems you were trying to go for a same-wash look but failed.
