Denim is an essential. I don't know anyone who doesn't have a pair of jeans, jean shorts or a jean jacket. Denim can be paired with a multitude of other fabrics, including itself. Here's a quick guide to the denim on denim trend - guaranteed to steer you away from any fashion faux pas:
  • Personally, I've found that a dark wash is easier to wear as a full on denim on denim look. Though people may say that mixing washes looks better, it's up to you. A dark top with light bottoms looks good. However, it really depends on the circumstance and the type of jean you pick. Wearing a single wash head to toe looks better when the bottom piece shows some leg [ex: shorts or a mini skirt], as this breaks up the uniformity and steers you away from a cowboy look!
  • Choose wearable pieces [ex: not denim overalls with a denim vest on top]
  • Add interesting accessories to create an original and less uniform look. 
  • Accept. Yes, the denim on denim trend is a controversial look. Some people love it, some people hate it. Forge your own opinion and embrace it.

Le jean est incontournable. Je ne connais personne qui ne possède pas de jean classique, short en jean ou veste en jean. Cette matière s'associe à merveille avec une multitudes de textures, mais aussi, à elle même. Voici un guide rapide vous permettant de ne pas commettre de faux pas en portant un total look jean:
  • Personnellement, je trouve que le jean foncé est plus facile à porter en total look (le jean plus clair, ou délavé, donne l'air vulgaire ou trop enfantin). Cependant, il y a des gens qui trouvent plus jolie de mélanger les lavages, ça dépend. Un haut foncé avec un bas clair marche. Par contre, tout dépend vraiment de la circonstance et le type de jean que vous choisissez. Porter un type de jean, de la tête aux pieds, rend bien quand le bas dévoile un peu de jambe [ex: un short ou une mini jupe], car il n'y a plus autant d'uniformité et vous ne ressemblez pas à un cowboy!
  • Choisissez des pieces faciles à porter [ex: une salopette en jean avec une veste en jean est fortement déconseillée].
  • Ajoutez des accessoires qui attirent l'œil pour créer un look plus intéressant et moins uniforme.
  • Assumez. Et oui, le "denim on denim" est un look spécial que beaucoup de gens craignent. Il faut simplement oser!

  6. This is super cute! I think it helps when it's really obvious that they're different textures, too. Like how your shorts look like a thicker, standard denim, but your shirt is smooth and thin.
