Wearing Denim-on-Denim



Hi everyone! I'm bringing in the weekend with my first denim-on-denim look. Yes, you read that right, my first! So be easy on me:-).

Personally I've always been more drawn to denim-on-denim looks that are styled with contrasting washes. I've seen many fashion bloggers go the other route and match exact washes very well. I definitely would like to try that one day, but for this particular look I wanted to mix my washes. I split up the washes by wearing darker denim on the bottom and medium chambray on top. 





I layered with a statement leopard print coat to stand out against the denim-on-denim. I think a statement coat serves as a great way to help break up the look up even further. You can incorporate any statement coat that represents your style best! The one I'm currently wearing is from LOFT and I recently got it on sale for $120. Unfortunately, it's sold out online, but you might be able to find it in-store still:-).

To finish off the look I added a metallic silver clutch, burgundy/black cat eye sunglasses, and black and white mid pumps, for a sleek, modern look. 







Clutch: Nine West (similar) | Denim Shirt: (similar, similar) | Sunglasses: In store only (similar) | Jeans: Jessica Simpson (buy here)| Heels: Nine West (similar, similar)| Coat: Loft (similar, similar)  

What do you all think about denim-on-denim looks? Would you rock it? I know many people are afraid to try it. However, I think if done right it can look really chic, fresh, and trendy.

I'm definitely looking forward to trying more denim-on-denim looks in the future for you all. 

Have a great weekend everyone!

Stay blissful!:-)

  2. Normally I try to stay away from denim-on-denim because I know it doesn't really look good on me, but I like the way you paired it with printed jacket, I think it looks very put together!
