Wear Denim

Ways to Wear Denim-on-Denim

Wearing denim with denim was a no-no for so long that putting pieces together can still have a taste of the forbidden. Now, the combo is a total Do in our books, and can range from the super casual to something much more polished. For someone just starting to mix, consider these expert tips from Madewell's Head of Design, Somsack Sikhounmuong. "The best head-to-toe denim look is when the washes and the tones are close or the same," he explained. An easy outfit idea? "A light chambray shirt with a faded skinny jean," he offered up.

Avoid the biggest denim-on-denim pitfall by skipping anything too costume-y. "I'm always a big proponent of context and juxtaposition," says Sikhounmuong. "A whole denim look with sandals or heels is going to be much more interesting than a cowboy boot."

If you want to shake up things in the double denim department, mix in white denim to feel extra summery or add darker washes to create something more professional. "A black rinse bottom, denim shirt, and blazer with black flats is a cool and unexpected, but refined, option," offers the designer. For even more outfit ideas, see how everyone from Rihanna to Emma Stone rocks denim-on-denim style.

Behati Prinsloo, with inky jeans and a tailored trench, is a perfect example of pulled-together double denim.

Denim-on-denim doesn't have to just involve jeans: Emma Stone and Chrissy Teigen are both perfect examples of teaming cutoffs with a denim shirt.

Jean skirts are set to have a comeback (especially the to-the-knee length). Like your regular skinnies they'll match with almost anything, but look especially rad done the Rihanna way.

For a polished, yet casual travel outfit try black and blue denims, plus laid-back accessories, à la Gisele.
