And not only am I going there….
but by the end of this post,
I firmly believe at least SOME of YOU are going to be convinced to go with me!
Where are we going you ask?
To a world where DENIM ON DENIM is not frowned upon, it’s actually COOL and CURRENT!
My first step towards making you believe that Denim on Denim is cool was
putting together this collage.
PRETTY FREAKING CONVINCING, RIGHT?
Study it, and tell me you don’t want to be one of these girls.
If done right, denim on denim is totally fashionable, and I think they’ve proven that!
So, now that I’ve proven the cool factor of denim on denim, I thought I should also discuss some guidelines/rules. I took the liberty to make a little graphic for what I consider to be some of the helpful hints needed to successfully pull off a denim on denim look.
Please read the graphic below.
Take it all in young grasshoper.

So……..I took my own advice….AND I followed the lead of the images I’d pinned on Pinterest….
and I created a denim on denim look.
And Guess What?!?
I loved it!
AND…it would also look great with colored jeans and white jeans!
This is a great shirt. Click HERE.
If you want to try the look for yourself, you’re in luck!
I put together the look with current pieces!
light chambray shirt HERE (comes in regular and petite)
crystal venus fly trap necklace HERE or bauble bar crystal necklace HERE
leopard belt HERE / dark skinny jeans HERE / mandarin moccasins HERE
renegade spiky bracelet HERE / eden bracelet HERE / mk siilver watch HERE
I really like the shirt in the above collage, but if you want some denim shirt options, I’m your girl.
If you don’t have a denim shirt that you absolutely LOVE, shame on you.
I promise you will wear the heck out of it.
a) Nordstrom option HERE (same that I’m holding above)
And then one of my loyal readers (Shout Out Sarah!) e-mailed me just yesterday asking about pairing the MUST HAVE denim jacket with jeans.
And that inspired me to look for the picture below (an outfit I created sometime last year) so she could see how to pull of that look!
MUST HAVE JACKET found HERE. Kimberly Necklace found HERE.
Similar jeans found HERE. Nude patent flats found HERE.
Great white v-neck found HERE .
And here’s a different look with a denim shirt.
Still denim on denim. But colored denim, which seems a lot less scary.
Here’s the inspiration picture.
If you’re not ready to do full on denim on denim yet, this is a way to ease into it!
If you’re looking for a darker denim, this Paige denim shirt HERE is 35% off.
Don’t even try to argue that Olivia doesn’t look totally cool and chic.
I wish we could see her shoes, but even without a shoe shot, I LOVE the look.
The only “rule” she’s following is light denim on top, dark denim on bottom.
And Still…LOVE LOVE LOVE the look.
Well done Ms. Palermo.
So, WHOSE COMING WITH ME to DENIM ON DENIM TOWN?!?
I’m dying to know!
