Wow, there hasn’t been an outfit post for so long. I just checked and the last whole outfit I shot was before Christmas. But finally I’m back with a look that is one of my all-time favorites. When I decided to shift the focus of my blog from fashion to traveling I told you, that I won’t give up writing about style, I simply will highlight other topics. During the last month since Theri’s Wardrobe had its relaunch many things changed. People come up to me telling me how much they love my new design and focus and that the article from last week was great. This rarely happened to me when I only focused on fashion because that’s not everything to me but traveling is and people sense this kind of love in my writing. But still fashion is an important part of my life, which I never wanna miss and blogging about it opened doors for me I never had thought of pushing through before. The thing is I now want to stick to the trends and styles that are really part of my life and not just for the next few months. One of these trends is definitely Double Denim.
Somehow this style never needed to make a comeback or relaunch because it has always been around with all its power. There may be many Worst of the 80s trends out there but Double Denim ain’t no one of them.
But how to style double denim right? What I always keep in mind when wearing double denim is that the two fabrics should have a significantly different shade of blue and maybe even a different feeling. For instance my denim jacket is rather stiff and washed out, while the button front skirt is made out of a very soft fabric is in a bold blue color. Moreover I wouldn’t go for high heels when wearing double denim – looks like you are putting to much effort in your styling. I’d rather enjoy the comfort of sneakers or laced up slippers – they add a modern days twist to the outfit which is often much appreciate when sporting a retro look like this.
Another trick when styling double denim is to never wear denim on denim. This means I always keep my hands of pairing a denim shirt with a denim jacket – simply try to avoid the uni-color trap. Of course one can go for jeans and a nice denim shirt but two top garments of the same fabric is way to much. I usually wear this trend with a jacket and bottoms of any kind – wether it’s a skirt of jeans – but the top (in-between) needs to be of a different style, like this striped basic top with a slightly oversized cut.
Now it’s your turn: How would you wear double denim? Or do you avoid this all-time trend? I would love to hear your thought in the comments!
