Jean on jean – Denim on Denim: It’s definitely a sticky topic. When done correctly, it looks amazing—but with one common mistake and you’re destined to look like one giant blob. Thankfully, we’re spilling our secrets on Do’s and Don’t’s for when it comes to style the much desired double denim outfit. I’ve curated this double denim look in partnership with EXPRESS to show you guys how you can improve your double denim selections from here on out.

How to Style Double Denim
  1. DO: Use different colors

Before trying to master doubling up on the same denim color, begin with playing with contrasting colors of top vs bottoms, for instance, a white pair of jeans with a blue denim jacket.

  1. DON’T: Use same color accessories as your denim

When selecting your accessories look for contrasting colors that way the denim isn’t too overpowering. Stay away from using double blue denim and blue accessories for instance, instead try any other color accessory such as white or black.

  1. DO: Use Distressed or Ripped Denim

Using ripped jeans, denim shorts or denim jackets go really good together especially when doubling up on denim in the same color.

  1. DON’T: Use a denim outfit that has the same wash or color.

You may want to stay away from being to matchy when pairing a double denim look. Always keep things contrasting.

  1. DO: Find contrast in blue jeans

Make sure that you select different tones/washes of blue when pairing the top vs bottom. This by far is the most important rule when pairing a double blue jean outfit. Always keep this rule in mind and feel free to play with a darker tone of jeans vs denim shirts or jackets and vice versa.

Notice in my EXPRESS outfit I selected the denim shirt to be much lighter than that of the bottom. I went with a stretch skinny fit on the jeans with a slim fit denim shirt. I kept my accesories neutral in silver and black to not take away but add  personality to my outfit.
