Double Denim Days

Double denim- a trend so WRONG its RIGHT. And trust me, this look is going nowhere. The Canadian Tuxedo is consistently seen on off-duty celebrities, and breezy LA babes. It is a high risk trend (no one wants to look like the denim disaster that is Britney + Justin circa 2001.) Here's my advice when dressing in full denim.  
1) Keep it simple. By embracing the monochromatic, the look will feel fresh and cool. Don't start to pile on too many trends onto double denim. It'll lose that effortlessly feel, and looks disoriented and clunky. 
2) Try out different shades of denim that compliment each other. Honor the colors of the fabric and use it as a source of inspiration. Notice textures and if the denim is distressed. I like pairing this ultra distressed high-waisted jean with a crisp light blue chambray. The tones are contrasting so the pieces feel separate enough- simply break up the denim.  
3) Cuts and silhouettes of denim can completely change the look. Choose your pants or skirt wisely. I love these rolled ankle-grazers with a low block heel for spring. Some of my other favorites include a bold bell-bottom, a distressed mini-skirt and a sharp kick flare. 
4) Tell your look's story through the accessories. Double denim can be elevated depending on the add-ons. I wanted this spring-look to feel easy and feminine and natural. This look is an every-day work look for me. Whether running errands, shooting photos, or having a coffee date- the accessories help embrace my casual spring style. 
5) Find your confidence. Whenever trying out a trend, you gotta find that extra little confidence. So rock the denim with a killer pair a heels, or that statement purse that makes your feel extra. Don't fear a fashion faux pas- finding your uniqueness in this look takes it to the next level.
