With another blast from the past, the infamous 90’s ensemble is getting a reboot. The “denim on denim” signature look is once again back in style, and we aren’t mad about it. Yet there is a right and wrong way when it comes to this tricky outfit and rocking it tastefully requires some tips. Lucky for you, we have some inspiration and advice that will help you succeed in this new dawn of denim.
Almost every celebrity today is sporting the denim trend, but how exactly do you pull it off? The first way you can do this is by starting simple; by grabbing just the staples like a pair of jeans and a denim jacket, you can emulate the iconic styles of the stunning Hadids, Kanye or Rihanna. You also have the decision of matching denim or contrasting washes.
If you want to go a little further, you can add some fun, unique pieces like a patchwork denim jacket, a personalized pair of jeans or some chic jewelry to spice up the look.
If you want to really be bold, you can venture out for a full denim jumpsuit or dress. Styling it clean and simple with a cute jean jacket and a pair of big earrings gives you the perfect spring outfit. Remember: when pairing the top and bottoms, if one is big and baggy, the other should compliment it by being small and flattering. You can dress the denim up with heels and a clutch, or dress it down with sneakers and a hat for a street style look.
If you’re not into the complete denim ensemble, try breaking it up with solid colors like black and white, or add another coat to introduce a different fabric and style.
Hopefully this dive into the bold and captivating monochromatic trend will have you dreaming of denim, and ready to try out these looks for yourself!
