3 Ways to Rock Denim-on-Denim

Share It:

You're in bed, wearing sweats, with a cup of coffee (or is that wine?), and you've been scrolling through Pinterest for the past few hours. Or days. This happens to me a lot - I'm wasting away my day (life) on Pinterest, and keep stumbling upon these perfect outfits on perfect models that I could never, EVER try at home. We've all been there, so I'm here to help.

In case you haven't noticed, denim on denim is a thing again. Before you freak out, remember to think Kourtney Kardashian instead of old-school Britney and Justin. Kourtney happens to be a fashion inspiration to me, and she's been spotted rocking this casual trend more than once. I pulled a few ideas from Pinterest to copycat - and here's the finished product.

I put two looks together with the same top and jeans - the first one with suede heels and statement earrings to feel a little more glam, and the second with a red scarf and booties that was a little more laid back.

If you want to pull off the "joutfit" (jeans outfit), there are a few important things to remember.

  1. Make sure your jeans and top are different washes of denim. Wearing the same shade will create the illusion that you are wearing a long, jeans romper, which probably isn't your best look.
  2. If you're intimidated by wearing all denim, put on a belt - either one with a larger buckle or in a bright color. Half-tuck your shirt into the belt to break up your outfit a little bit.
  3. Jazz up your outfit with a pair of colorful booties or a statement necklace. Without fun, girly accessories, I tend to think that denim on denim can easily look too casual and maybe a little bit farmer-ish.

Sound easy? I think so! Go ahead and take a risk...

  1. What about the Groutfit? That's my fave, but it needs some jazzy accents. Who is your photographer, might I ask?
