Denim on denim is trending for a while now. One might consider it as a fashion risk - and it is, if you do not get it right -, but matching the right shades with the right accessories results in a stunning, effortlessly cool street look evoking the 90s era.
To rock the double denim - or otherwise called Canadian Tuxedo - style, there are some dos and don’ts you have to follow.
Mixing light colours with dark ones is the easiest way that works great. If you do not want to break the rules, do not wear same tones and same wash types, unless you add something that cracks the monotony - a different coloured accessory, for example. And it is important to highlight that denim accessories like bags, hats or shoes are a definite don’t.
On Slowness Founder Pink is wearing a sporty Diesel denim jacket that shares exactly the same tone as her low-waist Marithe et Francois Girbaud jeans. Still, the look does not get exaggerated due to the colourful details that break the monocracy of denim in a fresh, playful way.
Lighter colours result in a more casual style. To avoid being too sporty - and be sporty chic instead -, Pink put on her yellow statement heels and wore a pair of vivid orange socks with them. A couple of years ago, people would have rewarded this bold move with strange glances, but now it is the descriptive mark of a true fashionista - and fashionistas also keep an eye on details: have you seen the inside of the Diesel jacket matching perfectly with the socks?
Add a belt to your outfit. Pink’s red one works as a dividing line between the neutral top and the two denim pieces. If you are wearing boots, a studded belt would give a bit of Western feeling to the look - but do not overdo it, as the result might resemble to a lost cowboy movie character.
Add the finishing touch with jewellery that does not divert attention from your harmonising DoD outfit. A simple yet smart pair of earrings - like Crowned Feathers by Mirit Weinstock - and a thin choker with matching pendant can be the cherry on top: they accentuate a feminine side without being the focus point.
