Denim is one of my all-time favourite fabrics, I wear some element of it in each outfit. Therefore I thought what better way to reintroduce myself to my little blog after three months (sorry about that, btw) than to talk about the fabric that makes the world go around.
It's funny how not so long ago double denim was almost taboo, if you saw someone wearing it they were branded a 'soccer mom'. Now however, street style queens the world over choose to rock the look on the daily. You can do denim in so many different ways, it's just so handy.
I wont get in to the topic of jeans too much in this post as I think everyone chooses for themselves what style and fit suits them best. I want to talk more about how to wear denim in other ways. Check out how some of the girls above have styled themselves... v stylish 'soccer moms'.
Here are some pieces from ASOS and River Island that are perfect for taking denim to the next level in your wardrobe. There is so much more to life than Skinny Jeans!
The first 2 pieces are from ASOS and I think they would look fab styled together with the shirt under the pinafore. It's a very Alexa Chung inspired look and I think it would suit most body types. For Irish weather pop a pair of black tights and cute ankle boots (like these) on to keep cosy and on trend. My top tip for any double denim look, especially one like this is to make sure that the shades of denim are completely different. You don't want it to look like you tried and failed to get a perfectly matching colour so make sure you don a dark wash in one piece and a light wash in the other.
As for the River Island pieces; this culottes and t-shirt look will be comfortable and wearable. You can dress it up or down. I would steer clear of too many accessories with this look as it could go from 'fab' to 'too much' quite quickly. For an evening look try a point toe heel, either a cool tan, or pop of colour like red or orange would work. Don't be afraid of animal print either (perhaps these leopard courts). A flat clutch bag (like this one) will finish off your evening look perfectly. For during the day go for a pair of clean cut, white trainers (check these out) and a cute tote bag (shop one here).
