If I did a pool on fashion faux pas, I'm pretty sure the top few would be wearing socks with sandals, bumbags and of course double denim. But NO why oh why is double denim considered such a sin in the everyday world? The fashion industry has adopted this trend for years and with exceptionally creative individuals like John Jarrett, Galih Richardson & Esham Kali pioneering double-denim I'm hoping that it will become more of a statement rather than a question. Oh and PS, you need to follow these guys and their collective We Are Outlanders.
When you're a novice at styling an outfit full of denim, it is best to stick to two different tones for the top half and the bottom half, such as the way I have styled myself in this look. The easiest is to use blue and black denim, a perfect and simple combination in my eyes. The great thing about buying the denim jacket that I have used in this post is that it has a autumnal tan contrast collar, taking the edge off the fact that you are wearing double-denim whilst drawing the eye on the small detailed touches. It is currently on sale at ASOS for only £50 and all sizes are still in-stock.
Once you have mastered the basics, then it is time to start experimenting with different denim clothing and washes. For inspiration, look no further than Instagram and here are my favourites from the aforementioned trio of denim genious's.
