Trend Alert: How to Wear Denim on Denim (not like Britney and Justin)

by Jennifer Saul


It has been 15 years since Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake debuted their iconic double denim look on the red carpet. That was enough to scare even the most fashionably daring off of the look for several years. Thankfully, when it re-emerged, it took on fresh life and thanks to style icons like Olivia Palmero it has never looked better.

Here are 3 ways to try wearing Denim on Denim:

Suited Up:

Take the Canadian Tuxedo out of the country and into the city with a smart blazer or tailored jacket. Choose a contrasting color or fun print to break up the monochromatic look.

Skirt the Rules:

Chambray button up shirts pair perfectly with denim skirts. Try tucking it in and leaving it mostly unbuttoned to create a deep ‘v’. Or if your skirt is more high-waisted, tie it up and tuck it under to create a crop top that ends right above the top of the skirt.

Layer it:

To bundle up in the colder weather, layer a sweater on top and let the collar peek out the top. Finish the look with a statement necklace and cute booties.
