Gone are the days when denim was only confined to jeans and jackets. It has become one of the top trending styles in the world of fashion. Wear denim the way you want in dresses, accessories, skirts, and even shoes to get the look. Our favourite is clearly the denim dress which can be paired with heels and long coats. Denim dresses can make one look super casual or a little bit more stylish, and they have that magic of olden days to them while still feeling more modern. We warn you not to overdo it and end up in a situation similar to the Justin Timberlake/Britney Spears debacle of 2001.
Also, the double-denim trend often referred to as a Canadian tuxedo, feels distinctively wrong fashion-wise. So, try to not to follow this style blindly.
With that in mind, here are a few tips to flaunt the denim look with confidence and élan.
- Experiment with colors
Pair your denim pants, jackets or shirts with different colors. One can start out by pairing different shades of denim together. Go for white jeans and a blue denim jacket, or black jeans and a white shirt. You can never go wrong with this style.
- Say no to denim accessories
Keep the jeans confined to your clothing and avoid denim shoes, a denim hat, denim handbag, or any other accessory.
- Try to Use denim shades to flatter or hide body parts
As a general rule, lighter shades of denim draw attention to the body parts they cover, while darker washes create a slimming effect. Women can opt to go for dark denim jeans with a lighter denim top or jacket to get that perfect slim look.
- Do not go for a denim outfit that’s all the same weight or wash
Avoid choosing the same wash, weight or shade when wearing denims. This will make you look tacky.
- Choose the Distress look
Don’t shy away from putting on distressed denim (ripped jean shorts or jeans) with a stylish top or a shirt to enhance your look. Don’t be afraid to rip away.
- Do not look to Westerns for inspiration
Wear what you are comfortable in, rather than looking like a caricature. Try not to copy the dressing style of cowboys that includes accessories like cowboy boots, cowboy hats, bolo ties, and Western belts.
- Accentuate your double denim look
With a double denim look, one can go with statement heels, a tuxedo blazer, or fabulous red lips.
So, all you stylish people out there go for the chic denim look and accessorize it to give your best shot.
