Denim on Denim

I’ve been a bit leery to try the denim on denim trend, even though I’ve seen other people pull it off. Something in my psyche tells me it’s wrong. I sort of cheated in my first attempt at denim on denim by putting a bright sweater over my polka dot chambray top. I decided it still counted because I would wear the outfit without the sweater if I got too hot. Since the top is a significantly different shade of blue and has a pattern, I think it works. I should’ve taken a photo without the sweater so you can help me decide if it looks great or if I’m crazy. Do you denim + denim?

  1. Looks great with the sweater! But I think it would work equally well without because the printed top doesn’t really look like denim. Incidentally, my advisor wears denim+denim about once a week but I wouldn’t call it “pulling it off….” πŸ™‚

  2. Cute combo, Thanks so much for dropping by my blog and you know what you’ll be shocked when i say those pumps are supper comfortable πŸ™‚ .
