Is it a trend that is so wrong, it’s right?

Fashion rules were ment to be broken from the beginning.
After years of shunning denim on denim it became a hype again?
The mixture of denim is a world of infinite possibilities.


 The revival of denim can easily be blamed on the worldwide bloggers and street style, they all came with new styling ideas of how to reinvent the old jeans in your closet, of how to make them fresh again.

Designers took the initiative as well and redefined the fabric. They played with shapes from trim to oversize, colors from bleached to dark even double washed and changed textures from selvedge to power stretch.

What caught my attention is TOM FORD’s approach. The well known designer for his luxurious suits and evening wear is proposing us the denim as the new fabric for formal engagements.

The outfit stays in a faded denim shirt under a suede jacket combined with washed straight cut jeans and a patterned scarf around the neck.

Is this the new definition of elegance? Yes? No? YES!


If you are a “beginner” in denim wear, I recommend you to combine different shades of denim, try a darker denim color for pants and a lighter color for the top. And for the “advance users” I challenge them to wear close washes for jacket and pants and to maybe use a pop of color to break down the denim wall. Use colored or printed shirts/t-shirts and throw some accessories on.


I took this challenge on my own and I mixed with a beige/cognac mix of accessorizes, rolled my jeans and brought an accent of color with a pair of orange socks. For the rebel in you, definitely go for destroyed or destroyed and repaired denims, you will like that too.



OUTFIT: DIESEL Jacket, ABSOLUT JOY T-shirt, SCOTCH&SODA Jeans, DIESEL/GUESS Leather bracelets, POLO RALPH LAUREN Belt, DSQUARED2 Sunglasses, ZARA Scarf, J.LINDEBERG Shoulderbag, RIVER ISLAND Monk shoes.

The trick for the right double denim look stays in the pieces you choose. As long as every denim piece you mix is well structured and fitted on your body you can really make it work!

Feel good, look great
