Last Friday was a very important day. It marked the 15th year anniversary of the time when JT (Justin Timberlake) and Britney Spears rocked their horrific all-denim get-ups for the whole world to see. And no one ever forgot about it.
I despise these looks with a strong passion. The all-denim is fine but each look is all one shade…which is a big no-no. There’s also not a lot of variation in texture. Despite Britney’s dress being made of patchwork (in an effort to add variety), it comes off more as clownish than creative.
Can we also talk about her denim bag as well? Oh heck, no! The accessories in both ensembles in general is just one big stinkin’ miss. The necklaces, belt chains, and sunglasses are very much a characteristic of their time: blingy, flashy and unclassy.
But although these looks are awful, denim can be worn in the right way without missing the mark.
Allergic to Vanilla shows us that multiple types of denim can be worn together at once to create a playful, unique and versatile look.
First, I love how she mixed different shades of blue together in this look. She is loudly embracing her love of denim without being too matchy. The varying shades and tones keep my eye moving up and down the look.
I don’t think anyone could ever go wrong with a denim jacket. The style of this one in comparison to the length of the top underneath is another detail that this fashionista clearly executed well. Again, the different lengths keep my eye moving around the outfit.
And last but not least, those caramel booties are to die for! Their warm rustic, fall, and winter feel is definitely a soft – yet casual and practical touch that allows this look to be appropriate for work or a day outing. AND, the bag matches too! 🙂
Actress Miranda Kerr is also rocking denim-on-denim with varying blue shades and types of jean fabric.
This look is simple and classic. A simple chambray or denim button-up always looks classy, with or without a necklace and tucked into pants.
But what I love most about this look is the black leather bag. It effectively breaks up the denim textures of the look and provides a place for an eye to rest.
What are your thoughts on denim-on-denim, fashionistas?
