How-to Wear Double Denim for Day or Night

As I've been thinking about what I'll be putting in my Winter Capsule starting in January, one item that's a no-brainer for me is my chambray shirt. I was trying to figure out why I love that shirt so much, and why I wear it over and over again without getting tired of it. I think I figured it out; it literally is like the "jeans" of tops. I say literally because, well, it's denim, but it's also equally versatile as my favorite pair of jeans. Put the two together, and you've got the ultimate outfit blank slate, perfect for day or night.



For an easy daytime look, I add a colorful scarf and ankle boots to the double-denim canvas. The scarf makes me feel put-together and gives the illusion that I took time putting this together. Scarves are great for that.

For a double-denim look that's a little dressier, I put on my snakeskin flats, a bold necklace, and a bright red bag. This look is perfect for a casual date night out.

  5. I love both looks! I am like you, I think I'd go for lighter denim on top and darker on the bottom if I were to do a double denim look. Looks great!
