Would You Wear: Denim On Denim?

Oh yes, the Texas Tuxedo. It’s really in this season. I saw more denim on denim crawling around Lincoln Center this Fashion Week than I saw street style photographers and let me tell you something, that is impressive.

At this point it seems the double denim has trickled down far enough that it’s no longer an eye-batter, though there was a time–only just recently!–when the thought of breaking the cardinal denim rule (only one piece at a time!) seemed unfathomable. Like wearing white after Labor Day or brown shoes with a black belt or dark lips with statement eyes. I mean, these are things you just don’t do.

Only but now you can.

After the jump, some of my favorite denim layering from around the web. Embrace those denims! Let them co-mingle!

    Double denim is the obvious choice for a busy mom. It's comfortable, can be dark enough to hide your kid's food smears, and cleans up in the washing machine real easy like. A neon belt is a great way to break up double denim of the same shade. I kind of think Emily looks like Johnny Cash here, and I kind of think that's rad.

    Ready for a date, ready for the grocery store, ready for whatever. Those gold rimmed aviators lend just the right amount of bad-ass to this otherwise sweet look.

    I like how this outfit screams "going to a meeting" while at the same time it's almost entirely composed of the office's number one no-no: denim. It also reminds me there is nearly nothing a great blazer can't class up. Girl looks good!

    When done right the double denim can be really lengthening.

    Sometimes you just want to look like a free-spirit garage band hippy. Opt for worn denim in a light rinse. You can't lose.
