The double denim look is straight-up chic, but it’s not an easy style to pull off. Make sure you have the right shoes and accessories to make your outfit amazing!
This outfit usually consists of a jean jacket and pants/skirt or a dress, with the rule being to make sure both pieces are an equal shade — light to dark — if they do not match perfectly. You also want them to be cut from the same material: 100% cotton for classic, stiff jeans; stretchy cotton for super-comfortable jeans; or mixed fabrics for rugged appeal.
Tops are going to be the easiest to pull off with a double denim outfit. A simple, loose T-shirt is best. If you want to add a top layer, try a button-down shirt or sweater and keep it neutral so it won’t compete with your bottoms. Visually balance the light and dark in your look by matching the color of your shoes and purse with one of your pieces of denim.
Make sure your top is long enough that the bottoms don’t peek out!
Accessories are a must to complete your denim look. The most important is a leather belt that matches your shoes. If you want to be extra fierce, choose a belt with studs.

Make sure both pieces match in style and material. Keep it simple and minimal – denim can be a great style for dressing up one’s entire body. But if you’re going to combine it with other fashion trends, opt for the more conservative option and keep your accessories to a bare minimum. Don’t try to emulate fashion divas by wearing multiple layers of blouses; these types of looks are best reserved for magazines.
How To Look Awesome In Double Denim Look
If you’re like me, you’ve spent countless hours clicking through Tumblr, Pinterest, and Instagram wondering how to do double denim the right way. Naturally, I’m here to tell you that there is no “right” or “wrong” way to wear it. The important thing is that it fits your style and enhances your body shape. With that being said, here are my top 5 tips for looking good in this denim trend.
1. Pick fabrics that flatter your body shape. If you have a small waist, avoid fabrics that are too stretchy, like relaxed jeans and tunics. Instead, opt for slimmer and more form-fitting styles on top (like boyfriend jeans) or double denim bottoms with a high-rise or skinny leg.
2. Invest in a good denim jacket. Denim jackets are the best way to make double denim work for you. It’s always a good idea to invest in quality denim, so you don’t have to worry about it fraying or fading over time.
3. If in doubt, keep it simple. If it takes you more than five minutes to figure out how to style your outfit, you’re probably doing it wrong. Avoid overwhelming your body by keeping the rest of your outfit clean and simple—a solid top or dress with simple accessories will do just fine!
4. Never overdo it. Think of double denim as a solid foundation for your outfit, not the main attraction. This means that you should always avoid patches or crazy embroideries to keep from looking too much like a jean jacket.
5. If you really want to take it up a notch, layer with denim on denim. Double denim is best when it’s layered. It’s also important to make sure that you’re wearing either the same color or a complimentary color underneath your bottom layer of denim (so if you’re wearing white jeans, wear a light shirt underneath). This ensures that your outfit isn’t too matchy-matchy and keeps it from looking like an effort to overdo the trend.
