Things have changed. These days pulling on your best jeans and the beat-up trucker jacket isn’t just okay, it’s encouraged as long as you follow the rules.
WEAR A DIFFERENT SHADE OF DENIM ON TOP AND BOTTOM
The contrast between shirt and pants offers dimension and ensures your look is more contemporary, less adult one-piece. Try a pair of black jeans and a light wash distressed denim jacket, or pair lighter denim with a navy chambray button-up. Feeling colorful? A pair of fall-friendly jeans in olive or burgundy look sharp with a dark denim western button-down.
BALANCE YOUR TOP AND BOTTOM FITS
While balancing your colors, also consider balancing fits. If your shirt or jacket is a looser style, opt for skinny or straight-fit pants. Conversely, if you prefer looser pants, go for a more fitted denim topper. Full baggy or skintight can distort your shape and be a bit uncomfortable.
TRY THESE DENIM-ON-DENIM COMBINATIONS:
FINISH YOUR LOOK WITH A COORDINATED BELT & SHOES
If you’re a more casual, everyday gent, pair a denim-on-denim ensemble with your favorite fashion sneakers or slip-on styles. Feeling more fashion-forward? A pair of dark taupe Chukkas or Chelsea boots and a coordinating belt is easy way to add extra style points. When done right, denim-on-denim is the epitome of cool and contemporary, so try out these tips and make denim a do in your closet this season.
