How to wear denim on denim

Denim on denim is a cool casual look. It's fresh, safe and I absolutely love it! Like a lot of people, I prefer dark wash denim because it's very slimming and goes with everything. Light wash denim might not always be flattering or slimming, but it has a clean fresh look to it, which I like. 

When wearing denim on denim, it's best to wear two different shades, if not, the outfit would seem less interesting. With two different shades of denim, the entire look is broken and each denim piece stands out.

In addition, if you're uncomfortable about wearing a certain shade of denim because it isn't flattering, combining different shades allows you to get away with wearing an unflattering one. All you need to do is combine it with your preferred shade.


In today's post, I chose to wear a dark denim skirt because it flatters my full thighs.
