The New Look Denim Low Down

Double denim. A controversial fashion choice. Essentially it's a bit like marmite. You either love it or you darn right hate it. I fall in the former category, if you hadn't already guessed by today's blog post. As denim forms such a fundamental part of my capsule wardrobe, it seems inevitable at some point that I would double up on my favourite basics. The only tip I would give is to vary the shades when doubling up on your denim. I love the raw edge frayed details on both these jeans and denim jacket and think it's the little things like this that give an outfit a bit of character. With the focus being  mainly on this double denim ensemble, I opted for a clean white linen shirt which has been my go to as of late. It's soft texture and instant wearability had me sold and I find myself reaching for it on one too many occasions.

Now onto the Girlfriend Jeans. You may have seen me rave about these in my last blog post but I really cannot praise these jeans enough. They are a great alternative to your classic skinny jean and they have a relaxed fit without being too baggy or unflattering. As I opted to pair these jeans with a bomber jacket, I wanted to dress this look up slightly which I have done with these amazing strappy heels.  Look at that buckle detail! I think these shoes look so premium, wouldn't you agree? With that said, they definitely have a purse friendly price tag. Both these looks are how I would style my denim on an everyday basis. I hope this post has given you some inspiration on how to rework your most basic denim pieces or even invest in a few key pieces for spring/summer. As always, I would love to know which look is your favourite? Let's hope your not sick of the sight of denim after this.
