5 Tips for Wearing Denim on Denim

How to Wear Denim on Denim

Top: A New Day | Jeans: Unpublished (similar)| Shoes: Merona | Bag: Madewell | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban

It took me a while to figure out how to wear denim on denim. As a jeans lover and someone obsessed with all things denim, I was determined to figure out how to sport this Americana look. As soon as I heard that head-to-toe denim was trending for fall, I jumped right on it. I searched high and low for the perfect denim pieces to style together and this is what I came up with! I chose a light wash chambray top tucked into dark wash skinny jeans.

Favorite Fall Flannel

Flannel: J Crew / Denim: A Gold E / Scarf: Forever 21 / Boots: Frye / Bag: Street Level / Sunglasses: Ray Ban

Plaid button-ups are a staple in my closet and living in New England gives me plenty of opportunities to style them. With new seasons come new patterns at J. Crew and I’m always excited to see what they have to offer. This flannel shirt stood out with its buffalo-check plaid and gorgeous emerald green color. It’s the perfect lightweight flannel for fall.  I love the new cut, which seems to be shorter and a bit more fitted than the standard “Boy Shirt”, but equally as comfy. I highly recommend!

I recently purchased this bag from Nordstrom. It’s a reversal faux leather tote by BP that looks and feels like real leather. It comes in 8 different color combinations – I chose the cognac/black combo.  Typically with reversible bags, one side looks significantly superior to the other. That’s not the case with this tote. It’s easily reversible and both options look amazing. One purchase, two bags – no complaints here! The size is also perfect, not too big, not too small. I will definitely be purchasing another one! Maybe the navy/taupe combo? What’s your favorite??

Sweater: All Saints / Denim: J Brand / Boots: Frye / Bag: Vintage Chanel / Sunglasses: Ray Ban

I picked up this amazing cardigan from All Saints during my last shopping excursion in Boston. I love the layers and the unique, asymmetrical cut. It’s also super comfortable. I have a hard time finding wool sweaters that are cozy and don’t irritate my skin. This draped merino sweater is made from the softest wool contrasted with cotton for a super soft feel. There is a small zipper on the shoulder, allowing you to wear the top closed (as pictured) or open. I love sweaters that offer versatility and multiple styling options. It comes in two colors – Black and Misty Marl (pictured). I chose the light neutral color because I wanted to style it with white and other neutrals. People often think dressing for fall means darker, deeper colors but I like to carry neutral colors from season to season. I also don’t follow the “no white after labor day” rule, because white denim is one of my favorite closet staples and it would be a shame to wear it only three months of the year.
