Tricky Trend: Denim + Denim

Now, the idea of wearing denim on top and denim on the bottom has been around for a couple of years. The way to avoid looking like your mother circa 1976? Tailoring, tone and fabric.

I find that denim shirts bulk me out so I have cheated slightly. The shirt I'm wearing is actually cotton voile. As it's dyed a rich shade of indigo, it gives the appearance of denim or chambray but is softer and more tailored. The following pictures show a very casual weekend look, but I also plan to style this baby up with:

- My black Trenery skinny jeans and black Sambag ballet flats.
- My Lonely Hearts black and white cotton pants with Superga sneakers.
- My black Zara shorts, a white tank and Superga sneakers.
