double dippin‘ denim
We’ve all done things in the past that we aren’t proud of–things that we wish we could erase from our memories forever. I, for example, cringe everytime I see a picture of my high school years when wearing hair elastics to match your Baby Phat sneakers and Nike dunks was the business. Not so much? Maybe that was just me.
One fashion crime that stands out in my mind in particular, however, is one my mother was particularly guilty of (and still is, might I add)–double denim. You know, where you wear different shades of denim from head to toe? *cringe*
Fashionistas left and right are raving about this trend which is said to be one of this season’s most popular. And judging by the Spring ’10 shows, designers like Chloé, Mulberry, Ralph Lauren, D&G, and Twenty8Twelve have a lot to do with it.
So next time you think twice before throwing on your denim jacket with your favorite distressed jeans, leave it on! Step outside your comfort zone and experiment. Besides, who made that stupid ‘rule’ up anyway?!
much love, SO
