Denim is a timeless trend that will never die. But double denim, also known as the Texan Tuxedo, is generally regarded to be one of the trickiest & most controversial trends to pull off.
To do or not to do? That is the question. And it's a question that arises time and time again in the fashion world. What's my take on it? As with all things fashion, I say if you like it & you feel good in it, wear it. Simples!
Double denim can be a great low-key look for the weekend. I bought this unusual denim shirt last Summer from The Raw Denim Bar. It is by New York based Designers Charley 5.0 and I had never seen a denim shirt quite like it before; the cut-out shoulder detail really makes it stand out. I have paired it here with my favourite denim shorts (I absolutely LIVE in these!) & a colourful, vintage Levi leather belt for a simple, Summer look.
The boots are by Ash & are dead ringers for the coveted Isabel Marant 'Dicker' boots that are virtually impossible to buy (I'll get a pair one day though; I'm UK size 3, in case the almighty Fashion Gods are reading this!!). I may be breaking a major fashion rule here with my denim on denim combo, but rules are made to be broken! Right? Right.
