Denim on denim.
Glamour says it’s all good.
I say, are you sure Galmour?
Because I distinctly recall it not really being that awesome.
And now, I have this denim jacket that I pretty much want to wear with every single thing I own, and I’ve got my fingers and toes double crossed that Glamour knows what they’re talking about on this one (because I have to admit, at least when it comes to those of us of a certain age and, um, size, they are not only wrong, they are gross). Point is, I need to know if it’s okay to rock it to my heart’s desire (which is always) or not.
It already makes an appearance when I want to downgrade a dress from office to
But, can I throw it on with my dark wash skinnies too? Are there rules about matching the denim colors? Is it only okay if I wear it with jeans that are colored (like an actual color, not hi-I’m-jeans colored)?! Why do they have to keep cancelling out hard fast fashion rules I learned never to break in the 90s?!
Because I am seriously too lazy and entirely too hot to don a jean suit and then run back and forth as I set the timer and the autofocus and what not so you can see pictures of me for our discussion, we are going to just talk about how it looks on other people, m’kay?!
So, this? I’m pretty sure we’re all in agreement with the fact that this is wrong. On a number of levels…
Denim on denim can be bad. Frightening even.
I think it’s the denim hat. But, it could be the denim purse or the denim blazer, or, is that like some sort of freaky denim muscle shirt he’s rocking?
However you break it on down, this is a denim on denim on Justin on Britney fail.
This works, no?
This looks adorable.
It doesn’t look hot, or stuffy, or 90s.
She looks cool, and chic, and now. The glasses sorta do it for me, but the shoulder to mid thigh denim coverage just works for her too.
I can’t pull off a short that short or a stance that nonchalant. But, how about this?
This I’m pretty sure I can do without an excess of awkwardness or discomfort thanks, in large part, to the I heart tacos bag.
But what about this?
This is where I start to get confused on the matter. It’s where the do-not-cross-less-you-look-like-Justin-and-Britney-line starts to blur for me.
Am I one denim cowboy hat away from going there? Or is this still within the confines of looking laid back for a weekend away?!
Is it a go if I promise not to add a denim necktie or a blinged out denim fanny pack?
And, if I swear that I won’t go back to this (I’m wearing a crotch snapped bodysuit in this photo also, if you must know)…
It is rare that I seek help in finding suitable attire; I’ve been down that road before courtesy of one slightly embarrassing reality show appearance, but I’d really love some thoughts on this one.
You know, so I can rock my jean jacket until I wear holes in the armpits and it starts to disintegrate.
