Four years ago, when double-denim first came “back” the rule was to make sure your denims had a high contrast. Meaning: If your jeans are dark denim, your shirt must be light denim. These days, there are no rules with denim. You can mix your denims. And you can match your denims. It’s all pretty much whatever works.
Lately, though, I’ve been finding that I love matching my denims as closely as possible. Low contrast denim has a sort of jumpsuit feel without the disrobing fiascos in the restrooms. Who wants that? Not me. Jumpsuits make me claustrophobic. But I do love the look.
This Sunday, we had a family brunch with Coquette and her family. Sunday brunches are always tough. You want to look nice, but you don’t want to try too hard. My answer to “not trying too hard” is always double denim. Double denim is trendy, but casual, and always easy to wear. Especially easy to wear if you’re still trying to get enough coffee in you to be human. (For me, that’s basically any time before noon.)
So my lovelies… are you a denim mixer or a denim matcher?
