Mastering the denim on denim look is definitely not an easy conquer. In a way, it doesn’t make much sense. And let’s be honest…it is a frightening thought that you may end up looking like Britney Spears at the 2001 MTV Music Awards.

After a long week, Happy Hour was a must one afternoon.  Wanting to wear something fun but a little different from everything else in my closet, I tried the easiest version on the “denim on denim” concept. Simply… lighter denim on top of darker denim.  Added a few colorful accessories, bright lipstick and done.
Next thing on my mind was what drink to order during happy hour.

A few tips on wearing denim on denim…

Stay away from wearing denim on denim AND wearing denim accessories. If you do that it is a promise that you will look like Britney Spears in 2001.

Try adding a heel or wedge to your denim on denim style. It gives your outfit a put together look. Or if you are a flats person, try a bright colored flat that will grab attention.

Start with a lighter denim and then a darker denim either on bottom or top. If you feel like you have mastered this look, go for slightly similar denims. Mix and match similar shades by adding texture, like a cropped distressed denim skinny jean and sleeveless denim top.
