Even though the "Canadian Tuxedo" is totally acceptable in the fashion world these days, some people still think it's tacky to pair similar shades of denim together. But I say "to hell with that" and I'll do as I please.

I paired a raw edged chambray crop top with some distressed jean bottoms and topped off the outfit with a super soft & comfy knitted sweater for a cold early morning breakfast date. Then I accessorized with a statement necklace, a small leather crossbody bag, and some fun metallic blue booties.

There are so many fun ways to experiment with the double denim trend. Below are some helpful tips to try out this spring!
  • The easiest way to style denim on denim is choosing different shades of denim like a light washed chambray top with a dark washed pair of bottoms. 
  • Fit is also extremely important. I typically stray away from boyfriend jeans when styling denim on denim. I find that skinny jeans pair best with chambray tops. 
  • Don't limit yourself to denim pants and a chambray top. Get creative with denim dresses and a chambray shirt (in a different wash) tied around your waist, chambray tops tucked into a denim pencil skirt, or try pairing a denim vest with some denim cutoff shorts. The possibilities are endless! 
  • If you're going for the matchy match look like me, keep things interesting by pairing pieces with different textures and accessorize strategically.
