The Resurrection of Double Denim

Winter Fashion Blog- ETSU Mass Media Production 

First things first- WHO KNEW? Double denim (the act of wearing two items made of denim at the same time, ie: jeans and a jean jacket) has long been an embarrassing fashion mistake. But now, it’s in. And I’m so glad, because jean jackets are a sexy alternative to the usual North Face or Patagonia.

And since double denim is officially back and everywhere this winter, I figured I would share some wisdom I have picked up about the look.

So, here a few rules to follow if you want to rock this cool look:

  1. Make sure to mix your dark and light denims. Aka: You don’t want to have the same color denim on the top and on the bottom
  2. Fitted double denim is always preferable over baggy double denim.
  3. In general, the material/texture should vary, even if only slightly.

Here’s me rocking the double denim look-



Jacket- Target

So with this said, if you don’t have one, get yourself a good jean jacket. Goodwill and thrift stores have awesome and cheap options. Or if you’re feeling like blowing a little bit more cash, Target has some good ones. 

I wish you all good luck in your endeavors, involving denim, and everything else.
