Denim is many things. A French fact and American icon. Trendsetting and timeless. But mostly an uncomplicated beauty in a complex world. Denim's versatility maintains its permanence our hearts and wardrobes. This autumn we're taking cues from style icons Rihanna and Tracee Ellis Ross who aren't afraid to switch it up when it comes to their look. Both women are fans of the Canadian tuxedo and step out in the uniform like only they can. Best of all, outfit combos can be just as easily dressed up with heels or kept casual in flats or sneakers. Take a dive into the denim on denim trend with four outfit ideas that are perfect all season long.
During cooler weather oversized denim serves as both a barrier between you and the elements and an opportunity to layer underneath. Classics like a black turtleneck or cropped white tee serve as a neutral canvas to play with silhouettes. When draped well, denim's firm texture takes on an editorial level of styling. Figure defining elements such as Riri's belted waist keep the look fashionable and not frumpy.
As a general rule either play with perfectly paired pieces or embrace the contrast. Both options save you from the cringe that accompanies an outfit thats close in wash but falls just short of looking cohesive. Take notes from Poze Dark and Poze Light. Contrasting washes have the added benefit of wearability as separates while being statement making together.
Denim patchwork is truly a stand alone element. Why choose between washes when you don't have to. One piece that pulls double duty is the Poze Light Reversible Bucket Hat. Adding in additional washes runs the risk of overkill. Keep things simple by letting the patchwork take center stage and it won't appear busy.
Distressed denim is the perfect injection of casual grunge into your closet. Details don't have to be distracting. Tracee's denim has simple file marks down the length of her pants then cuffs right above the ankle, keeping her denim fun and modern. Swap trousers for a denim skirt if you're the type to wear shorter hemlines until they're no longer weather permitting.
