Wearing denim on denim has been a big trend for a couple of seasons now. What used to be a major fashion don’t is sweeping the runways, and even celebrities are getting in on the debatable trend.
Both Alexa Chung and Reese Witherspoon wore an oversized denim shirt–check out a great chambray shirt you can wear now and later–with a darker shade of jeans. Jessica Alba also wore mismatched shades of denim, and broke up the outfit with a blue t-shirt and a bright scarf. I think the trend is do-able, but if you don’t want to take the plunge, check out four denim pieces you don’t have to wear together:
An oversized chambray shirt like this Old Navy Women’s Boyfriend Shirt ($26.50) looks modern with khaki shorts, or even a floral skirt.
If you’re over the basic beige trench coat, this Calvin Klein Denim Trench ($128) is a nice alternative.
This Topshop Denim Handbag ($70) has a light wash that is perfect for running weekend errands during the warmer seasons.
I would usually never consider buying a denim shoe, but these ZiGiny Women’s Ginger Ballet Flat ($59.95) are cute and simple.
