Denim Double Take

[Caution readers: Coming up is a trend that could go horribly awry. Please handle with care and good fashion sense.]

This spring retailers are bring back the 70s and 90s and switching things up by putting denim on the top half of the body rather than your bottom [half]. Jean jackets and denim inspired cotton shirts and dresses are making their way back onto the shelves and racks and into our closets this season. But this TRAX writer is a little hesitant to get too excited because I dread seeing a jean jacket paired with jean pants. ICK. But if one can style it right, this trend can turn into a cute fashion twist. To demonstrate I created two outfits using this denim double take trend.

First outfit is a denim inspired cotton shirt dress that, while it’s still a little chilly out, can be paired with legging and boots and accessorized with a scarf or necklace or a cute pair of flats in the warmer months for a light, casual day look.

My next outfit has a little more of a twist. I took a denim mini dress and paired it with a bright floral skirt for a fun spring to summer look!

Remember, stay away from denim on denim, especially if they are the same shade. No one wants to look like a cowboy at junior prom in a denim tuxedo.
