Let These Celebs Show You How To Pull Off The Denim-On-Denim Trend
It’s tricky but not impossible
There was a time when denim-on-denim was considered a fashion faux pas. However, the trend has come a long way. It’s 2021, and it is certainly possible to pull it off. There’s no doubt it can get tricky sometimes, but if you follow some rules, mix and match the right denim shades and juxtapose the right pieces, you’ll surely make a statement. If you’re looking for some inspiration on how to ace this trend, take notes from these celebrities who will give you tons of style inspiration.
Break The Monotony
Let’s start with the basics. Kriti Sanon sported a gorgeous, light wash denim co-ord set and paired it with a white tube top. Style tip to note from the actor: opt for a neutral shade like black or white to break the denim shade's monotony.
Make an impression by pairing light and dark tones, just like Kareena Kapoor Khan. She styled a dark denim top with light acid-wash, box cut jeans.
Who said you have to always choose a blue denim shade? The fabric comes in various colours. Take a cue from Kendall Jenner and opt for a bold, bright denim jacket and jeans to make a statement.
You can also choose to mix two different denim shades. For instance, Bella Hadid paired dark blue denim with a super-cropped top and layered it with a long denim jacket complete with a khaki coloured straight fit jeans. She completed the street-chic look with a black handbag, black ankle-length boots and a multicoloured beret.
Take cues from Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Rihanna on how to accessorise a denim-on-denim look. Pair your outfit with an accessory of contrasting colour like a bag, shoes or sunglasses.
If you’re wearing a monotone denim look, you can choose to play with cuts and silhouettes. Case in point: Kiara Advani.
Take a leaf out of Gigi Hadid’s style book and upgrade your graphic tee with a denim jacket and jeans combo. The model accessorised her look with a red clutch, red ankle-length boots, gold chain necklaces and black shades.
