No matter if we are gearing up for a weekend outing or just in the house with our casual Friday get-up, we cannot deny how denim plays a major role in our lifestyle. But what kind of denim do you need to have in your arsenal to make certain you are prepared at all times?

Denim on denim fashion is here and will not be going away anytime soon. It has been seen on celebrities and fashion icons alike with some being a hit or miss. The trick for implementing denim on denim ideas into your fashion lies strictly on the pieces you select and put together to complete the outfit. Nobody wants to look like they stepped out of the time machine from the 80s. Here is some denim on denim ideas outlining the basics that will change the way you wear your jeans.

Making sure that the colors of your denim on denim pieces are distinct from each other is the first basic rule. Opt for contrast shades by pairing a washed blue denim jacket or shirt with darkish blue, black or gray jeans or vice versa. Ask yourself which one of them you want lighter or darker? The jacket or the pants?

The second rule to remember: Say no to a pair of saggy jeans and an ill-fitting blouse. This can be very disastrous and should be avoided. It is also not good the other way round; a baggy jacket and tight jeans. The fundamental strategy here is having both your shirt and jeans properly fitted to your body shape. Choose colors that will flatter, (lighter shades) or hide, (darker shades) certain body parts. You also want to make certain the cuts are slim, especially at the legs.
