Second-hand jacket / AA top / Topshop skirt
For my generation, I think the concept of denim-on-denim conjures up images of Britney and Justin and awful 90s boy bands with curtains. You definately walk a fine line when dipping your toe in the double denim waters, there is no denying that. The majority, myself included, use denim as a canvas. If you took denim to a party, nine times out of ten it would sit in the corner with a Diet Coke while a pair of shoes or a blouse told jokes and anecdotes. I guess double denim is the equivalent of denim getting drunk on tequila shots at the bar, doing the bus driver dance and showing the whole party its knickers. What I'm trying to say is that it makes a statement out of something that isn't normally the focus. While it is a statement in itself, I think at the same time you need a distraction from the double denim action, like a stripe or a polka dot. Is that right there an admission that double denim is inherently wrong and that you need something to trick the eye into looking at something else? I'm not quite sure. I think like Marmite and Jedward, you either love it or you hate it. And I love all three. So hate me.
What do you think of denim-on-denim, very right or very very wrong?
