Double Denim: Pair it the Right Way
Have you ever noticed how most of the men who make wearing double denim look easy are famous? Beckham, Kanye, Timberlake. Fortunately, there are a few fail-safe outfits that are as olden and golden as denim itself. From black jeans and a light wash jacket to white jeans and a chambray shirt, here are the combinations that just work.
Black Jeans Black Jacket
There are two things that, as a general rule of thumb, make dressing a great deal easier: denim and dark colours. So it makes sense, then, that pairing black jeans with a similar shade of jacket would be a reliable choice that works like a suit to elongate the body.
There’s less pressure to switch up the shades of each than when working with blue washes, though it’s a wise choice to break things up slightly with other neutral shades such as white T-shirt or grey jumper.
Black Jeans Light Wash Jacket
An entry-level foray into double denim, pairing black jeans with a light wash jacket is the perfect way to get a grunge-inspired getup without needing any musical ability
While experimenting with extras such as a borg collar in winter can take it up a notch, it pays to keep both elements as classic as possible. Then all it takes to finish is a crisp white T-shirt and some neat footwear.
Black Jeans White Jacket
Denim’s greatest asset is its versatility, much like the colour combination of black and white. Not just limited to dinner suits and formal dos, a monochrome jeans and jacket outfit is a way to nail one of the season’s key looks with ease.
White jeans have been growing in popularity recently. But flip the outfit on its head with an easily removed jacket and darker denim below.
Dark Wash Jeans Light Wash Jacket
The rule that your bottom half should always be darker than your top (as opposed to considering the effect this has on the body’s shape) is as restricting and outdated as saying no brown in town when it comes to shoes.
However, that doesn’t take away from the solid pairing that is dark wash jeans and a light wash jacket. This is an intermediate style move because there’s enough difference between the two pieces that you don’t have to worry about wearing a Canadian tuxedo.
