Fashion Do's and Dont's: Denim on Denim

Denim is big this season, but even bigger is (eek!) denim on denim. After always thinking of matching denim outfits as a major faux pas, I found, after seeing a few of these matching outfits this season, that the look is surprisingly cool and laid-back. Doubling up on denim can sometimes not look so good...

Interesting fact- William Rast (Justin Timberlake's line) was one of the first collections to present us with the emerging double denim trend (first shown in his 2009 Fall/Winter collection).
How to rock this look? First, top and bottom must be two different shades! Even better is dark denim on the bottom and light on top. Second, try to separate the two shades of denim if they are close to one another, like putting a brown belt on. Brown is the best color to pair up your matching denim look because it's so neutral. Third, it's best to avoid those acid wash colored jeans, too much of that does just not look good. Lastly, keep this whole look simple, you don't need to add anything else but a few small accessories or jacket.
