The Blues

Denim on denim.
Hey, it's not everyone's cup of tea,
but it's something that should be
tried out at least once.

having only denim fabric
clothe your entire body
is weird, quirky, and strange,
but, honey, there are ways of ensuring
you don't end up looking like this:

I love you Justin and Britney, but this ain't happenin'.

Or especially this:

Oh, gosh...

So how can one wear double denim?

#1 DON'T wear the same shade of denim. This is just bad.
Go with both light and dark fabrics
with different washes and finishes (chambray?).
Create variety.

#2 DO wear a belt and/or shoes in brown or tan to break up the monotony.
Those kind of colours look good against denim.

#3 DO take note of the fit of your denim. It can affect how your outfit will turn out.
Since the first thing people will notice is how much blue you're wearing,
the shape of your jeans will be put on emphasis.
So make sure your jeans are well-fitting and flattering.
NO 80s mom jeans! Unless you're that daring...or you're a hipster =P

#4 DO wear cute accessories such as fancy necklaces, headpieces, ect...
Accessories give a feminine touch to the "masculinity" of denim,
as well as add interest to an entirely blue outfit.

#5 DO find inspiration from the runways!

...As well as from street style and fashion bloggers!

And my biggest inspiration yet...
