After I wrote about the double-denim look and predicted it would become a genuine fashion trend, a few gorgeous outliers volunteered to try the style or a variation thereof while others offered evidence that they were leaders of the pack. (Please click the bloggers’ photos to see their full posts and additional pictures.)
That post also has great closeups of Mai’s Martin Margiela nail heel booties and Nars Kitty turquoise eyeliner.
Meanwhile, Jennine of The Coveted exclaimed, “I thought I wouldn’t cave on this one, but it’s all I can think about!” She’s apparently a little shy, however, and has contented herself with sneaking around off camera in double-denim separates. On camera, she’s modeled a chambray dress, which is a very wearable option for those who want a look that barely whispers “denim.” Shhhh. You have to be very quiet to hear it.
Jennine’s handsome husband Rocky is happy to shout his love for denim. Jennine alerted me to the fact that Rocky was rocking double denim in this snap from The SF Style.
When I wrote about the Gap’s promotion of the hard-core denim top-and-bottom look, we all theorized that the style would only work in ad campaigns and on runways. Here is Fiona from Save Our Shoes to prove us wrong.
Work With What You’ve Got went wild, adding denim accessories to her denim jacket and jeans.
I think thrifting queen Sharon Rose looks spectacular in a faded Topshop denim jacket and darker denim leggings. Naturally, she got the jacket for a whopping £3.99. I don’t know how she does it.
As a bonus, Sharon put on her McQ playsuit just for this post.
Finally, Stacy of taffetadarlings deserves a round of applause for finding a picture of her cute self wearing a denim jumpsuit in 1976.
After seeing Stacy’s picture, my first thought was, “One thing I’m sure of is that we’ll never wear yarn pigtail bows again.” My second thought was, “Never say never!” So … who’s up for starting a yarn-in-hair trend? Anyone? Anyone? ANYONE?
