How To Rock Denim On Denim

Without looking blue


Denim — be it jeans, a shirt, a jacket or shorts — is usually the most fuss-free item in our wardrobes. We throw it on, pair it with something and we’re ready to step out of the door to face the day. That is, until we want to try the denim-on-denim trend.
