Double Denim

I’ve been told jean-on-jean is not a good look. Even if your name is Jean–and I agree (usually). If denim on top and on bottom looks very “Jay Leno on the weekend” (it’s also a look referred to as a Canadian tuxedo).

To look more fashionista and less farmer (not that I have anything against farmers), wear different shades of denim.

Shorts: Banana Republic
Shoes: Aerosoles

I paired a light chambray dress over shorts with a darker wash. You can try a dark denim jacket with faded jeans, a medium wash with colorful skinnies, or my favorite: blue with white denim.

I got this dress in Hawaii–where baring a lot was common. When I threw it on in Seattle, I felt underdressed. As summer progresses, I’ll get over that feeling. But for now, the dress is a tunic and the shorts are a good transition into skimpy summer looks.

I like remixing my clothes and layering is a great way to change up the look of certain pieces. Short dresses look great over skinny jeans, leggings, and even long, slim-cut shorts.

Do you have other tricks for re-wearing items?
