We’re huge fans of unisex styling, as well as the come-and-go trend that always feels relevant, denim on denim. In this video by Refinery29, Hannah Hart of web series My Drunk Kitchen and Deryck Todd, creator of Bowie Ball break down how to style your double denim looks in ways that work for both the ladies and the gents, interchangeably. See it here.
We’re always looking for ways to make our favorite style cues feel fresh, and we love when we stumble across a trend-setter who is doing exactl that. Style blogger Aimee of SwellMayde pairs her Levi’s Women’s 501 Jeans (grab a similar pair here) with a chambray button-down top and lace tank, creating a double denim look with a bit of elegance. In another look, she switches out the chambray for a super seasonal plaid shirt. See both looks below, and check out the original post for more images.

Once upon a time, the phrase double denim called to mind images of “Canadian tuxedos” and horrific family photos from the 90s featuring multiple generations wearing jean shirts and jeans. But then, a couple years ago, double denim became a thing. The chicest models-off-duty and fashion editors began sporting the look to fashion week, and then style bloggers ran wild with it. Fall is a denim-heavy season to be sure, so to gear up for it, we’re breaking down ways to make your double denim look expensive and stylish, with the help of this great outfit from Viva Luxury.

1. Mix washes. Pairing two medium wash denim pieces together? Bad. Mixing a medium-to-light wash chambray button down with acid wash jeans? Perfection.
2. Tote a chic bag. Head-to-toe denim with a fabric bag over your shoulder definitely looks casual-cool, but not “expensive”. Do yourself a favor and grab your vintage chanel clutch or other cute purse to keep the look high end.
3. Wear fresh kicks. Nothing says “I am effortlessly stylish and I make more money than you!” than a pair of fresh, clean kicks to punctuate your outfit. Bonus points for metallics.

From DL1961: DL1961 Premium Denim unveils its Fall/Winter 2014 campaign, which was shot against a denim backdrop by fashion photographer Sharif Hamza, and styled by Tom Van Dorpe. The campaign features models Tess Hellfeuer and Mathias Lauridsen, and highlights fresh, modern looks of head-to-toe denim. From dark, clean lines to sleek, buttoned-up styling, the campaign is a major departure from anything the brand has done before.
“This season we wanted to create a collection that represents the technological nature and sleekness of our denim,” said Sarah Ahmed, DL1961’s Creative Director. “We continue our mission to create ‘the perfect fitting jeans’ and are excited to unveil our Fall/Winter fit collection, which captures the premium, effortless yet signature style that DL1961 has become known for.”

We’ve got to say, double denim (or the Canadian Tuxedo, if you will), is sort of a standard for us at this point. We don’t bat an eyelash if we’re strolling through Brooklyn and spot someone stylishly sporting this mono-denim combo. WWD says it’s only just getting revved up, though, and it may be that the two-toned denim-on-denim trend is about to streamline into same-wash territory. Excited? Horrified? Either way, click through to see their slide show and figure out whether this trend progression is for you.

We are all familiar with the thickly stitched horseshoe that each pair of True Religion’s comes equipped with, but we have to say their Fall/Winter 2012 lookbook is throwing us off into a new direction, and we like it. The brand’s latest lookbook exudes uncharted hues, vintage patterns and prints we are going to want to wear all season long. With different washes and leg openings this is a collection you’ve got to check out and most likely snag up more than one pair.

Guess is known for its sexier take on denim and they’re certainly turning up the heat for fall/winter 2012. For women, they’ve styled skinny jeans with luxe coats, collared shirts (even if they’re sometimes, um, see-through), bold take-charge heels, and chunky gold accessories. The message they’re sending men? Turn down the glam, turn up the campy rugged edge with fisherman’s sweaters, dusty boots, and suspenders. But we still think that is sexy, FYI.
