Fashion Week has wound down on a global scale, and we’re kind of glad it has (refreshing Style.com every 5 minutes is exhausting). But we’re willing to backtrack to Paris Fashion Week for a moment to appreciate Kate Mara of House of Cards‘ chic denim-on-denim ensemble at the Louis Vuitton show. Reports The Cut:
Dazed & Confused March 2013 features model Kasia Struss wearing denim-as-couture in the form of backwards-jean denim dresses, oversized jackets, and floor length gowns. Shot by photographer Josh Olins, the shoot features styling by Robbie Spencer, who put together more creative takes on your basic jeans and workshirt than you probably imagined possible. Check out the full editorial below.

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.

Popular style blogger Andy Torres of Style Scrapbook spent her warm New Year’s eve rocking a double denim outfit, while visiting family in Mexico. Never boring, Andy went for a bright red pair of skinny jeans by Zara, to complement her DIY denim shirt. At first, we thought her sleeves were the result of an ombré dip-dye project, but we soon learned she did a chop job by sewing on bleached sleeves (which does have a subtle ombré effect), three-quarters of the way down. This girl’s got talent!
Are you in love with how Andy is working the color trend throughout her outfit? We don’t all know how to sew (nor have time to, if we could!), so we’ve pulled together a few pieces to mimic Andy’s fab look! Layer a white button down under a denim shirt (with blue sleeves rolled up), et voilà!

Not feeling dark shades this winter? We aren’t either! But lets face it, sometimes it’s hard not to result to black during the cooler seasons. An easy way to keep your wardrobe on the bright side is to mix and match different shades of denim and by adding interest to any look with interesting prints and patterns. Mohcine Aoki does just that by styling a cool fair isle sweater with a not so matchy, matchy double denim ensemble (we really dig his light washed denim jacket!). To ensure you keep things bright, style in accessories with pops of color and in warmer shades like brown instead of black.
1. Topman ecru geometric pattern sweater ($60) — buy it at Topman.
2. Levi’s hop cap boots ($272) — buy it at ASOS.
3. Miracle Icons tourmaline bead bracelet ($115) — buy it at Barneys Co-Op.

One of the hottest and most wearable trend of the season is definitely the western-meets-bohemian look. So far we’ve shown you hot to rock it with bold prints and scantly denim shorts shorts, but now that it’s getting a bit more chilly we figure you might want to add a layer or two. We love this girls take on this trend, so we broke it down for you for some food for thought. Her double denim look gets a cozy revamp with a oversized chunky knit sweater thrown over. An on-trend floppy hat, worn in suede booties, and gold accessories add the perfect western flare without going overboard.

We love the double-denim look on both guys and gals, but it can get a bit industrial with all of that blue jean in the mix. So, how do you soften the look and make it cute enough to wear on a first date? Take a hint from Le Blog de Betty, one of our favorite fashion bloggers! She paired this pair of adorable ballerina slippers (complete with bow) with her Lee jeans and denim workshirt. The result? Très jolie!

Welcome to your morning dose of denim news, links, sales, and everything else we couldn’t help but share. Check out what’s happening (and totally not happening) in the world of denim now. Got a tip you think we should include, a sale you want to share, or a style you just saw and can’t live without? Email us!
1. We know Kate Moss can more or less do whatever she wants, but we’re pretty sure this denim-on-denim almost-the-same-but-not-quite-the-same light wash ensemble is a big no-no. The black boots/black hat/black belt punctuation is pretty bad too. Come on, Kate!
2. We love the relaxed fit of the jeans in this super modern, urban and beautiful fall collection by Israeli brand Mandinka.
3. Hudson Jeans’ refreshing lookbook concept for spring 2012 is a stop-motion video comprised of many photos of a model wearing the jeans. Super cool (and we bet it saved them some money).
4. See what a good, worn-in pair of jeans looks like over at Dr. Denim.
5. This editorial in VS magazine’s september issue might have ridiculous ’90s hair that makes us feel like we’re in an overtly sexy episode of Saved By The Bell, but there’s a whole lot of perfectly distressed, gorgeous denim to oogle at.
