DENIM ON DEMIN – The more the better or less is more?

Should you or shouldn’t you double up on your denim?

This particular question has already been discussed numerous times by fashion experts – without any clear answer.  The notorious fashion trend  still stirs up very ambivalent sentiments. But who brought it up in the first place? Why do people get so involved when it comes to denim on denim?

Worn by American Cowboys, denim was first fabricated and used in the 17th century. The versatile and sturdy fabric became popular later on because of its cool and rough vibe.

Not having a piece of denim in one’s closet is truly unimaginable! Still, many people believe one denim piece to be absolutely sufficient for one outfit. The denim on denim wear is not easily accomplished. There are countless of failed attempts that confirm people’s wariness towards this specific style. Since denim is a very rough and sturdy fabric, most of the clothing pieces already draw a lot of attention to the outfit. If the combination of several denim pieces is mismatched, it will become overwhelming and looses its unique appeal.

Denim on denim is considered a great fashion faux pas, even though many fashionable celebrities like Gigi Hadid, Zendaya and Cara Delevingne are seen wearing the challenging style. Looking back in history, it seems like the all-denim trend has always been at the top of the list in the fashion industry. Nonetheless, people like gossiping about this “fashion taboo” like no other.

Despite the never ending controversy, the denim on denim look has prevailed throughout time and never got out of style.

Who would dare to double up on his or her denim?
