It's a rare day that I'm not wearing denim of some sort. Whether it's a pair of jeans or a denim top or jacket, I usually have at least one piece on. It's just the easiest, most versatile thing you can wear!
Then of course there's those denim-on-denim days. I love pairing different shades of denim together, like white jeans and a blue denim jacket or black jeans and a chambray shirt. It's virtually impossible to go wrong this way. But I definitely avoid wearing a denim outfit that's the same weight and/or wash! As I never want to look too matchy-matchy.
You can even use denim shades to hide or flatter specific body parts. As a general rule, lighter shades of denim draw attention to the body parts they cover, while darker washes create a sliming effect.
Distressed jeans are my go-to, and this pair of Citizens of Humanity jeans have been my favourite for a while - I even bought them in grey! I paired them with an old denim shirt that I've had for forever, and I wore a little striped tank underneath for a little something extra.
I layered on my Brullon Sweater from Aritzia for some extra warmth because it is winter after all! This sweater is such a great layering piece and I love it's oversized silhouette. I topped everything off with my Marc Fisher booties that I've been rockin' all winter long and the beautifully streamlined Saddle Bag from Cuyana for a little pop of colour.
