      More than convincing – I’m all about at good Canadian Tuxedo at the moment. I guess its sort-of 90ies & who doesn’t love the 90ies?

    I don’t usually think about denim on denim . . . at least not until now. Looks pretty chic when the colors of the denim are separated by a shade or two . . .

    Thinking about Denim on Denim… I remember the SATC quote
    “Charlotte: Imagine, being blind and not being able to see a beautiful day like today. Can you think of anything worse?
    Anthony: Stonewashed jeans and a matching jacket.”

    I guess Anthony would have changed his mind if he has seen your pictures. It’s so beautiful when you know how to wear it!

    Love it! I’ve always seen denim as a neutral, a foil, a way to balance positive and negative space in an outfit…so I’m all for denim on denim. Fantastic series (if you’re thinking about…), enjoying each one!

    This is great! Personally, I’ve never been one for denim skirts, but somehow the denim skirt paired with the denim button-down and those cute brown shoes makes me want to give it a try!

    I could never pull this look off – but when done well it looks so good.

    Denim has something ageless, and rugged with a strong personality. It’s a fabric that is sustainable, works in every wardrobe, for every style.
    Long live denim.

    How about denim without jeans? A year ago I decided I never want to wear them again – sick of the sight of them, in all their myriad forms, and of the assumptions they carry of ease, toughness, being Real.

    I think about doing denim on denim all the time, even though it takes me back to the 80s and all sorts of fashion faux pas! I’m of the opinion that some trends are welcomed back- revisited, reworked, whatever. There’s a reason why we all love a cliche, after all.

    The Sartorialist also has a picture of Jenna Lyons doing denim on denim very well! Comes to show how much of a fan I am of this site. I practically know all the photos. Quite ridiculous actually. Oh well :)

    I never thought of wearing denim on denim (too matchy-matchy) but after seeing these photos, I might try the first look.
    Of course, I would need a felt hat and a crossbody bag !

    From someone who used to despise the double denim trend, it’s certainly growing on me and this post has definitely elevated that notion. It’s gone from 80′s throwback to a sentimental casual style. Personally, I still think it’s important to consider the shape and fit of the denim and how the pieces match together, denim on denim looks effortless and cool but it can be so easy to end up looking like a rejected 80s boy band. That being said, it’s refreshing to see the trend styled as portrayed in the photos, it’s all too often that double denim is worn as dark skinny jeans and a lighter denim shirt – that was getting tired!

    I am thinking about women wearing masculine clothes in a feminine way. Not the androgine look, but bringing the masculine pants and jackets into women’s fashion!
    I know you have some awesome pictures with these women!

    I would love a book printed in this style!
    I’m thinking about winter, rainy days, high heels, shorts, etc! It’s exactly what we are missing now: fining the right inspiration when we feel like dressing in a certain style!

    Keep it up!

    Nope, not into it. With most trends that I initially dislike, repetitive exposure causes it to grow on me. Not this one. Blue denim on denim just looks tacky to me, even on the most beautiful of women.
