The Divine Right of Denim

A couple weeks ago, I was reading a fashion article which said that all denim outfits are no longer fashion faux pas. Instead, this look was apparently present on a lot of runway shows this year. High end designers like Ralph Lauren and Dolce and Gobbana are all doing denim on denim. So I checked out some pictures online and I kind of liked it.

Some denim looks from Chole, Ralph Lauren, D&G

I usually think of jeans as merely an necessity (you kind of need to wear pants) and sort of an after thought for an outfit. It was out of my comfort zone to go all denim but I decided to try out the look on my own. Here's what I came up with.

asymmetrical denim blazer: Charlotte Russe (10 bucks!)
cream tunic-Discreet
medium tone skinny jeans: Decree 
denim flats: No Boundaries
"N" initial necklace: 

I wanted to do this look by pairing different denim shades together--after all, wearing the same denim all across in everyday life may send a signal along the lines of "I suffer from an acute mental disorder." I also included the cream tunic underneath to give the eye a slight break from so much denim.

Lesson of the day: high end fantasy looks are not only reserved for the runway or glossy magazine covers. As long as you have an editing eye and tone things down for real life, you can take inspiration directly from the big designers.

Until next time,
