For a super-comfy and stylish weekend look, pair your favorite distressed boyfriend jeans with an oversized, ultra-pale chambray button-up, slip-on sneakers and an easy-breezy backpack.
Yes, you can wear dark-rinse skinny jeans with a light denim jacket—in fact, the look can be surprisingly flattering on a wide range of body types. To offset the inherent '80s-ness of the combo, just add a pair of polished ballet flats, a chain-strap bag and a classic striped tee.
Ready for music festival season? Try a pair of cutoffs in inky black instead of standard-issue blue and choose a sleeveless chambray shirt with cool leather paneling. Sandals, shades and a practical crossbody bag are ideal concert-hopping extras.
You probably assumed you couldn't wear denim-on-denim to the office, right? Guess again! Layer a dark denim blazer over an elegant pleated dress in the same fabric, add some retro-inspired yet classic accessories, and you're all set.
The acid wash is having a moment again; this time around, it pairs perfectly with bright white denim. Add your favorite black ankle boots, a camo clutch and subtle silver jewelry and prepare for the compliments to roll in.
Of course, the absolute simplest way to wear denim on denim is to pick a color-blocked jean item—that way, all the heavy lifting's already done! It might seem like overkill to pair this dress with coordinating denim-blocked ballet flats—but by mixing in classic, timeless items like a khaki trench and leather bucket bag, the overall look is surprisingly wearable.
