Classy, Not Trashy: Denim on Denim

BFF-1

BFF-3
What I'm wearing: Forever 21 striped sweatshirt, J.Crew Outlet denim button-down, Gap Always Skinny jeans, Aldo tan boots, Urban Outfitters earrings, Vintage bracelet

I woke up this morning feeling cold and tired, wishing I had picked out an outfit the night before because all I really wanted was to stay in my pajamas. I always tell myself I'm going to start planning my outfits at the beginning of the week , but that pretty much never happens. While eating breakfast this morning, I was reading through some blogs (my morning routine), and I stumbled upon Sydney's post about 10 winter wardrobe staples. One of the items she had listed was a denim shirt. This got the wheels in my head turning, since I recently purchased a denim shirt at the J.Crew outlet and had yet to wear it. I wasn't quite ready to go full-out denim on denim, so I layered this striped sweater/sweatshirt over top. I wasn't sure how it was going to translate from my head onto my actual self, but I actually really like how it turned out. How do you wear your denim on denim so it looks classy, not trashy?

This is a win! Love the collar over the round neck. I've never tried denim on denim, but I would probably wear it like this.. Light over dark.

I've never done denim-on-denim, but I'd say that you nailed it. Looks good.

I am LOVING this outfit! Seriously so chic! You totally inspired my outfit for tomorrow! Hopefully, I'll be brave enough to get a picture - in the snow! Eeek!
