Double Denim

Fashion can be a fickle mistress. For example, I never thought I'd be writing a post expressing the virtues of double denim - but here I am! The Texan tuxedo is one of the hottest trends of S/S.

For the past decade or so - ever since the denim disaster that was Britney and Justin's his 'n' hers outfits at the American Music Awards - the style rule has been never double up denim. But hey, sometimes rules are meant to be broken. The distressed, acid wash designs seen on the Balmain catwalk have certainly made me rethink. The trick is to miss-match different washes. Still avoid the indigo suit look favoured by '90s girl band b*witched (remember them?), but try indigo cut-offs with a stone-washed shirt for a relaxed, yet stylish Summer look.

Denim is nothing if not versatile - bags, shoes, earrings - you name it, the High Street is awash with the stuff. So why stop at double when you can go for the treble? Just don't coordinate with your boyfriend!
