From your first pair of Jordache to whatever exotic brand you're currently wearing, some form of denim is undoubtably sitting front and centre in your closet. This is no surprise, it's been a staple in fashion since the 50's.
A few years back double denim became acceptable again. With the charming moniker of Canadian Tuxedo, (jean worn on both top and bottom . . . at the same time) implying more than a hap-hazard approach to dressing. Thought and coordination are now used when putting together a look that was laughable not a decade ago.
Stella McCartney has helped give the controlled double denim ensemble a push in Spring 2015. Even more interesting, her the lack of distressing of the fabric. Clean bright dungarees, free of strategic rips, and patches, instead thoughtful embroidery and monochromatic piping adorn simple tunics and tanks.
Blue Blue Japan has taken indigo to the next level. As the name implies, Blue Blue Japan is devoted to this fabric medium. Designing incredibly wearable, simple styles in rich ultramarine to glacial blue tones - their trousers, dresses and shirts exemplify a timelessness in denim.
Certainly it's helpful to have coordinating pieces hanging right in front of you but a tailored outfit in denim doesn't have to be matchy matchy. Take a look at Leandra Medine's instructional article on how to wear pieces that in theory, should in no way work together. Except they do. It takes some imagination, a dash of bravery and a pinch of confidence. Anyone can wear double denim.
