Breaking Another Fashion Rule: Denim on Denim

Every once in a while we have to challenge society's fashion rules and styling do's and don't. Well, I am here to tell you that some rules are meant to be broken!

So after challenging the "can't wear white" rule on my Wednesday post, I decided to put to the test the "can't wear denim on denim" rule, also know as the "matchy matchy" rule.

A few weeks ago, in honor of the Light It Up Blue campaign for World Autism Awareness Day, I decided to pair this amazing chambray top from Moda Mix Fashions with a pair of my favorite, tried-and-true, skinny jeans from Fashion to Figure. I knew we would be out and about all day so I wanted a look that was sleek but comfortable.

The monochromatic effect of the chambray on denim was exactly what I was looking for. I sealed off the look with matching glitter flats and a funky bag that made this the perfect ensemble for a fun Saturday afternoon.

    Probably the only "guideline" I've stepped over, is maybe dressing not my age?? I'm 55 and am loving the athleisure look so I'm (HAPPILY) wearing sneakers with swing dresses and other "mixing casual with everything" looks. And other than being slightly concerned that I might cross a line at work, I'm like HEY WORLD, I LIKE DRESSING LIKE THIS SO DEAL. Ha.

    Love your denim on denim look. I think the key, as you've done here, is a subtle mixing of tones and textures. The lighter colored, lighter weight top is a nice subtle contrast to the darker more traditional denim on the bottom. Are those the F2F jeggings? I hope so, I just ordered a pair and am hoping they look half as nice as yours do on you!
