If there’s one trend that’s been cursed with a bad reputation, it’s double denim. Ever since Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake’s all-denim debut at the 2001 American Music Awards, this trend has become a fashion faux pas. Here’s how to wear denim on denim without committing social suicide.

When you dare to wear double denim, you risk looking outdated. The secret to doing it successfully is balance. By contrasting different washes and colors, you can create an interesting outfit, and flatter your figure. For example, dark washed denim can help to slim your figure, whilst light colors draw attention. Another tip is to try to break up your look – distressed denim, or bold accessories like statement necklaces and brightly colored belts, can help to make your look on point rather than overwhelming.
