Style Tried&Tested: Denim on Denim

This week I was asked to pull off a little denim on denim. I have to say I was more than anxious about it since I have recurring double denim dreams of a time when I thought denim mini's team with denim jackets were hawt, oh the shame.

But in the name of red neck fashion I dug deep and did it, only to discover it wasn't as bad as I thought. There appears to be a lot of differing opinions on how to do this look; some say avoid belts, others state they are a must. Some stress to avoid cowboy boots, others suggest injecting a little cowboy is a plus. Some side with skinny jeans and baggy shirts and other swear the opposite. As I was a fan of neither I opted for this...

Boyfriend jeans: £14.99 H&M
Denim Shirt with shoulder detail: £7.99 H&M
Studded belt: £65.00 Sam Thomas
Truly Madly Deeply Roda Rosen Tee: £28.00 Urban Outfitters
Brown suede boots: currently on sale at Carvela - were £150.00

Two different shades of denim are the easiest way to achieve the look, I felt popping a belt on broke everything up which I personally liked. I went for a funky T underneath as I just couldn't bare the thought of buttoning up the shirt. If you are opting for a baggier jean turn them up at the bottom, along with rolling the sleeves of your shirt up too. I had to pair everything together with heels so high I was in danger of vertigo as it was the only way to counteract feeling a little butch.

Marks out of 10...
Happy to be seen out in it: 4/10 - I'm just not a jean gal.
Comfort: 6/10, the heels are what made the outfit for me, but being so high they were difficult to maneuver.
