How to Wear Denim on Denim (on Denim)

50 shades of blue! Don’t you just love all things denim? Items in denim are always easy choices for me when it comes to styling because they tend to be so versatile. I practically live in my favorite jeans (under $30). And, I’ve never met a chambray shirt that I didn’t love. I’m so glad, then, that as a fashion community, we’ve tossed antiquated fashion rules about wearing denim. So, denim on denim on denim, it is!

How to wear denim on denim

Denim-on-denim styling went from fashion don’t to fashion do along my style journey. And, today, I’m pushing the limits of the beloved styling technique by wearing three denim items in the same look. You see, I stumbled upon an article in a major fashion publication that advised against adding denim accessories to denim-on-denim ensembles. When that piece was written, I don’t think the author could envision a super fly denim head wrap as the accessory.

By the way, you must see my Support-a-Sista Holiday Gift Guide featuring my favorite head wraps and other stylish products created by black woman owned business. Today’s featured denim head wrap was included in that roundup.


I wore this denim outfit to a blogger shopping event at the St. Louis Premium Outlets last Saturday. I can’t wait to share my finds from that trip. The deals there are especially amazing right now.


St. Louis was fairly cold that weekend, so I added my mustard moto jacket as a fun (and warm) layer since I needed to wear it throughout the event. The mall is an outdoor mall. The jacket was a great addition to the denim look because of its silhouette and color.
