Style-Delights: Lookbook - How To Wear Denim on Denim

Lookbook - How To Wear Denim on Denim

Did you shudder a little when you saw this title? In fact, I was a little scared too to try denim on denim as it can be a tricky look to pull off (remember Britney and Justin at AMA 2001?) But I had challenged myself to create an outfit for which-  
1. I wanted to try denim on denim without using chambray shirt
2. I wanted to use other than my skinny jeans
3. I wanted to make a workplace outfit with denim
And this outfit came out winning (damn you Charlie Sheen for ruining this word for me!), if I say so myself! I love this short sleeves denim jacket for its structure and I paired it with a white button down and a dark wash jeans. To balance the masculinity of all that blue denim, I am wearing my prettiest pair of pumps (just love these pink rosettes!) and a string of pearls - what do you think?

  3. You look, quite simply, fantastic. It looks like a business suit made of dark denim, instead of a Manitoban Tuxedo (I'm not sure what the non-Canadian equivalent to that would be ... ). Super chic (and you may have inspired a future outfit, actually), I'm really glad I popped over here from my FB notification from the FBFF group. Cheers!

  6. I think you pulled it off and the fact that helped was that both the jacket and jeans were almost the same color :) :)

  9. This is a perfect workplace outfit! You did a great job with the styling as it is normally done with a chambray shirt and it is nice to see the look worn a different way! xx

  11. Love it! This outfit makes me regret sending a similar short sleeved jacket to a swap! But I could never figure out how to wear it. I adore the little pop of flirty floral with your shoes. Nicely done!!

  22. yes, you broke a style rule! But my word you so so in style. I love your high waisted top and love that the white shirt peeks out underneath. Everything fits so perfectly and you look a mile long. Definitely worth pinning!
