Style Sessions Fashion Link Up: How To Wear Denim on Denim


Welcome to the Style Sessions Fashion Link Up! Today I’m talking about one of my favorite things ever… denim. Without a doubt it takes the title of “Most Worn” in my wardrobe and what I adore is there are so many different takes and styles of denim… from colored jeans, to chambray shirts, to skinny cuts – whatever your body shape or fashion take, there’s something just right for you.

How To Wear Denim on Denim…

Disclosure: Compensation was provided by Sears via Mode Media. The opinions expressed herein are those of the author and are not indicative of the opinions or positions of Sears.

I’ve partnered with Sears to explore this further and also show you one of my favorite trends… how to wear denim on denim (or a “Canadian Tuxedo” as some may call it). There’s a fine art to mastering this look and stars like Olivia Palermo, Rihanna, Reese Witherspoon and Ashley Olsen have got it perfected.

The key to wearing denim on denim? Mix two very different shades. Pair a light chambray shirt with dark jeans – the contrast will stop it from looking too matchy-matchy (or like a onesie) and make for a very polished but relaxed look.

To create my own denim on denim outfit, I wore this Canyon River Blues Snap Front Denim Top and these dark Skinny Jeans. I’ve got to tell you gals, not only is this timeless look chic, it’s comfy too!

Accessories always complete your look, so I added a calf-hair leopard belt, this bangle trio and this pave X-ring. Oh and we can’t forget a little pop of red, it looks so gorgeous with denim and leopard… this Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon in Napa Vineyard is my absolute favorite right now and on my nails, I’m wearing Olivia Palermo’s signature nail polish shade called Lollipop.

One of the best things about the denim-on-denim trend is how versatile it is – you can mix two blue denim shades (remember, the rule is one dark and one light!), or wear a blue chambray shirt with oxblood / burgundy jeans or classic black skinnies. A great wardrobe is one you can truly mix and match, and for me a staple of this is definitely denim. I hope if you’ve ever wondered how to wear denim on denim this simple trick helps! I’d love to know, are you a fan of the “Canadian Tuxedo”?

STYLE Q&A WITH BRENNA:

How would you describe your style? My personal style is based on a juxtaposition of elements. Girly elements fused with edgy. Classic silhouettes with trendy accessories. A neutral palate with a pop of something unexpected. I’m an extremist by my very nature and my style reflects that.

Which fashion trend are you currently loving? I’m a Midwest ma’am at the moment which means that capes have been clutch for my winter style this year. They are so effortless and have this je ne sais quoi Euro-chic vibe that I adore.

What inspired you to start your blog? I really wish I had a better answer to this question like, “fashion saved me” or, “Blair Eadie herself told me I should.” But no, it was my college freshman self that was endlessly motivated and was starting a new life. I wanted a way to document my style and my life milestones through outfits. A long the way it snowballed into so much more.

Name a couple beauty products you couldn’t live without: Garnier BB Cream (hello flawless complexion), M.A.C Lipstick in a variety of colors and Liquid Eyeliner for the perfect “wing”.

What is your best beauty trick? I use Bye Bye Blemish’s Drying Lotion (that is more like a liquid) and mix it with my BB Cream. It instantly takes care of any break outs (while wearing makeup) and keeps shine away. It’s a miracle. It also doubles as a spot treatment overnight.

What is your favorite (or dream) vacation destination? I lived in Italy for six months and I adored every moment. My only regret is not going to the Amalfi coast so that is top on my list, along with Santorini. My fiance and I are plotting a southern European honeymoon.

Tell us something not many people know about you? I’m a vegan and I’m a closet health nut. I stick to a whole-food, plant-based diet and have been for over three years. I’m borderline religious to Pilates and swear by starting every day with a health shake (followed immediately by coffee).
