OOTD - Double Denim!

Double denim is one of those trends that looks good on all the celebrities in the press, however the minute I try and achieve a 'catwalk worthy' outfit, it looks as if a 2 year old has styled me. When I was younger - and even now- double denim was one of the biggest trends! I have tried different ways of styling the look, however it always looks 'too much' ... I usually realize this when I look back at all my photos and realize how bad I looked! I just don't think it was a look that was meant for me.

Now I am a bit older I have learned what suits me and what doesn't (all those cringe moments have done something!) and when done right, think that the double denim look can be a stylish everyday outfit. I have had a look about and put together one of my go to outfits for the Summer/Autumn season....


Jeans - Matalan, Shoes - Garage shoes, Top - Boutique of Molly


The problem I always had trying to style this look was I overloaded my outfit with denim... I didn't really get the hang of balancing an outfit until I was older. Nowadays I think for everyday wear, having one statement piece with another 'add-on' piece is the way to go... well for me anyway!

For this look I have paired my ripped boyfriend jeans from 'Matalan' with a gorgeous denim crop top from 'Boutique of Molly'. The top is cropped and quite fitted, so it doesn't overload the outfit and compliments the trousers just right.


I haven't went overboard with accessories either and kept it quite simple... just a simple pair of sandals and a few subtle pieces of jewelry finish of the look nicely.




This crop top from 'Boutique of Molly is one of my favourite summer purchases! It has such subtle pieces of detail that make the top look more expensive than it is. It is elasticated at the back so is super comfy, and the crossed straps add a little 'something extra' to make this one of my favourite pieces I have bought from the website.


These jeans have been a go to item for myself this summer and were so comfy, they were featured in my 'Summer Must-haves' post which you can read HERE. Matalan are one of my favourite places for jeans, they are such good quality and are such good value for money... would totally recommend having a look on their website.
