Our June issue is all about denim and (as if we needed an excuse) we’ve put together our top five celebrity denim-on-denim looks. These celebrities prove that you can be creative and adventurous when it comes to styling this wardrobe staple.

1. Rihanna

Rihanna (also known as the Queen of slaying) is daring in her dark wash denim on denim ensemble. It’s not easy pulling off navy denim but we love its slimming effect. The ‘Pon de replay’ singer is also wearing denim *boots* proving that fashion bravery goes a long way.

 

2. Eleanor Pendleton

The founder of the Australian beauty website Gritty Pretty is changing the fashion game by taking a very unexpected or unusual approach to white denim. What makes this outfit stand out, is the exquisite detailing seen on the buttons, the out-stitching creating a quiet cinch, and the peplum effect of the jacket. This is a go-to style for anyone who is in search of a playful denim-on-denim look.

 

3. Lori Harvey

Lori is serving a strong 90s look with a modern twist. This TLC rendition is playful and quirky, making it versatile for a night out or a Friday at work. However, if you are not a big fan of the bandeaux, a fitted white t-shirt will do to make the cropped jeans stand out.

 

4. Kim Kardashian West

We cannot deny the fact that Kim Kardashian has been a trend-setter for years, all thanks to her stylist (and husband) Kanye West. Kim has been wearing pieces and venturing into styles that most girly-girls wouldn’t have dared to wear in the past – oversized denim jackets were previously known to be worn by hip-hop lovers and androgynous dressers. As seen in the image below, Kim is sporting this look with very feminine pieces (for example the denim skirt and fur purse), creating a soft aesthetic to balance out the jacket.

 

5. Kylie Minogue

We love this look from Kylie, as it shows how subtle drama can be a win. The dress compliments any body type and is easily paired with anything.

We hope this post will help you break away from the idea that denim-on-denim is a fashion no-no, because if done right, it really works.
