Ask Shopbop: Denim on Denim


Look 1: Madewell blazer, Madewell top, Marc by Marc Jacobs shorts, Vince pumps. Look 2: IRO jacket, MOTHER skirt, See by Chloe sandals. Look 3: Eugenia Kim hat, Madewell top, Marc by Marc Jacobs jeans, Coclico Shoes oxfords.

I would love to try a denim on denim look, but how do I keep it from turning into a Canadian tuxedo?

Denim with denim is a huge trend for spring, but keeping the look modern can be tricky. Here are my four easy tips for pulling it off:

1. Mix pieces with different washes to avoid a head-to-toe denim suit look.
2. Use subtly printed denim to create depth and a feeling of differentiated texture.
3. Substitute chambray for denim to add another layer of tonal similarity.
4. Break up the denim with a bright knit or patterned jacket to tie it all together.
