Now I have a very important question. Recently, many of my favorite prepster brands (cough J. Crew and Ralph Lauren) have been pushing an all-jean ensemble. I was taught (okay, self-taught) that it was a cardinal sin to wear a denim shirt/jacket with your jeans. Why are they trying to shake up my clothing-knowledge foundation? Worst of all, I actually like the Chambray shirts that have popped up. A lot. What is this world coming to?
Here are the rules for an all denim ensemble, according to Elle Magazine:
1. It's all about the wash. Pair a lighter denim top with darker jeans or vice versa.
2. Break it up with a leather or suede belt.
3. Keep it simple by avoiding acid washed or printed denim (which I think you should be doing anyway)
That doesn't sound too difficult. What do you think? Could you pull off a DOD (Denim-On-Denim) outfit?
