Today’s “curly” style dare was less a challenge than an excuse to wear my hair like I always do. So to make up for it I did something I never thought I would EVER do – denim on denim.
I didn’t set out to do it – I was originally wearing a grey blazer, but it didn’t suit my mood today and out of the blue it occurred to me my denim jacket might look okay. I tried it on and actually didn’t mind the look, so it stayed.
So how did I manage to convince myself that denim on denim was acceptable? Well I guess one reason is that having read a lot of style blogs over the last year I’ve gotten a bit used to the idea! On top of that: I’m wearing a long top which breaks up the denim, they are different but complementary shades of blue (ideally I’d like slightly more contrast I think), and I’ve added a colourful scarf to offer some visual relief. I don’t imagine this will become a staple look for me, but it’s so interesting to find myself trying things I had never have expected to.
