Let’s face it—the denim-on-denim trend is not going out of fashion anytime soon. So if you’re attempting the look, why not make it a head-to-toe one, à la Christian Dior? An effortless way to nail the trend is with a denim hat—from baseball caps and berets to bucket hats and newsboy caps (as seen below), they’re all winners.
2. The janty
Parisian brand Y/Project’s SS19 show gave denim its most viral moment: janties, the love child of jeans and underwear. In fact Lyst.com reported that since mid-March, the online search for janties, aka junderwear, has increased by a whopping 2,250%. If you want to jump on the bandwagon, make these babies a part of your beach vacay. Throw on a T-shirt or crop top, XXL earrings, and slip into flip flops—we guarantee you it’ll set your Insta on faaiiree.
3. The Sari
When designer Diksha Khanna debuted her distressed denim sari on the runway, it created a stir. The pre-stitched piece was made from scrap denim and treated naturally to give it a uniform, acid-wash appearance. The result: a chic, easy-to-wear wardrobe staple that’s a harmonious blend of traditional and modern sensibilities. If you’re getting one, pair it with an oversized white shirt or a bikini blouse for extra oomph.
4. The bag
For Summer, Chanel gave its classic Flap Bag a cool-blue update. While the brand opted for a shoulder-bag style, keep an eye out for denim bags in different silhouettes—from a clutch or messenger to a bum bag. Apart from making a denim-on-denim #OOTD look fly, do consider pairing one of these with a feminine sundress (white!), a casual jeans-and-a-tee combo, or even workwear.
5. The bikini
We’re in the thick of summer and it’s time to plunge into the world of edgy bikinis and swimsuits. While you pick your regulars (floral- and leopard-print, polka dotted, et al), don’t forget to give denim versions a try for two reasons: a) these hot picks are avant-garde; and b) you can easily turn your pool-side look into a suitable-for-dinner one, just by changing up the bottoms.
6. The Lehenga
In case you needed more proof that denim is no longer limited to legwear, the denim lehenga should do it. Millennial brides and bridesmaids, pay heed. The beauty of this piece lies in its versatility—take it to a pre-wedding function and be talked about (in a good way) for decades to come; then pull it out again to wear with a white T-shirt, crop top, leather jacket, or bikini, for an entirely new look.
