what to wear with denim
MAJOR BWA HA HA HA HA HA’s ahead. Prepare to spit whatever you are drinking.
I have a confession. I hate the 1980s.
Born in the middle of the decade I’m too young to remember any of its culture, instead preferring endless memories of Thomas The Tank Engine. That may be a lie actually, I do remember part of the culture. I remember perms. I remember mullets. I remember a plethora of crimes committed against my young eyes by baby boomers who should have known better (though that generation aren’t exactly known for getting anything right). And amongst those heinous crimes which aided the development of my acute sense of loathing all things 80’s is double denim.
Which brings me to some terrible news dear readers: double denim is back.
But there’s hope. There’s hope that we’ve caught it soon enough. There’s hope that we can show people the error of their ways before double denim spreads. And Fashionising.com is going to lead the charge: normally fully behind the majority of fashion trends and micro-trends, we’re labelling the double denim fashion trend the major faux pas amongst all of 2009’s fashion trends and 2010’s fashion trends.
I fear its true – double denim IS back. Even in the new True Religion magazine ads, you’ll see denim jackets paired with jeans or shorts. What’s your take on the new trend?
Every year when the holiday parties roll around, there is one thing on my mind immediately: What to wear?
As usual, when I walk into room, I see the usual sea of women dressed in the black-pants-red-blouse ensemble. And, even if they pull it off without looking matronly, I have always vowed never to be that girl. Thanks to DenimBlog’s friends over at Bluefly, eLuxury and Revolve Clothing, I’ve put together a few ideas to cover most of our bases this year. Best of all, everything is on sale! Get it while you can…
For an office party look, why not wear this amazing Earnest Sewn “Olivia” High Waisted & Waxed Black Denim Skirt as your main look? Here are some ideas to pair it with, like a fabulous Alexander Wang Top and a Christian Louboutin Pump:
Need the perfect jean for your Dressed up Holiday Sit Down Dinners and for those dessert laden meals? Definitely check out the Genetic Denim “Carb Stretch” Slim Skinny jean for a simple and chic look. Paired with just the right items, like this Cole Haan Clutch, no one will notice if you sneak an extra ginger snap!
And, lastly, celebrate your New Year’s Eve Party looking your best. Pretty much every girl I know loves wearing Rich and Skinny–the Bellissima Jean is a nice way to doll yourself up as you ring in 2009. Plus, it looks amazing with just about anything, including these Miu Miu Heels and this Proenza Schouler Top.
What do you think? What are you going to be wearing to your favorite holiday events this year? Are you making denim the centerpiece?
John McCain stated, with dignity,“The American people have spoken, and they have spoken clearly.”
In just 11 weeks, Obama will place his hand on a Bible and swear to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution.” No president since John Kennedy or Harry Truman will come into office facing graver crises.
Obama’s triumph was due to the largest, best organized and most energetic grassroots campaign in American political history.
Obama is only the third Democrat since Franklin Roosevelt to win the White House with more than 50 percent of the vote.
No matter where you stand politically, this was a great moment in history and I am proud to have experienced it. If you would like to show your support for our new President Elect, Barack Obama, buy any of these shirts and many more here.
