Denim on Denim

Denim on Denim

Oh Tokyo, we are so close to Spring! 

I feel like my soul is revived a bit…after a gloomy, rainy, cold and overall miserable week. 

While it’s still not fully spring here in Tokyo, I can tell we’re getting there with the intermittent rise in temperatures touching close to 20 degrees. 

For all that, I am absolutely ready to cache away my winter wear until next winter.

 I couldn’t resist this rare occasion of a clear blue sky and the sun beaming bright to fulfill my eternal sartorial love of pairing denim with white. 

I am not one to cave in fully on the denim-on-denim only because I find it harder to pull off than what it actually seems, particularly when you don’t have the right denim wash to pair together – but for one of the warmest days so far in the year I thought of testing it out. 

Time after time, the double denim fad is seen to resurface and this coming spring season sure is indifferent. It is true, that double denim can be controversial but will never truly go out of fashion. 

As a newbie testing the grounds out on a decade over old style, I went for a casual yet chic look pairing my oversized denim jacket with a figure hugging denim skirt – both the denim washes aren’t matchy-matchy but does the trick. 

Acclimating to the warmer days, I can foresee this silhouette of a tight fit skirt and oversized throw on jacket becoming my go-too. 

Now just hoping that the weather swifts its way to spring weather ASAP so that we can bid farewell to hibernation!

      I couldn’t agree more. It’s nice to trade your trusty jeans with a girly denim skirt once in a while! 🙂

    My husband always wants me to wear the DENIM ON DENIM look – but I never do because I find it just so dang uncomfortable LOL!

    I wear a lot of denim – mainly denim jeans to be honest! I do have a denim jacket too but I never wear it with other denim – I guess, like you say, you have to get the right combination for it to work.

      I was always more of a denim jeans girl than a denim jacket. But now I’ve grown to equally love them. Thanks so much for reading! ☺

    This look is great! I am not a huge fan of denim on denim, but this works since it has something else in there, too. I can’t wait for spring to fully hit here!

    I love that your look is both chic and casual. The skirt pairs really nicely with the top and shoes, bringing it all together. I’m excited to add some spring to my wardrobe too!

    I rarely wear a skirt, but I have to admit after seeing how cute this outfit is, I would not mind trying it. I love everything.

    I just love the versatility of denim! I can’t believe the pointy shoes are back! I loved this trend back in the 2000’s I remember everyone wearing them in Paris on my trip to Europe! I can’t wait to see more!
