They might have predicted hard pants are dead, but in fact the opposite is true.

Jeans are back baby and this time let’s make it double denim.

It’s hard to think of denim-on-denim without having flashbacks of the epic denim-on-denim looks Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake rocked 20 years ago.

Now, all-denim looks are back again (and they’re slated to be the hottest trend this summer). Here are three fashionable ways to style the trend in 2023.

Work-Appropriate Canadian Tuxedo

Wide-legged, ankle-grazing dark denim jeans, when paired with a dark denim blazer, create the perfect work-approved suit.

Opt for a slim cut blazer to balance the bagginess of the jeans.

Style with a button-up shirt in a lighter-wash denim to add variety and color while still maintaining the business vibe.

An elegant pocketbook and heels round out and further elevate the look.

Denim-On-Denim Monochrome Style

While denim-on-denim is possible in any number of ways, pairing similar color washes together (to create a monochrome look) is a super current way to style the trend.

A cool way to break up a top and bottom of the same wash is with the addition of a dark denim belt. It serves to separate the pieces as well as counterbalance the black accessories.

The easiest way to elevate shorts from an around-the-house look to an outfit worthy for a night out is by pairing them with a classic pair of heels (see my pick of the sexiest heels here).

If you desire a sportier look, simply swap the heels for tennis shoes and the pocketbook for a small backpack.

Double Denim Not Enough? Triple Denim if You Dare

The last of the looks features triple denim in a modern blue wash.

The trick here is, if you’re going for an oversized and boxy style on the top, keep the bottoms more fitted, such as with these fitted denim capris, to balance the proportions.
