Get The Look: Casey Labow Does Denim-On-Denim
Casey Labow, who stars in Skateland with Ms. Ashley Greene, showed up to Sundance wearing an all-denim ensemble. People are always advising that you pick two different shades of denim to avoid the canadian tuxedo look. But somehow Ms. Labow makes this work. If you look closely, you can tell that the two denim pieces in question are actually different shades, just different enough to look intentional, and I think that is the key. Some more tips on wearing denim-on-denim:
* Accessorize with neutrals in the brown family, which give a much warmer feel against denim than black would.
* If you aren’t comfortable with Casey’s similarly colored denim pieces, go for two different washes, and break them up with a belt.
* A denim vest is a great alternative to a shirt for a more subtle look with the same overall feel.
I went with a light wash, but still notably different, jean and a worn denim shirt. Wearing the shirt unbuttoned reveals a basic white v-neck, which breaks up all the blue. I would look for a long, almost tunic-length tee just to balance the proportions of the outfit. A layered necklace gives a personalized look, while furry boots and a feathered fedora add warmth. The total for this look rings in at $152. 00.
What Do You Think?
Would you wear denim on denim? Do you think this trend will last, or will it just rush back into obscurity with sleeveless flannel? I’d love to hear from you!
