Denim on Denim

Denim on denim is a controversial topic in the fashion world. The whole matchy-matchy thing just became popular – two piece dresses are in. I think Kim Kardashian had something to do with this. She was photographed a number of times, over the last several months, wearing solid high-waisted skirts and matching crop tops. Now you can find matching two piece outfits just about anywhere. Anyway, when it comes to denim, if you are still warming up to the idea, try it first with contrasting washes. Go for a white top and a dark pant or something along the lines of the ensemble photographed below.


When I came across this denim peplum top while perusing Gap’s online store, I had to have it! Does that surprise you?! Peplum this, peplum that…I must admit that I was stumped, at first, when deciding what to pair it with. I am not a big fan of khaki and I do not own the right winter white. Although a skirt would have worked, if you cannot already tell, I am truly a pants and a top kind of girl. So, I styled this “deplum” shirt with my favorite distressed jeans – good thing they were just the right hue. To keep it simple, I accessorized with a statement necklace, comprised of a neutral color scheme, so that my nude pumps and brown purse would tie things together nicely. Finally, for a little pop of color, I wore my orange cat eye sunnies.
