It’s definitely feeling more like Fall, especially here in Paris (I arrived yesterday. Yay!).
One great transitional look is denim on denim. The Autumnal ensemble provides coverage, but nothing overwhelming–and once the temps truly dip, you can throw a faux fur coat or wool topper over your look for a polished aura.
At any rate, let’s take a quick look at how you readers are already rocking this trend.
My Parisian homegirl Fatou of the site BlackBeautyBag.com showed how to add a chic coat to the combo to make it cold weather ready.
Laeticia, a Canadian correspondent for multicultural mag Ghubar, also offered a casual take with a light colored trench.
Omolehinwa of the blog Styled by Kalack uplifted an all denim look with a statement necklace, bag, and red simple sandals.
Diane of LifeandDimSum’s shoes are obscured in the grass, but her oversized tote is hard to miss!
Sing of the blog SingatureStyle.Blogspot.com wrote, “I love denim on denim! It’s a great look with sandals in the Summer, with pumps in the Fall, and with boots in the Winter. I’ve rocked it three ways in the attached photo.”
And we had a whole slew of Instagram submissions! There were actually more than 50 new pictures sent in, so I only chose a handful…
Christian aka @TheBarbieFication let her bright, curly locks do the talking, and added in a few fun elements like cross earrings, wedges, and a statement bag.
@DMoDChic rocked her Texas Tuxedo with a red and black clutch and platform heels.
Was @HomegurlHeather doing a photo shoot when she snapped this picture? No matter. I’m loving her patchwork jeans.
@A_MsJackson chose a short sleeved top with dark, form fitting skinnies.
@CharlieBrianna was hiding behind a fence, but nothing could obscure her hot look!
@Maryam_Adebisi played with proportions with shorts, tights, and a jacket, and added a bowtie for good measure.
Shorts were also on the menu for Sherry, who snapped a few selfies in the bathroom in cut offs and sturdy boots.
@MsManche is our first skirt submission! She offset her ensemble with chunky chains and an eye catching hat.
Aisha aka @JadanJacob wore Denim on Denim for her birthday, and served with a few hot accessories, including silver lace ups and a Gucci clutch. I’ll take them all, please!
@Shuri_Princess opted for a light wash and metallic oxfords.
Natural Hair and Fashion Blogger for LuvtoBNatural.com, Toia, worked a fedora and a matching belt.
How adorable does Clipp of the blog www.shairstyl3.blogspot.com look in her denim skirt? Loving this!
A sultry stare added extra depth to Francesca’s interpretation.
Monica of the blog AwedByMonica.blogspot.com worked in a few neon accessories and white heels.
@ReeseMarcelle made her ensemble pop with yellow flats and a statement necklace.
@KadesMode offered a bit of animal instinct with leopard printed booties and a fierce haircut.
@IceGold_ of the blog IceontheGold.com worked a look with red sandals.
Red lips and red pumps made @IiamKelz ‘s outfit pop.
Kasidy wore fun boots with her look.
Tamra Nicole explored different silhouettes, slipping on a pair of bell bottom jeans with a button down. And can we get into that Proenza Schouler bag?
@DivasnDollsBree was one of the few submissions with deconstructed denim. Work!
@Fashionea and her friend looked cute in their chambray looks.
Jacqueline sent in a group shot, but wrote, “I bet you can guess which one is me;)”
@ShyShy43 buttoned her blouse to the hilt, and slipped on a pair of dark denim jeans.
Pretty, pretty! I really loved @TheQueenEsmari‘s take.
And Asia from the blog TotalFashionista.com shut it down with mirrored shades and patterned lace up sandals.
We had a few guys!
Christopher sent it two pix. Both looks were so cute, I couldn’t choose!
Brandon accessorized a Topshop shirt and Zara shorts with Obey sneakers and a Profound Aesthetic Co hat.
@FarrarTwins1 showed his allegiance to Louis Vuitton with a Damier print belt and matching sneakers.
And lastly, Kendall struck a pose with a half tucked shirt and gold chains.
That wasn’t even everything, but hope that gives you a taste!
Which look speaks to you?
Next week, we’ll take a look at how you guys wear plaid! Be sure to send in your pix to firstname.lastname@example.org.
*To jog your memory, this is how I wear denim on denim.
