Kendall Jenner somehow managed to play basketball in head-to-toe jeans and kitten heels in L.A. recently—but let’s not linger on her sports skills. Girl straight-up slayed the game of denim-on-denim dressing in her cropped tank, matching skinnies, and jacket. She even wore a scrunchie in the fabric.
Going double-denim isn’t really a new trend, but it is a style that people find polarizing, either because they’re not big into monochrome, or because they’re worried they’ll come off a little too yeehaw.
Well, forget those fears.
Scroll on to see how Kendall and five other celebs pull off this look with aplomb.
Make it monochrome
Commit to something, and wear the same wash from head-to-toe like Kendall. The key to doing it right? Making sure your whole ensemble comes from the same brand. Pairing everything with a kitten heel à la Kenny makes the whole getup a bit more dressy and interesting.
Clueless about the art of matching? Go with a set, like Hailey Baldwin in her Adidas Originals piece. The best thing about coordinating separates is that you can get three outfits for the price of one: Wear them together for a striking, street-chic all-jean look, or match the jacket with a different dress, or the skirt with a sweater. Either way, this getup is fab with sneakers if you want to make it more low-key, or booties if you’re trying to be fancy.
Go with the flow
When stepping out in double denim, make sure all your pieces have a similar vibe, like the relaxed feel of Heidi Klum’s distressed chambray button-down and straight-leg jeans with a frayed hem. To make your look more eye-catching, accessories are key. TBH, Heidi’s outfit could have been simple, and yes, a bit boring if she hadn’t paired it with the peekaboo of a sexy lace bra and quirky, yet classic brogues.
Go to the dark side
For the most part, raw, deep denim matches and can be just as dressy as wearing all black. Who knows where Victoria Beckham is heading in Paris here, but she looks damn sophisticated and put-together in her belted jacket and wide-leg jeans. To remain polished, keep your accessories understated and timeless.
Just add black
If multiple shades of blue seems daunting, try wearing one black denim piece to switch it up. Chrissy Teigen’s two-tone look is timeless, yet unexpected. An added bonus: Because her jacket is oversized, this outfit feels fresher, and more on-trend than pairing her pants with its standard, more cropped and tailored counterpart.
Break it up
If your jean pieces don’t exactly match, don’t sweat it—just throw on a solid or patterned tee to attract some of the attention, like Mila Kunis in her striped blue shirt. This look is majorly casual, though, so be sure to keep it carefree with low-top sneakers.
