Denim on Denim

Denim Denim Denim. Here’s a little brief history of denim – denim started during the 1800s, gold miners wanted clothing that were made of material that were durable and tear-free; it travelled from cowboys (1930s), soldiers (both the world wars), the youth (1950s-1980s) and to today’s fashion. At one point, denim was used to portrait teenage rebellion (typical bad boys on a motorcycle, or a hot chic in frayed jeans – you get what I mean right?) in movies and tv shows.

Okay, enough about history, here’s to the outfit part.

Living in London during September has its perks – the weather is perfect to wear a light jacket/coat and short skirts/shorts/dresses without shivering your teeth out.

Since my outfit was overwhelmed with denim, I decided to go light for my shirt rather than a graphic tee even though a graphic tee may look good too with this combo. Because my shirt was a pink-nude, I decided to pair it up with a pink-nude bag as well. I decided to add a belt to the outfit only because my shorts were too loose for me (woops), jk. Cowboy-inspired-looking belts are pretty trendy now (which is expected because denim on denim became trendy as well – cowboys were one of the first ones to wear denim on denim with the black silver-detailed belt).

…Just realised how much history non-fashion related stuff I’ve added to this post….well, it’s good to learn new facts!

I hope you enjoyed this week’s outfit! See you again next week. x
