A New Double Denim Way...With A Skirt!

Oooooh look at this!

And this....

And this...

A fresh new way with double denim! Love it all and I for one will be giving it a go when it warms up a little (a lot). It's a a really easy trend to incorporate the 70s vibe that's coming through too. A column of colour = a slim silhouette. It's a win win all round. 

Double Denim

Karen Millen Bag H&M Denim Shirt H&M Trench Gap Skirt Next Sandals & Sunglasses

I love the idea of incorporating a structured bag to a casual look. I pulled my denim skirt out of the wardrobe at the weekend. It's slightly longer than I recall but it will probably work. A slit or button through is a must! And, who hasn't got a denim shirt in their wardrobe already? Mind you this one from H&M is lush. And what about the sandals from Next? Fringe is huge this season and they're most certainly giving off a whiff of the 70s. Consider them ordered!

Do you fancy giving this a go? Very excited to hear if you're with me on this.

  4. OMG LOVE it! Absolutely love it. And need those sandals in my life ... WHY didn't I read this before I tottered off to Dundrum this morning?

  5. Love that first picture. Reckon I could lose 4 stone by the summer ready to fit in it?
