A Day in Double Denim

leave a comment »


It took some nerve. Yesterday, I spent the full day in Double Denim.  Gap denim shirt and Topshop dark skinny cropped jeans were chosen as an updated version of the original jacket and jeans combo.  And the reaction was divided to say the least.

First part of the day was to brave ‘Dress down Friday’ at work.  As predicted, I got a lot of  ‘Yee Ha Cowgirl’…. Original.  Other comments included; ‘unique’ (polite way to say weird?) and one colleague declared that this look was’ not for beginners’.  Maybe the brogues didn’t help, but this definitely felt quite a masculine look – and that from someone whom 20% of their wardrobe is menswear.

On deciding to venture out after work for a drink in my head to toe denim, I exchanged my black brogues for some tan loafers and threw on a blazer.  Comments during the evening were much kinder than those I had experienced so far.  Girls seemed to really like the denim shirt, so much so, three asked me where I had bought it from while I was retouching my mascara in the ladies.

Most were in agreement that while denim was well and truly back to stay, it is much more accessible worn in just one piece. I have to agree.  The Gap denim shirt was a complete success. I’m already unsure how I ever lived without it and can’t wait to throw it over a floral playsuit come spring.
