Sydne went with a ‘70s vibe for her look by slipping into this season’s flare trend. She paired her jeans with a denim shirt, and then added a vintage-inspired bag and gold jewelry.

One quick tip on how to do denim on denim? Use the different washes to your advantage. Since dark colors are more slimming try darker jeans and a lighter top.

Another way to wear denim on denim is to break up the monochrome with a pop of color, like Haley (Vest Dressed). Haley paired medium wash jeans with a multi-washed chambray shirt on top.

Pops of color add some flavor to your Canadian tuxedo. She added splashes of purple accessories through her hat, sunglasses and purse.

If you are a bit nervous to go with double jean, start by pairing different shades and types of denim together. White denim with a jean jacket is a good start as well as black jeans and a chambray shirt. This will help you ease into the trend and open your eyes to how much fun it is to wear!
