Sweater Weather to Leather Weather

As designers, fashion bloggers, and off-duty models alike have taught us, denim on denim can work! Now we’re not talking about that denim overload look that Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears sported at the 2001 American Music Awards. The current idea of denim on denim is much more refined. By mixing different shades of blue, playing with texture (like adding a chambray shirt to distressed jeans), and adding layers, modern day men and women can keep their ultra denim look cool and fashion forward.
