Do…

  • Wear denim shades that flatter your body – lighter shades draw attention and darker shades are more slimming.
  • If going for a distressed denim look, opt for only one piece, instead of a head-to-toe outfit.
  • Reach for denim pieces that fit your body and show off your silhouette. Baggy styles look dated and are unflattering.
  • Invest in a good pair of jeans. Your favourite shape and style is the core of any double-denim look, A simple shirt tucked into your favourite trousers is effortlessly chic.
  • Bag a denim jacket early in spring – it will become your saviour throw-on piece come summer.

Don't…

  • Be afraid to step out of your comfort zone – do experiment with styles you wouldn’t normally go for.
  • Wear denim accessories, this will make your outfit look too over-the-top and dated.
  • Accessorise with cowboy boots, or you will look like you are going to a fancy-dress party – not a good appearance.
  • Mix too many shades – two is the maximum.
  • Go for double denim the same day as your partner wears it. You’ll end up looking like Justin and Britney from the Nineties.
