Fashion Over Fifty: Denim on Denim?

Hello!  This week's Fashion Over Fifty post is a casual outfit where I'm wearing denim on top and on the bottom.  There use to be a old fashion rule where it was stated that one shouldn't wear more than one piece of denim at a time.  However, based on all the fashion photos I've been seeing lately, I think that rule has long been broken.  For me the key to wearing multiple layers of denim is to wear different shades of denim.  In the photo below I'm wearing a darker denim jean with a lighter denim shirt.  I also wore a scarf to break up the sea of blue and add a contrasting color (that and it was below zero outside and I was freezing!).

 Because the thin chambray shirt would have been too cold in this kind of weather, I added a white turtleneck sweater underneath for extra warmth.
 My chambray shirt actually has little white polka dots on it, which also helps to break up that all denim look by bringing in a pattern and some whimsy.
 For footwear, I wore these mid heel brown leather shoes from Famous Footwear.  I love these shoes because they are a bit dressy and have a little heel, yet, the treads on the bottom are perfect for walking on our icy side walks that we have here in Wisconsin.

Have a great day! Amy


  1. Those shoes look really cute and comfy, too! And I definitely wear denim on denim, as long as they are two different colors!

  2. Stopping by from Style Sessions! Such a great outfit, I love the denim on denim look.
