Omiru's May 2012 Lookbook: How to Wear Denim on Denim
This look is part of Omiru’s May 2012 Lookbook series, which builds upon our 16-Piece May 2012 Capsule Wardrobe.  See more information about this look.

As you pull your jeans out of the closet for the umpteenth time, don’t you long for a way to wear them that’s fresh and new?  Apropos for this season of growth and renewal, we turn what was old new again.  By pairing the American Traditional classic chambray shirt with your working jeans, you get a look that’s at once familiar and new.  Here’s how to get the look:

1. Start with your double denim foundation: a chambray shirt worn over a pair of denim jeans.  The key to getting this look right is to choose two very different shades of denim; pair a lighter wash with a darker one.  Anything else will look like a denim suit.
2. Toss on a biker jacket.  What we love about this jacket is that it’s tough yet feminine - it gives the look an edge, but in a friendly way.
3. With skinny pants, you have a choice of footwear.  We chose a heeled bootie to elongate the leg. 
4. Grab your sunglasses and a brightly colored handbag (red really pops against the blues and neutrals) and go out and meet the day!
