For some it’s a controversial combo, but denim on denim isn’t something I’ve ever shied away from. Increasingly people are choosing not to follow the “rules” of fashion, but more importantly we’re wearing what makes us feel good. It’s so important to have your own sense of style – I like to think of mine as quite eclectic. Fashion is a way to express myself and be creative. I don’t take myself too seriously and I love mixing things up – and denim makes up a big part of my quirky look!
I’ve been lucky enough to pick up a fair few pairs of Levi 501s in Barnardo’s. You’ll pay a fraction of the cost for the same pair in a vintage shop, let alone brand new. You’ll need to have a rummage in the men’s section for sure – break those fashion ‘rules’, remember! I’ve found my more unique vintage denim pieces like 80’s pantaloon-style or denim culottes in vintage shops.
