In my last DENIM – Today’s Inspiration post  I said how much I love wearing denim and I shared with you some of my favorite inspiration photos. I always wanted to recreate the same double denim look that Rihanna was wearing a couple of months ago. (excluding the leather cap)

I like the balance of the loose, relaxed shirt in a light shade of denim and fitted slightly distressed pencil skirt. I think it’s essential to know proportions when you are trying to pull off the double denim look.

The key to double denim look which is also called the Canadian tuxedo, is not to show the cleavage and legs at the same time. Also, try to look for a contrast in colors, experiment with different shades and wash. You may also break the denim with different prints and bright colors.

Accessorize it with statement pieces if you want to dress it up, consider stone earrings, crystal or floral necklaces in technicolor and the mix of  classic bangles in different hues.

How do pair your double denim look? Any thoughts on my recreated Rihanna look? :)
