Styling Double Denim

Words: @oliverinstead • Photo: David

Let me just start off by pointing out that I know double denim isn’t everyone’s cuppa. But it’s definitely mine, and here’s why : it’s an instant statement.

Co-ords or head-to-toe *inserts a colour / pattern / material* just seem to turn heads, even though I’m not sure if it’s even that big of deal, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing because style is about expressing who you are without having to speak, and double denim never fails to accomplish that.


So start off, let’s take a minute to appreciate this trucker jacket.

double-denim-suede-and-symphony-001I absolutely love it.

If you follow me on Instagram (@oliverinstead), you probably would’ve caught a glimpse of it in a few of my recent Stories because it’s literally all I wear these days. It’s oversized, which means a very generous fit, which means it’s super comfy to wear – especially during the summer when you want to look and feel cool at the same time.


Same stories with the Topman skinnies – which I’m sure have been sitting in my wardrobe since before I went on my trip to Southeast Asia – the rips are perfect for the much-needed airflow, and the distressed details add a few cool-points.


To finish off the look, I’m wearing some good ol’ Docs. Again, these were gifted to me by Scott from All Sole last year.

Including when I was in Copenhagen in December last year – if you want to see the five things I learned about Copenhagen, check out my Travel Tuesday post.


How about you? Are you a fan of double denim… or can you not stand it? Either way, tell me how do you like to style your outfit to make sure it stands out and speaks you, and I shall see you in my next post!!

    I LOVE double denim. Although I usually team my blue denim jacket with black denim jeans. I might have to try out the all blue next time! Love your outfit 🙂

      Thanks Olivia! I’m really feeling denim recently… It just screams summer, even though we’re not having much of a summery weather atm!
