Street Style: It Goes Down in the Denim

Keeping up with the latest fashion trends in the world of men is challenging. Are boot cut jeans still in? (No.) Should you rock those Sperry’s with Nike crew socks? (No.) Is it acceptable to wear navy on black this year? (Honestly, who knows.) These questions and more are the ones that demand answers from some of the best dressed people on campus. So that’s what we are doing. Regardless of your avor for fashion, we are here to help boost your clout to the next level.

Denim has come back in full storm to the trending fashion markets, and honestly, did it ever even leave? Nothing compares to a good pair of jeans that not only t you right, but really stand out among the plethora of jeans and denim already out there.

The best way to show o the cool pieces of denim you have is to wear it all at once! Denim on denim is de nitely hot right now and it certainly brings back the 90’s/early 2000’s nostalgic feel; a time of that retro modern era where fashion really started to explore its boundaries.

For this look, I decided to incorporate another trend into the denim on denim style by pairing a navy blue turtleneck with a light washed distressed jean jacket, and blue skinny jeans, which gives o an overall monochromatic palette. I’m really channeling the 90’s in this t, but do me a favor and make sure to leave the gold chain in the 90’s. Too much air and you’ll end up looking like that meme of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

When I typically pair denim on denim, I love to play around with di erent colors and hues of denim to achieve that monochromatic look. With all the crazy and colorful combinations out in the world of fashion right now, sometimes switching it up for a simpler color scheme provides you with more chances to add a statement color piece. Not only that, but the turtleneck de nitely ts the fall cool weather, and adds a solid base to highlight the distressing of the jacket.

I decided to pair this look with a pair of high-top Converse with my jeans rolled up to give it that casual look. The combination of the turtleneck and my favorite pair of Ray Bans help to elevate the look to give o a more posh, but an easy college street look that isn’t too over-the-top. The key to fashion sometimes is looking great without looking like you had to wake up at 6 a.m. to perfect your out t. Other suggestions for shoes that I would pair this out t with would be my Vans or my Adidas Stan Smith originals.
