Denim works overtime
At first we passed on the double-denim trend. (What?s next? Mullets?) Then it grew on us. Who knew the woodsman look could work with heels?
??But we?re the first to admit it: That chambray shirt should not go on a date with your boyfriend jeans. Here?s how to wear and pair your fall denim:
?Your dark-rinse chambray top Pair it with J.Crew?s superskinny toothpick jean in the season?s de rigueur shade--medium gray. Or go even dressier with this unexpected beaded version. 900 N. Michigan Ave.; 312-751-2739 or jcrew.com
Your distressed jeans Give them a jolt of punk flair with Current/Elliott?s Soho Jacket. The heavy hardware and asymmetrically placed zipper say: I just parked my Harley outside. Barneys New York, 15 E. Oak St.; 312-587-1700 or barneys.com
?Your jeggings Top them with Rag & Bone's super-comfy jean jacket. Soft wool sleeves and a hood do the perfect amount of layering, so you don?t have to. Sofia, 100 E. Walton St.; 312-640-0878 or sofialivelovely.com
Your new denim uniform Dive into the trend with a ladylike, quilted denim set. No one will ever accuse you of the classic double-denim pitfall: looking like you?ve stepped out of a Sears Portrait Studio, circa 1990. Pixie Market; pixiemarket.com
