Why is it the simple things that seem to be so hard? Bed head locks, a smudged smokey eye… and denin on denim. I see it everywhere (most recently at J.Crew this season) and it’s something that works all the time (no snow or sleet can stop it) but it’s not always easy to get it right.

There have been maybe a few times that my denim mix has looked a little more farmer than fashion editor and it all comes down to perfecting the mix.

So, what’s a girl to do?

– If you’re feeling like you are on denim overload, add a non-denim layer, like a leather vest or jacket.
– To kick the farmer feeling, go for a pair of heels (the ones here are Gianvito Rossi).
– Layer it on. Here we have overalls, a denim shirt and a denim vest. The more denim, the merrier.
– Try a total look and do all the same color denim (if you’re feeling a little less bold, mix dark and light).

It’s an art really. Have you mastered it?
