    It was a dark time. A confusing time. A time when pairing two denim pieces together felt abjectly wrong. When a chambray top could only go with a printed bottom, and there was no way you were going to wear your Levi's jean jacket with your skinnies (unless they were black, but even then you hesitated). Then, the clouds parted, enlightenment spread, and we were executing all-denim outfits like it was nothing.

This time around, match your washes, strike a sleek silhouette, and try to go for a pieced-together jumpsuit or dress look. Your new double-denim modus operandi is right this way.
