21 Celebrities Who Have Nailed The Denim-on-Denim Trend

denim on denim trend

Please welcome the newcomer to the monochromatic look: denim. While the denim-on-denim trend might evoke cringeworthy memories of Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake's infamous red carpet moment, when done correctly, it can be super stylish. Just look to style stars like Ashley Graham and Priyanka Chopra for inspiration. They've been on the trend for awhile now, turning baggy jean jackets into dresses and pairing unexpected pieces to create cool and sophisticated looks.

These outfits are incredibly versatile and effortless — not to mention, wearing all denim is a great way to transition from summer to fall fashion since it's all about layering. You can stack jean jackets, denim vests and classic chambray shirts over just about anything. Plus, you don't have to perfectly match the washes or styles of the separates you choose to layer. Take a look at how these stars have taken the denim-on-denim trend and made it fashion.

Ashley Graham

The model paired thigh-high black boots with a longer denim jacket, belted at the waist like a dress to accentuate her famous curves. It's a daring look, for sure, but a genius way to transition into cooler weather.

Priyanka Chopra

If Graham's pantless look is too much for you, take some inspiration from Priyanka Chopra. The actress paired a denim jacket with a denim skirt for a more feminine take on the Canadian tuxedo.
