What do Kate Hudson, Gisele Bündchen, Kylie Jenner, and Mindy Kaling have in common? Besides, of course, the fact that they’re all women with enviable careers (if not mega-powerful families). As of late, they have all been spotted wearing combinations of denim on denim, ranging from the subtly uncoordinated to high-contrast pairings, with distinctly neutral accessories in tow. It’s a look that’s cool, timeless, and impossibly easy to pull off, especially for daytime.
Mindy opted to let her high-rise J Brand Maria jeans, in their inky After Dark wash, shine against her M2Malletier mini bag and Converse sneakers, while longtime denim devotee Gisele showcased effortless airport style, keeping things simple with black jeans and paisley-print tote. Fashion-forward Kylie dressed up her J. Crew chambray shirt with Jaide Clothing’s distressed pencil skirt, Jeffrey Campbell Elphaba booties, and a double whammy of trendy fur: 3.1 Phillip Lim’s Depeche shoulder bag (which is currently sold out) plus Fendi’s Monster charm.
But it’s Kate Hudson who really nailed the look in my eyes, thanks to her flight-ready mash-up of her DSquared2 shirt, Paige Denim Edgemont jeans, and peanut-hued MICHAEL Michael Kors Riley satchel. What about you: what’s your favorite way to simultaneously multiply your denim and keep things neutral?
