It's honestly been ages since double denim was considered a heinous fashion crime. After all, what's a faux pas these days, anyway? We'd like to think that, just maybe, if then-couple Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake showed up on the red carpet in those iconic matchy getups today instead of 18 years ago, they might have gotten off the hook a whole lot easier. We don't know for sure. The possibilities are endless.
Arguably the head monarch of maong, Liz Uy is excellent at churning out looks that make you want to pile on every pair of Sevens or Wranglers you have within close, immediate reach. Her current favorite thing is pairing each stellar outfit with a curation of optic white boots.
Par example, here she is sitting front row at a Milan runway show giving every non-denim suit in the vicinity a run for its money. Perhaps rodeo threads are the new crisp tailoring.
Since we laid eyes on this photo, we haven't been able to stop thinking about how Marie Lozano's tucked her boxy jean jacket in the way you'd normally style an ordinary shirt. If you're now aching to try it for yourself, same.
See, even Kendall Jenner's on the exact same agenda, albeit in white and cream. Also, copying that very Old Hollywood retro headscarf trick, stat.
Fresh faced Claudia Barretto may be young, but she sure knows her sartorial stuff. A jean version of the cult fave leather moto jacket proves the best backdrop for a delicate spray of carefully leveled gold medallion necklaces and stunning, smoky metallic eyes.
Texture reigns in this fashion week OOTD snap courtesy of Singaporean entrepreneur Yoyo Cao. The intricate runs and rivets on her Mugler tux have us obsessed.
Wear your stripes! Renee de Guzman's linear co-ords are super sailor cute. Style undone with a bralette or closed up to give the illusion of a minidress, then sling a microscopic Jacquemus purse across your torso sans worrying about what you can carry in it. Packing extra extra extra light is a life skill to be mastered, ladies.
Outspoken solo K-pop star Sunmi is positively a force to be reckoned with—don't let the demure, buttoned-up, goody-goody Gucci look fool you, but do let it coerce you into copping it from top to toe.
Jess Wilson soaks up the sizzling Spanish sun in a simple yet oddly magnetic 'fit. Is it the battered cap-toed flats? The nonchalant, slightly too-long pant legs? Whatever it is, it's peak effortless, and we're charmed.
Nobody said double denim had to exclusively stay within the azure spectrum. Jessica Jung makes her stand pretty in pink, ravishing in rose, and beautiful in blush.
The '90s kids are livin' it up again courtesy of a younger generation enamored with their brand of casual style. Street smart Bea Marin joins the throwback movement, turning au courant (or, alternately, Back to the Future) via sci-fi sunnies. What goes around really does come back around.
Topping off like a literal, actual queen involves an adorable denim pageboy cap, according to Pia Wurtzbach. Crowning glory indeed. Afterwards, slip into your Chanel slides while sipping on an espresso, no big deal.
Striking white contrast stitching and large, cargo inspired pockets update Julia Barretto's no-brainer mini-and-jacket combo for the now.
Mari Jasmine refuses to shy away from the sweet, fun embroidered floral shorts we all donned at some point in the innocence of childhood. We're on her side of the playground.
The signature navy tones of Dior's ubiquitous Oblique patterned Saddle look fantastic against Sarah Lahbati's blue jean pool. It's satisfyingly chameleonic.
Months later and we're still thinking of that cropped, leopard print denim jacket Kelsey Merritt walked a perky pup in for her photoshoot with the New York Post.
Traveling? We're certainly not against a thigh-high boot and a fabulously shaggy bit of faux fur. Put on a (Broadway) show like Camille Co did in the Big Apple.
Laureen Uy's caught the Moschino bug, too. We've already mentioned that the basic, figure-skimming tank top is back, so toss one on to go under your sparkly logo splash.
You can pare things down a notch, too. Statements come a tad subtler via cool cutout details and raw-edged two tone jeans.
Dainty is doable here, girly girls! Laureen's abundance of frothy ruffles makes all the difference.
A classic formula your very own cool mom probably relied on in her youth, care of Marie von Behrens: a black sports (or band!) tee, big jacket, frayed hems, and white kicks. Timeless cool.
Getting crazy crafty is highly encouraged, says Blanca Miro. Tie dye's hot this summer, so feel free to conduct any number of DIY experiments. Flick on a haphazard shower of paint splatters while you're at it.
We usually see this sort of knotted top in easy breezy linen. Isn't Maria Bernad's jean version beyond refreshing? Team with funky flared Levi's, a seashell choker, chain belt, and Gucci horsebit mules to channel modern Woodstock chic. Far out.
Perfect pair Nicole Andersson and Louis Vuitton are bringing you the fab little denim skirt suit of your dreams. Zoom in on that monogrammed panel, those studs, the fuzzy collar, and—wait for it—her mega covetable New Wave bag.
Of course, if your true heart's desire is to go completely nuts, Anne Curtis is your #1 gal. One of the zany stage outfits she wore on her Anne Kulit concert tour consisted of fringed, thigh-skimming denim boots, denim Daisy Dukes, and a strapless denim bustier dress boasting a fray of raw edges and enormous pearl buttons. Talk about royal jeans. All the better to munch on a stick of fishbol in.
