All Over Denim: Savvy or Not?

Usually I when wear denim, I will wear only one piece out of the whole outfit, like the images above. (via style.com) However, I have learned there is a new denim trend in town. Apparently, allover denim for the whole outfit is no long a fashion faux pas.
Ralph Lauren collection embraces allover denim with open arms. (images via style.com)
While web shopping, I see mix and match denim pieces of differ colors and elements.

Jean Paul Gaultier also welcome allover denim with open arms. Years ago, I purchased a Moschino denim top and bottom outfit which I have worn as separates. Now, I guess it is now mode du jour to wear them together uh.....

I have not paired same color denim together but I have paired gray denim jacket with dark blue jeans for a few months now. Can SG predict trend or what?! I now still slightly iffy about this allover denim trend but as I adore denim anything, I will try to mix and match in future outfits. What about you, will you wear denim top, or jacket with denim bottoms? Is it savvy to you?

  3. SG, you can definitely predict trends.:-) Those denim ensembles are awesome. I never thought that all-over denims can look this fabulous.

  5. I love the second image from the Stella McCartney S/S 10 show.

  6. I could see if the colors were different - very different - but no, not a whole outfit of the same shade.

    Have a great week, my friend!

  7. It's a case by case basis, some people wear it better than others. I don't consider simple solid black jeans a "denim", so to me that's fine to pair with another denim piece. I really like the ralph lauren look on the right though.

  8. Usually, I'm not a fan of such combo, but I like the styles of those Gautier's creations!

  9. I don't like the all over denim look- esp if it's the same shade or really close and then clash. That being said, these Ralph Lauren looks work though!

  10. I'm okay with all-over denim, but I prefer a completely mismatched look. Matching my jeans to my jacket somehow shrieks "High School" to me!

  12. Great outfits and lots of stuff to think about... I do NOT like the upper right picture of the skirt- looks like 1994!!! Most others I liked though, I think denim on denim either works or just doesn't. Love this post!

  13. I say denim on denim only if each was a completely different shade.

  14. Great looks, but I'm not sure if I can pull off the multi-pieces of denim look, myself!

  15. I love denim! maybe not head to toe..

  16. I am a believer in one piece of denim at a time. But to each their own.;-) Happy 2010!

  17. LOL I remember spotting a pic of Hayden P in June, I think it was my 4th post ever, looks like the costume stylist on Heroes new what was coming!
    Hope you had a great weekend!

  18. dare i say i am over denim except for jeans?

    thanks for coming by my lil ol blog ... off to explore yours!

  19. I love how you've paired the different color denim. I'm unsure if I'd be willing to wear all denim, all the same color.

    p.s. I just received my watch today. It's wonderful! Thank you so much :)

  20. I think I'm going to stick with one denim piece at a time. But you're right, if anyone is going to give this trend a whirl, please please please make sure the denims are differnt colors!

  21. I predict Denim makes a HUGE comeback in 2010!

  22. i've always been a big fan (when it's done right) great spotlight :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. i really don't like the denim-on-denim look, although the bleached denim jacket on black jeans looked pretty good. :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm digging the first photo.. and possibly the third.. but I've always heard... denim with denim is a fashion faux pas...... who started that denim was a faux pas?

  25. I've worn black or grey denim with a blue jacket...

  26. A one-piece denim dress would be cute, or different colored denim on top & bottom, but not matching denim top & bottom. No, not for me.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I dont know if I could rock it. I'd try though.

  28. Love your new blog look! Hehe...yes, you can predict the trends. :D I have never mixed or wore more than one denim item at the same time before but it is fun to experiment!

    P.S I think you're right about the bad things happening in 3 thing. Def staying away from the car!

  29. That's a deal breaker for me. The hubs calls people that sport denim head to toe Denim Dans. Ah ha ha

  30. Ugh no thanks, particularly if it's the same shade! I would only do this if it were very different colors of denim (colors, not shades) or if it were a dress or overall situation. It's just too 80s for me and not the good parts of the 80s style!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I don't think I will be able to rock this look.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I am not a fan of too much denim in one outfit, but I love the way it is worn at the Stella McCartney show!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yea, definitely NOT a fan of denim on denim. Kudos though to those who can pull off the look successfully though. For me, I just don't look good. I like that studded denim vest from Shopbop though!

    xo, Becs

  34. I'm going to have to say no to all over denim. Unless you're a cowboy, of course. Then it's okay. :-)

    Thanks for adding me to your blogroll! You're on mine as well.

  35. I can't do all over denim after remember that really bad red carpet appearance by Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears circa 2001-ish! But, I do love denim, so some of it is ok!

    ReplyDelete
  36. all over denim reminds me of the 90's (or was it the 80's), so i struggle with that a LOT! i don't think i can do it, but more power to those that do. i guess. a;haahhaha

  37. It could work. I actually, really like the Ralph Lauren outfit (on the right).
