So let's get this straight, double denim is a love or hate trend and for me it's a 100% yes please! I've mentioned before about my love for the double D (that sounded a little naughty) look and I'm going to talk about it in more depth because it grinds my gears way more than it probably should, not double denim itself but something that tends to come along with it...
A week ago during an #fbloggers chat on Twitter there were major talks about 'fashion rules' and how people live by certain ones, which for starters made me a little sad. People were saying about how they would never wear this and never wear that and I sat there thinking, ok, fair play you're not currently into that trend but I said the same thing about sandals and look whats on my feet people, sandals! I know it's easy to say you'd never wear something but just hold on ladies and gents, people change. Living by certain rules isn't the way to go and you shouldn't hold yourself back when you may think 'oh, she looks great in those socks and trainers but I said I'd never wear that so I can't'... No, wear what you want and don't let a decision you made previously determine that.
On said Twitter chat a lot of people responded to the question 'do you have any fashion rules?' with a flurry of 'I WOULD NEVER WEAR DOUBLE DENIM!!'. I sat there in my denim shirt and pants feeling proud of myself for wearing something a majority of people somewhat despised. One girl even said 'people who wear double denim have no fashion sense, I would never be caught dead in it'. I understand people not being into a certain item of clothing or a current fashion trend, I get that, I for one don't like Ugg boots but that girl walking down the street wearing a pair can carry on, it's her choice and she can do what the hell she likes because after all, isn't that the joy of fashion? Again, tattoo chokers, not for me but some people like Amy Valentine and Zoe London look smoking even when wearing one so that doesn't mean I instantly think they have no sense of style! Fashion has no rules and that's amazing. I might meet someone who is dressed head to toe in something I couldn't imagine myself in but good on them for being themselves and wearing whatever the heck they want.
As annoyed as I secretly got during the chat it's not a hate on the chats in general, I love heading there when they're on and talking to fellow bloggers about certain subjects and finding new blogs to follow. If you haven't joined in on one yet then you should, it's lovely being more active on social media and learning a little more about the people you may follow. The chats I try and make weekly are on Mondays and Thursday, head over to your twitter and search the hashtag #fbloggers between 8pm and 9pm to see what subjects on the agenda, you may even come away from it with more feelings than you thought much like myself.
Let's embrace my double denim get up and all agree to not hate on someone for wearing what they find 'fashionable'. For my ensemble I've stolen my other halves much loved Cheap Monday shirt and tucked it into a pair of darker washed denim jeans from BDG. I've also protested more by wearing a pair of sandals which I've said previously about how I've never been into, even more proof that we can change at any point. If you don't want to wear something then don't, but don't comment on how other people shouldn't wear it either. We are our own person and the reason fashion is so amazing is because we can express ourselves how ever we want.
