Denim+Denim: Studs

Today I'm kicking off my first themed outfit week: denim on denim!! Check back often to see how we wear  our favorite wardrobe staple! 

Denim on denim, aka the Canadian tuxedo, is one of my favorite trends. I like wearing darker jeans with a lighter wash top, like this vest. I decided to give the outfit a little Western styling, while sticking to my grungy edge. I think the slight studding and wear on the vest add just enough punk to keep the outfit from going too cowboy! I also love my tooled leather boots with the metal tips. They're a classic style that can be added to any outfit for a little rockabilly flair. Finally, I added the bright nails and colorful tank to keep the outfit from looking too dark and monochromatic.
