Double Denim (The Subtle Way)

Double Denim Styling a Pencil Skirt
I have a habit of becoming super-enthusiastic with the arrival of each new season, but I really can't contain myself with this one. Spring has sprung, and I couldn't be happier!  There's only so many cold and rainy days I can take in a row, before they stunt productivity and see me dreaming of beaches.  Speaking of which, at some point in the far future I can definitely see myself moving somewhere with a much warmer climate all year-round.  Anyway, with the seasonal-wardrobe changeover complete and the prospect of bare legs being justifiable after many months undercover, I've shown some love for double denim styling - the subtle way!

Spring Summer Double Denim Styling
Denim Heels by Deichmann Blogger CollaborationThere's something about spring that immediately turns me towards pale denim, which explains why this perfect denim skirt has been my go-to piece over the past fortnight.  My opinion of H&M goes up and down, but this skirt gets a massive thumbs up from me, especially thanks to the raw-edge hem.  Come to think of it, following on from my Meeting Styling, I have a bit of a 'thing' for unfinished, raw hemlines!  Back to the concept of double-denim, these heels from Deichmann are part of the Ellie Goulding Star Collection; the minimal design is totally up my street and they're SO comfortable to walk in.

Psst! The coral lipstick worn in this look is Charm by Mii Cosmetics.  For more details read my review of their new Spring collection - Cherish Mii.

To allow the denim to stand out, I've opted for a white knitted jumper by Ralph Lauren.  I've lost count of how many times I've been on the edge of donating this item, but for whatever reason, I've now fallen back in love with it and so I'll have to pick something else to donate!  I love the chic, cruise vibes this jumper lends the outfit, though above all else I'm smitten with this gorgeous Halcyon Days hinged bangle!  I picked up this white and silver beauty in their Spring sale, though I've listed a few of the brand's other pretty designs below...

  5. I’m not a fan of the Canadian tux so this look is perfect double denim in my books! Love the subtleness of it. Those denim heels are perfect & I love how you styled it with a slouchy jumper.

  6. This is such a fresh and unexpected way to wear double denim and you look smashing Gabrielle! Denim skirts are always a classic! I can't wait until it's warm enough to wear mine. When spring comes, I'm always ready to ditch my dark denim for lighter shades as well :)

  9. I am a big fan of denim and double denim, and the twist you put on double denim here is very refreshing and spring like. The heels are great, but probably a tiny bit too high for me to walk in them comfortably.

  17. You look beaut and that denim skirt suits you perfectly! Also you definitely shouldn't donate that jumper, it's such a classic. H&M goes up and down in my opinion too - sometimes they have everything I want and others they don't have anything - that skirt is a gem though!

  30. This is indeed a very subtle - but smart - way to style double denim! I'm not the biggest fan of denim myself, although denim skirts can be really pretty and great to style in the spring. This jumper is a good basic as well, you were right to keep it as white knitted jumpers are always good to have no matter what the season is!

  41. I tend to reach more for lighter denim too come spring, it just exudes the season more and pairs so beautifully with lighter colors and pastels! That said, I absolutely adore your skirt! It looks so cute on you, I love the hem and how you've styled it with the white jumper and chambray sandals! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having a great week so far!

  50. You really nailed the double denim look. I'm not really huge fan of double denim, it just looks too much, however, having the other denim element on the shoes made the whole outfit so beautiful and I'm loving it! That skirt is so pretty! x

  60. You look stunning, dear!

    I've always been a fan of white and denim combination. I love how your look has this fresh, fun, playful vibe going on. I love your shoes! It has a classy design but the denim added 'fun' in it. I think double denim is much better when it's subtler, like your outfit.

    Have a happy weekend!

  63. I agree that denim works so well in the warmer months! It can lend a nice casual feel, yet here you styled it in an unexpected way. I love the way the heels work with the denim skirt. Also, I gotta say your hair looks absolutely GORGEOUSSSS styled like that! How did you get those perfectly messy waves??

  69. Double denim is STUNNING on you Gabrielle! I really love the subtle vibe you've chosen, it really makes it such a dreamy look for sunny spring (JT and Britney should definitely have adopted this style instead of overloading the denim together circa 2001!) The soft edge of the jumper is so stylish and the skirt and heels really add the perfect edge to the whole look. Love how gorgeous and happy you look in the photos; you're a total blast of sunshine! <3

    I'm totally with you on wanting to move to a warmer climate, I honestly can't stand another UK winter ;)

  70. Admittedly, I'm not the biggest fan of denim skirts usually but the split in this one makes all the difference in my eyes - completely transforming an item that you might usually see on Mums into something so much more! The fresh white jumper and the matching shoes really pull everything together for the perfect Spring look!
