I don't like nor wear jeans, so double denim is like a nightmare to me.

that look from Calvin Klein is beyond plain 'atrocious'

It depends: the look from Calvin Klein SS2012 is hideous but the Chloé SS2010 is awesome.

Bons baisers de Paris

I got my oversized denim-shirt from Zara like 2 years ago, and I've always loved rocking it with darker denim, so that's kind of cool. However, it can definitely get to be too much of a good thing. I don't like any of the styles posted, except for the one on Alexa Chung. I like these ones too: Mario Schwab

I also took the liberty to re-post some "golden rules" from a Guardian article from a whle back; 1 No belt, please. With a belt, the look that you were hoping projected Paris catwalk insouciance becomes unreconstructed Idaho truck driver.

2 You need contrast in colour: One piece should be a darker-hued denim. You might want this on your bottom half, darker colours being more slimming, but beware: a pale denim shirt can wash out your skintone.

3 Don't go with a very fine chambray shirt with a very heavy denim jean. That's not double denim, that's cheating, and it doesn't have the right impact.

4 Break up the heaviness of the look with something light and feminine: the strap of a fabulous Chloé or Mulberry cross-body handbag, perhaps; or a gorgeous pair of dangly earrings; or wear the shirt open one extra button to show off a tiny glimpse of a pretty camisole.

5 Roll your sleeves up and highlight bare wrists with a bracelet or a cocktail ring.

6 Finally, no cowboy boots. Keep feet semi-naked in ballet pumps or a pretty flat sandal.

I'm just waiting for the next thread to pop up saying....
"We're Just Kidding...Double Denim is NEVER Ok"

To me, denim on denim is hideous.

I've paired by distressed grey jean jacket with a pair of white jeans that I've had...I'm fine with that kind of pairing...

I just can't get into the blue on blue denim pairing...

I never got the big deal with double denim. It's perfectly fine if it's done properly. Just like pretty much everything.

I've always really liked double denim! glad to see it's not a no-go any more, but entering fashion shoots and runways.
