double denim


Okay, not to throw shade, but does anyone remember the days when skirts over jeans was a trend?

It was by far one of the most questionable looks of the 00s, and now, ASOS is trying to bring it back, but with a nod to another nostalgic 00s look. 

If you remember skirts over jeans, you will definitely remember Britney and Justin's iconic double-denim red carpet ensembles from the 2001 AMAs.

Well, ASOS is paying homage to both of these looks with one of their new-in items. 

The Liquor N Poker Denim Skirt over Jeans with Pearl Detail is a hybrid of the two, as the item boasts a shredded, asymmetrical denim skirt over a pair of straight-leg jeans (thank god they weren't bootcut)

The piece of frankenfashion has tried to redeem itself with a new season smattering of pearls, but we're noy buying it. Literally.

Oh, and to top it all off – they're low rise. 

This is clearly another one of those 'WTF' fashion items, up there with those Topshop plastic jeans and that ASOS sausage necklace.



When it came to fashion, the early noughties weren't exactly kind to any of us.

From teaming Ugg boots with ra-ra skirts to smothering ourselves in velour, we're all lucky we made it out alive.

And no one appears to know this more than Justin Timberlake who made the very bold decision to address his most iconic fashion disaster while appearing on an Australian talk show recently.

After being asked what he's learned from his time in the music industry, Justin didn't offer any music-related pearls of wisdom, but instead made reference to perhaps one of the most misguided fashion choices of the 21st century – the double denim.

Referring to the moment he and former girlfriend, Britney Spears, rocked a red carpet in matching ensembles, Justin said: "If you wear denim on denim, it will get documented."

It may have taken more than a decade, but it looks like the man himself is finally able to laugh about it…



Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake were a power couple long before Beyoncé and Jay Z ever came along. And the whole world loved them. 

In 2001, the celeb couple made the ultimate commitment to each other and wore (the now-famous) double denim outfits to the American Music Awards. And if your memory serves you well, it was everything at the time. 

In the 14 years that have passed since that style moment, many famous faces – Katy Perry and Riff Raff to Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively – have tried to recreate the look; but neither Justin or Britney ever batted an eyelid. 

Until now that is. Because Britney is a sucker for kids, the popstar took to Instagram to give praise to stylist Monica Rose's children. Yep, these kids used Halloween as an opportunity to dress up as the Disney duo and replicate the jean-ius look that once was. 

And as you can see, they totally nailed it:

BUT if you look closer at the IG post, Brit-Brit included a VERY important caption: #britneyandjustinforever.

Yep, we'll never forget. 



It was once the fashion choice of Nineties popstars and Texan line dancers, but double denim has since had a complete style turnaround. We agree it's still a risky choice, but when it's done right, wearing top-to-toe denim can look effortlessly chic.

Here are a few easy tips to ensure your outfit looks more catwalk and less cowboy!


1. Try different colours
If you're a double denim virgin, ease yourself into the style by pairing blue denim with other colours like black, white or dark green. Selena Gomez' black skinnies are the perfect match for her bleached shirt – we bet you have the makings of this outfit in your own wardrobe!

2. Incorporate a non-denim piece
Break up the monotony of an all-denim look by adding another key piece in a different fabric. A chiffon cami under your denim jacket is a simple way to do this – or add a biker jacket like Karlie Kloss:

3. Mix up textures
Distressed denim is the perfect way to add some variation to your look – this street style maven looks grungy but sleek in her ripped boyfriend jeans and oversized jacket. Love!

4. Go luxe
A structured blazer, killer heels or a blingin' necklace will pump up your outfit's glamour levels no end. Gold cuffs and an oversized jacket really make this blogger's look something special:



1. Take it too far
Three words: simple, simple, simple. A shirt and skinny jeans is the perfect double denim outfit choice – don't go overboard with denim accessories or a third matching item! Olivia Palermo gets it 100% right with this elegant combination:

2. Wear all bleached denim
Matching different shades and washes of denim can work very well, but try to steer clear of wearing two identically bleached denim pieces, unless you are a fan of the Canadian Tuxedo look. Cara Delevingne plays it safe by combining two similar denims in a darker shade of blue. Stunning!

3. Wear themed accessories
Yes, you are wearing double denim. No, you are not Clint Eastwood. Leave the stetson, cowboy boots and bandana at home, unless you want to risk looking like Justin Timberlake in his prime!

4. Channel ghosts of fashion past
It may have worked for Britney and Justin (see above), but that doesn't mean it's right for you. While we certainly admire Rihanna's bravery in stepping out looking every bit the Nineties fashion goddess, we're not sure it would be our first choice!
