Double Denim: Fifty Plus Style

Such a lot is said about double denim that most of us shy away from it as the ultimate fashion faux pas.  However, I think it can work if you get the proportions and colours right.  I wouldn’t wear the same shade of denim top and bottom, nor would I wear jeans with a classic denim jacket, but I think this shirt dress looks OK over a pair of dark boot cut jeans. The shirt dress is from Gap and is a great piece to have in your wardrobe for layering.  The jeans are M&S and the striped tee is Henry Holland at Debenhams.  Both shirt and top are long enough to wear as a dress, but, as they say, ‘not on my watch’.  My knees are staying firmly covered up thank you very much.  The bag is from Jasper Conran at Debenhams and the superlight trainers are from Hi Tech.  I’m dressed here to go walking along the seafront at Torremolinos.  We stayed there last week at the Riu Nautilus. The weather varied between 15-25 degrees from one day to the next, so layering and walking shoes were the order of the day.  Anyone else like a bit of denim?
