Stylist Nina Sterghiou, right, and jack-of-all-trades Brendan Fallis (he’s a DJ, manager to Theophilus London
and coconut water entrepreneur) dish on their favorite jeans and show us how to master the double-denim look.

 

Brendan Fallis

The key to wearing denim-on-denim…
Confidence. Always try to do two shades of denim to offset the color palette.

I always wear denim-on-denim with…
A white t-shirt if it’s a denim jacket and jeans, or a white button-down. Some Cole Haan Lunars usually make it into the equation, as well.

My favorite jean silhouette is…
Believe it or not, a pair of $29 Uniqlo jeans that I’ve worn-in and re-patched beyond belief. It’s the skinny slim silhouette, and it fits me perfectly. I usually wear them with a white t-shirt and some white Nike Flyknits.

How I wear denim at night…
At night, it’s easy to layer a denim jacket with some jeans. Throw a t-shirt under there or even a white button-down buttoned all the way to the top, and you’re set.

My denim icon…
James Dean.

The key to wearing denim-on-denim…
Just commit! It works for everyone, really.

When accessorizing with denim-on-denim, I…
Choose standout pieces, like a pair of edgy shoes.

My favorite jean silhouette is…
A boyfriend jean, with a slouchy denim button-down and my Givenchy Vans.

How I wear denim for night…
I typically throw on a Chanel bag. It immediately makes the outfit look expensive.

Right now I’m wearing…
Tory’s black Super Skinny jeans, Topshop shirt and Jean-Michel Cazabat shoes.

My denim icon…
Emmanuelle Alt. The woman knows how to wear a pair of jeans!
