Denim on denim looks popped up on nearly every runway and European designers, in particular, showed a special affinity for the indigo fabric. The likes of Gucci, Fendi, and Valentino modernized it with clean lines and an array of chic washes. Do you want the look of denim without the added weight? Try a chambray fabric for an airier feel. Pair your pick with buttery brown leather goods that perfectly accent denim’s all-american appeal.
