When it comes to denim, a double denim look is a tricky one to pitch correctly. Now, we know what you’re thinking – how am I going to pull this off? But the key is to match dark and light denim pieces together. Take this outfit as an example, the light-wash denim shirt would look chic when paired with darker jeans and you could complete the outfit with a pair of black suede boots. In total, this look comes in at a cool £39!
Heading off to a party? Why not pull out your trusty denim shirt? No, we’re not kidding – a simple denim shirt can make for a good contrasting piece when paired with something dressier like this fringed skirt. Tuck the shirt in for a more laidback look and finish off with a pair of black killer heels. The collective cost of this outfit comes in at just £38.99.

You can put this look together for just £38.99.
