Sitting on the tube today, opposite me was a French man. The first thing I noticed about him was that he was wearing double denim, and I proceeded think ‘Oh dear’. The second thing, was that it actually worked and that he looked damn good. Perhaps I’ve been missing a trick? It seems Sienna Miller (of course she obviously loves it, remember that Twenty8Twelve collection?), Kate Moss, Pixie Geldof and the like have already been rocking the DD look..

Now, the idea of DD actually fills me with dread. It should be kept to the parameters of jeans and at a push, dungarees if you’re A) a child B) a pregnant woman C) Alexa chung D) Riding a bike through a field in a romantic french film. Outside of that and wearing jeans with a denim jacket a la Pixie Geldof above, just feels a little wrong to me – it’s like a bad suit, no? Admittedly, worn like Sienna above and like so many of the models wearing that double denim packed Twenty8Twelve collection, mixing and matching the denim colours I can let pass. I might even like it. So, can I tempt you? Take a look at some of the delights I’ve found below and tell me what you think. Do you dare to double your denim?
