The short of it: Two little tweaks can make a big impact.
The long(er) story? It’s quite a good problem to have: too much denim. Of course, you’ll want to wear a few pieces at once. By now, you know the fail-safe way to avoid the Texas tuxedo look is to always mix your washes.
But our newest twist on the timeless combo is one you could probably do right this minute (well, as soon as you finish reading this, in about two minutes). Layer a striped tee underneath a denim button-down. Peeking out from behind the buttons, a flash of stripes is just plain cool.
