Twilight star Ashley Greene was out getting some fro-yo for herself the other day, wearing an outfit that can be described as denim on denim.

Upon seeing these pictures, one question instantly popped into my mind: “What is going on here?”

I like wearing double denim and denim-on-denim outfits, provided they’re done correctly. Miss Ashley Greene seems to have followed the number one rule of doing denim on denim (to wear varying denim colors, weights, and washes), but they’re not varied enough to be a flattering look for the actress.

The shirt and the skirt are from the lighter spectrum of denim in terms of weight, color, and wash, and those Mary Jane pumps do not help break up the monotony of all that blue. So, how can we turn Ashley Greene’s denim-on-denim outfit from a miss to a hit?

Here are three outfit proposals that don’t veer far from Ashley Greene’s denim shirt and denim skirt combo but would be major upgrades.

Elevated Denim Styles: 1) Elizabeth and James Chambray Shirt paired with Hurley Denim Skirt. 2) Current/Elliott's Pale Gray Shirt and Citizens of Humanity High-Rise Skirt. 3) Blank Denim's Boyfriend Shirt with a Prps Denim SkirtElevated Denim Styles: 1) Elizabeth and James Chambray Shirt paired with Hurley Denim Skirt. 2) Current/Elliott’s Pale Gray Shirt and Citizens of Humanity High-Rise Skirt. 3) Blank Denim’s Boyfriend Shirt with a Prps Denim Skirt

I chose plain denim shirts with more stylized denim skirts for Ashley Greene, which would accentuate and draw more attention to her shapely legs.

Can someone please tell her not to tie the ends of her shirt in a knot like that? She could also wear shoes in a different color so that not everything is blue.
