Stylish guests are sharing their outfit inspiration for a new series, What I wore TODAY.

Denim is back! TODAY contributor Jill Martin stopped by the show on Wednesday to discuss ways to bring retro style into the 21st century, and sure enough, she dressed the part.

As Natalie put it during the segment, Jill was "doubling down on denim," wearing both a denim top and jeans. Did you like Jill's modern retro look? Here's what she was wearing:

  • Current Elliot button down shirt
  • J Brand jeans
  • Enzo Angiolini platform shoes

"I started off with my 'Blair' from the “Facts of Life” outfit. I wanted to be Lisa Whelchel growing up," Jill said. "In the 80s, denim on denim was the big thing. For a while, you couldn't wear denim on denim. It was a big faux pas."

Jill said her "hippie" belt was a key component in separating the pieces of the outfit, and that shoe choice is a great opportunity to keep the denim-on-denim look modern.

"I'm all for it, but sort of break it up," she said. "No need to button the top button like we did in the past. Wear an updated shirt underneath and updated pumps. It's a way to get the trend into 2013."

Video: From the white popped-collar shirts of the ‘80s to mod ‘60s style, everything old is new again. TODAY contributor Jill Marin shows how to bring back the best of past decades with fashion, beauty, toys, and candy.
