Look Book – Denim on Denim

By on April 20, 2014

Sometimes there’s a trend that you love immediately, and sometimes there’s a trend you hate. Other times there’s trends that you have to try out yourself, or wait to see it on other people. The “Canadian Tuxedo” was one of those trends that I had to see on others first, but once I tried it, I loved the idea of mixing denim. You have to be careful though, because if you don’t do it properly, the Canadian Tux can look like a hillbilly uniform, so check out these four tips to look good in mixed denim!


First tip of the day, try a pair of shorts with some cool detailing to chop up the denim overload. Try a cute aztec print, or even some lace detailing would be cute!

Look 1:
Top: Topshop
Vest: J.Crew
Shorts: Boohoo
Second tip of the day: throw on a top with a cool print or a bright color, and add some femininity to the mix with some adorable wedges!

Look 2:
Jeans: Etsy
The third tip to remember is that patches are easy to pair! If you’ve got a pair of jeans with different denim patches, pair it with a denim top for the full effect of the Canadian Tux!

Look 3:
Booties: Sole Society
Jeans: La Garconne
Backpack: Chanel
Lastly, you can do a more subtle Canadian Tux by using accents with your shoes or accessories. These polka dot boyfriend jeans are so adorable, and add a cute clutch with a pop of color to mix it up.

Look 4:
Top: Equipment
Jeans: Mink Pink
Clutch: Moschino
Sunglasses: Ray-Ban
Sneakers: Van

The Canadian Tux can be cute, if done carefully. It’s a comfy and cute casual way to mix up your denims. Let us know how you style your denims @TOCityGossip @Mel13Marchand
