The classic “Canadian Tuxedo” may have gotten a bad rap. While this outfit duo has historically been associated with questionable fashion taste (we’re looking at you, Britney and Justin!), it seems to have taken on an elevated twist amongst today’s trend-setting stylistas. I bought this denim jacket and skirt separately and never thought of pairing them. But when planning this shoot, they just felt better together.
There are so many ways to work this trend, the most obvious being a a denim shirt or jacket and jeans. For this look I started with an oversized, deconstructed fleece-and-denim jacket. Next? An updated jean skirt designed in a pieced longline silhouette with a feathery fringed hem. Layering up a white or black denim combo is another way to go, too. A key trick to doubling up on denim is to create your own denim harmony with matching or contrasting denim shades and silhouettes.
Since we’re well into winter I wanted to keep everything else cozy. I love the textural appeal of this sweater vest, plus it’s super soft. Perfect to layer over a pretty white top. Add a colorful fleece-y bag, thick cushiony socks, chunky boots, a wool beanie — and I was good to go.
What’s are your thoughts on Doubling up on Denim? Yay or nay?
