Denim on denim also known as the Canadian tuxedo is having a moment, everyone from Olivia Palermo to your favorite bloggers are rocking this look. Personally, my favorite look is a soft oversized chambray shirt, and a pair of distress cutoff shorts. Just keep reading to find the 3 easy steps to pull this trend off.
Yes, denim goes with just about everything in your closet, but when denim on denim is done right, it looks amazing! Keep it simple with two denim pieces, the trick for getting this look right is the wash, fit, and your accessories.
Wash: When putting a denim look together keep in mind that lighter denim draws attention to that body part, while dark denim creates a slimming effect. Monochromatic looks are slimming; dressing in similar shade denim is perfect for a curvier figure.
Fit: Pairing a really baggy pair of jeans and an ill-fitting shirt is not okay; make sure your jeans or shorts fit well and that your shirt is fitted. If you are going for jeans pick a slim fit or skinny jeans to create the illusion of long lean legs.
Accessories: The best thing about double denim is that you can play around with your accessories; go with a bold shoe, neutral purse, funky hat, statement jewelry, or a fun belt to break up the double denim. Just try to stay away from cowboy-themed items, leave that for the rodeo.
