The Canadian Tuxedo

I am a double denim addict. I don't have enough fingers and toes to count the number of times I have reached for a denim shirt and pair of jeans! But ever since Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears decided to wear every denim item in their wardrobes back in 2001, double denim has since received a bad rap as being the ultimate sign of daggy.

Playing with double denim can be risky, it seems to contradict everything that the fashion industry has groomed within each of us. But for the past few seasons more and more celebrities and bloggers have been sporting canadian tuxedos and looking god damned amazing while doing it!

The trick to pulling off double denim is to take baby steps ... don't pull a full JT/Britney just yet (or ever)! Try teaming different shades of denim and be sure to break it up with modern accents. My two favourite ways to accessorise the canadian tuxedo are: 1. a bright red lip and 2. (with cuffed jeans) black ankle boots

Just the other day I threw on some light wash jeans, silver glitter sneakers (because why not), a white t-shirt with a metallic heart, and a denim jacket. I complemented the look with an orange Liebeskind bag and MAC's dangerous (red) lipstick.

I honestly can't get enough of this trend!!! Heck I'm even wearing denim in my profile picture!

So throw on your denim jeans and jacket, roll up the sleeves, add a red lip and some statement earrings, and rock the hell out of what everyone's been talking about since Justin and Britney put it on the map - the canadian tuxedo.
