After Angie mentioned the denim on denim trend in a previous post, I thought that I must try my own versions of the Canadian tuxedo,

Outfit #1
This dark wash denim jacket is well over 20 years old, it was a gift from my mom, but its been a bit of a closet orphan that I just couldn’t part with. I’ve combined it with cuffed Levis’s, a fuchsia coloured turtleneck and my Clarke taupe booties.

I rather like this double denim combination, and  think it would be very easy to wear like this.

Outfit #2
Next was the high waisted ON faded loose jeans with a navy striped top under a medium was denim blouse with gathered shoulders. Added red loafers for a pop of colour.

This look is the most on trend and very casual, but I’m not sure its quite me. I’d probably just  wear it around the house.

Outfit #3
Haha, my triple denim look this time, with very dark wash flared jeans paired with a patterned chambray shirt and finished off with a classic denim jean jacket in a medium wash.

A fairly traditional look but I think it works okay too.

Funny, how for so long denim on denim was such a faux pas, kind of silly really. I think its great fun combining different denim together into one outfit and it certainly gives me more options to combine with in my closet.

ETA: Super happy to have a professional stylist like Angie give me some tips, so I tried applying her suggested tweaks.

Photos #4-5 Angie suggested neutral layering tops and buttoning up part of the jacket. I like both these looks very much.

Photo #6 The tweak was to wear striped socks and black loafers
instead of red, scrunch the sleeves so the contrast of the fabric doesn’t show. I like this so much better and it really feels like me too.

Photo #7 Angie suggested to button the shirt all the way to the top and do a semi tuck. Not sure about the semi tuck but I do like the shirt buttoned up.

What do you think about these outfits?
