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,
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.
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.
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?
