We saw it happening last year fall – fashionistas and celebrities alike popping up in denim-on-denim ensembles that were nothing like the fashion faux pas of double denim clad Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake circa 2001. For Glamour magazine’s August 2014 cover, actress Katie Holmes rocks denim-on-denim – widely known as a Canadian tuxedo. Similarly, actress Zoe Saldana wears a Canadian Tuxedo for the August 2014 cover of Marie Claire; an issue, we must add, that they title “The Denim Issue”.
Perhaps the fashion world is onto something here – simplicity is on-trend! The thing that we love most about Canadian Tuxedos is their versatility. They can be donned by women, men, and children. They can be dressed up or down. They have a way of making you look like a fashion risk taker, but uninterested at the same time. Most importantly, your footwear options to complete this classic look are limitless!
Take a look at some of our favourite denim-on-denim looks that we hope to see carried into fall!
