Canadian Tuxedo –
1. An outfit consisting of a denim jacket & denim jeans. To spice up the outfit a button down denim shirt may be worn.
2. Wearing denim on denim, bitches.
It’s fair to say that this OOTD isn’t entirely a Canadian Tuxedo as technically I’m not wearing a denim jacket, but I think the chambray shirt comes pretty close. I’ve always vowed that I would NEVER wear double denim. Something about it reminds me of bad mullets (because there’s such a thing as a GOOD mullet – hello, Michael Bolton, people!) and listening to “Summer of ’69” – BLERGH! Never say never they say!
I think the trick to pulling off double denim is to wear contrasting colours (mixing up light and dark denim) or textures (distressed with chambray) OR to really spice up the look by adding in lots of accessories like belts, scarves and bling. Here I’ve taken a scarf and used it as a belt for that Stevie Nicks 70s chic vibe.
For today’s OOTD I’ve teamed my favourite wardrobe piece – my Paper, Denim + Cloth denim skirt with a Kmart chambray shirt and added a splash of green underneath to break up the denim. I tied *ahem* the outfit together with this gorgeous silk scarf with skull and flower details and topped it off with these amazingly fabulous heels that were a recent purchase from Zara, from their Summer/Spring ’14 collection. They were a steal for $59.95 and I believe when I showed them to my sis in the store she said “OMG I want to have sex with those shoes!” That sold them to me!! I love the touch of sparkle.
