Denim on denim goes in & out of style, but in my humble opinion, it is a classic that you can always tailor to the trends happening around you.

For this look, here’s my thought process:

  1. Go with a Basic Blue Jean – I prefer high rise and super skinny because it’s the most slimming fit for my body.  I also always buy jeans with some sort of stretch, the stretchier the better, for comfort & fit.
  2. Match your Jeans & Jacket – If you’re going to do the Canadian Tux, your top & bottom should match; they don’t have to be the exact same color, but I would get as close as possible (think in terms of light, medium, and dark washes).
  3. Pay Attention to Fit – Since my jeans are so high rise here, I opted for a cropped jacket, to emphasize my waistline (right where the top of my jeans & bottom of my jacket meet).
  4. Accessorize – I added a scarf, gloves, and over-the-knee boots to break up what would otherwise be a SOLID DENIM look from head to toe.  It creates texture and movement for a more chic, less western look.
  5. Mix Prints – Rather than adding more solids to the look, I chose a striped top and patterned scarf to create some contrast, but I still stuck with black & white to keep the look streamlined.
