Think the “Canadian Tuxedo” was just a nightmarish getup of the ’80s and ’90s? Think again, but this time don’t think of a monochromatic mess of blue jean. The denim on denim ensemble is back, but this time very much improved. Before what was a look reserved for the style-challenged (recall: Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake circa the 2001 American Music Awards) has transformed into an incredibly chic look, that is, once you have mastered the art of denim.
The key to an all-denim outfit is playing with colors, patterns and styles. With jeans available in so many different variations of hues and prints, your look could be achieved, for example, by wearing your foolproof denim chambray shirt with a pair of purple skinny jeans. See what I did there? The same fabric is paired together, but the variation of colors adds interest to the outfit. Trade your chambray shirt with an oversized denim vest and the purple skinny jeans with black ones, and bam! Same idea, totally different look.
This Fashionista mastered the denim on denim trend with a different approach. She opted to show more skin on the bottom by wearing shorts, while she wore most of her denim on top. Since her legs are brought attention to skin rather than fabric, they became the focal point of the outfit. She wore white jean shorts with a blue floral pattern that coordinated perfectly with her chambray shirt. Even if she wore dark blue jean shorts with this top, the look would work because her legs aren’t covered with fabric.
Take advantage of the huge selection of jeans that are available now. With these new tricks up your sleeve, your ensemble will never disappoint. Denim outfits are casual looks that won’t leave you looking like you came out of a bad ’90s film.
