Oh how denim-on-denim (the Canadian Tuxedo) has grown over the years. From simple chambray shirts and jeans to oversized jackets, boyfriend jeans, ripped everything and so much more; the styles and shades are endless. I've been obsessed with the trend lately, however my obsessive behavior with colour will not allow me to wear shades that are worlds apart. I purchased the jacket and the jeans on separate occasions with the hope that it was a similar shade.

How to rock a Canadian Tuxedo

It's all about the wash

Your choice of shades is very important, particularly when it comes to blue. If you're looking for a more conservative look I would suggest findings shades that are similar in colour. However, if you're a little more adventurous that me go for a mixture of light and dark washes.

Try something different

Your Canadian Tuxedo does not have to be blue! Denim comes in an array of colours. Try colours such as white, khaki, tan and my absolute favourite; black denim. Non-traditional colours are also a lot easier to play around with.

One word: layering

I'm envious of people who are masters at layering. Layering is not my strong suit; it does not come easy to me. I really need to apply my mind when layering and even then, it might not work. But if you deem yourself to be a master at layering then you will really enjoy this one. I can only dream of layering multiple shades of denim to perfection.

Have fun with it

When it comes to denim, the safe option always seems like the best option. Especially if you're going to be spending a little more because let's face it; good denim don't come cheap, however, try to push the envelope every once in a while. Before purchasing this jacket I had no idea that a kimono-style denim jacket even existed. Now that my mind has been opened up, I can't wait to purchase more unique pieces.

How will you be rocking your Canadian Tuxedo?
