Denim on Denim on Denim


This week it is all about the Canadian Tuxedo (denim on denim) look and we are seeing this look pop up everywhere. What I love is that we are taking one of America’s favorite fabrications and embracing it more than ever!  I realize many of us have worn this look before, but there are definitely some new tricks that styling tips that you need to have before you rock this look….
• Make sure that you have interesting details happening in your shirt or jeans (or both). This is the season for embroidery, distressing, cut-out and so much more. If you take a plain pair of jeans and a plain denim shirt, the look can come across a bit “blah”.  Spice up the look a little with a cold-shoulder denim top or a pair of jeans with a raw hem.
• Accessorize Away!! Since the whole look is super-neutral, don’t be afraid to add those bold necklaces or a colorful shoe. A statement handbag or a beautiful belt are great ways to glam up the look, too.
• Layer it up! As we look forward to Fall arriving, a simple way to create more drama in this look is to layer a classic black blazer over your denim-on-denim look. I always love the idea of a colorful scarf or a textured vest to embrace the season.
See? Easy!! This is a go-to look that we should all be wearing on repeat this season. We have dozens of denim options waiting for you at Gee Loretta, so stop in and get fitted in your Canadian Tuxedo today!
