If you know me, you may be aware of my denim obsession. From denim jeans, coats, tops, to denim skirts and even boots. When it comes to the double denim trend, often referred to as a Canadian tuxedo, there are a couple of simple rules.
Don’t be afraid to go for denim accessories – if you do it right it can work really well. However, it can also be disastrous. When I say disastrous, I mean Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake at the 2001 American Music Awards disastrous.
Don’t go for a denim outfit that’s all the same wash or weight. Don’t be afraid to vary up the shades and textures, as this will create a nice contrast to your outfit. And remember to use the denim shades in your favour: a lighter shade will draw attention to the body while a darker one will create a slimmer effect. If you master the double denim then you can even go ahed for something more tricky: the triple denim.
I took these photos in the summer of 2017, but it seems like a good time to post them now at the beginning of 2018. At the NYFW several designers such as Tom Ford, Calvin Klein, Adam Selman and Zadig & Voltaire presented the double denim trend in their Spring\Summer 2018 collections.
