#TrendAnalysis – How to Wear Denim on Denim

A tricky trend to nail, Canadian Tuxedo – or double denim – is here to stay. While it might look a bit intimidating, just a few simple rules, and you can rock this like no other! The secret to carrying double denim comfortably is balance. When you’re wearing denim on denim, lighter shades of denim draw attention to the areas they cover while darker shades create a slimming effect. Mixing different washes is way easier to carry rather than using all over same colour. That is not to say that same washes totally cannot work though. We show you a few styles on how to carry denim on denim for every occasion –

1. Dark skinny denims, light Chambray shirt –

Semi Formal
Easily an outfit for office on Casual Friday’s – this combination is the easiest way to carry denim on denim. The light weight, light wash shirt matches easily with dark skinny denims. Heels and a formal bag add to the “office quotient” of this look, If you’re a Canadian Tuxedo virgin, this is the easiest step to venture in this territory.

2. Casual territory – Blue jeans, light blue Chambray shirt

To wear denim on denim casually, all you have to do is team your chambray shirt with a darker wash pair of jeans. Throw in casual shoes and tie your hair up in a loose side pony and you’re good to go.

3. Chambray shirt with white skinnies

Though a white jeans is very tough to carry since it accentuates and pulls attention towards your legs, it is not impossible to pull a denim on denim look with it. The trick is, choose a pair of white denims in lighter fabric. Less bulk makes for a balanced look. This combination is perfect for Summer and it also keeps you protected from Sun. Add a pair of brightly coloured shoes for fun. My favourite from this look though is my ice cream mobile cover. Nothing better to beat the heat.

4. Chambray Shirt and Daisy Dukes


Tiny pair of shorts, chambray shirt, and a bright neon coloured bag. This look is quite an easy one to carry too and quite comfortable on a hot summer day.

5. Beachy Vibe

Team your shorts with a sleeveless vest and don a chambray shirt as jacket for the perfect denim on denim beach look. Also, throw in a wide brimmed straw hat.

6. Denim Jacket with White Jeans

A bulky heavy dark wash denim jacket can perfectly complement a light weight and wash pair of jeans. Just add a vest in for a balanced silhouette. And of course, high heels.

7. Denim on denim on denim

The trickiest of all denim on denim trends to carry is the triple whammy. If you want to go all denim, make sure you’re choosing different washes of each article. I wore my black skinny denims with a light chambray shirt and topped with a dark blue heavy jacket. Keeping the length of the jacket shorter than the shirt adds balance. To break the monotony, carry a coloured scarf around your neck.

Denim on denim is quite a fun trend to master. After all, don’t we all just love denims? Leave me a comment if you’d like to see how to take this trend to the domain of denim skirts & dresses too.
