Canadian Tux + Tips

Over the years I’ve made wearing denim on denim harder than it should be.  I was always trying to be too matchy-matchy or looking for the perfect chambray shirt.  But, there’s no such thing.  One day, I had to just put it on and go. Most recently, it was a quick outfit choice for a casual brunch. Psst busy moms! Can we say go-to weekend outfit!! Yes! And the best part: it’s super easy to accessorize. I mean, seriously, denim and chambray goes with EVERYTHING!  

Here are a few tips to get you over the denim hump:

  • DO find denim pieces that flatter your body type.  We all know not all denim is created equal.
  • DON’T think you have to be matchy-matchy.  Different washes actually make things more interesting.
  • DO distress your denim.  There’s something about a few rips that break up the monotony & play well with other denim.
  • DON’T accessorize with other denim pieces (purse, hats, etc.)  I’ll just say JT, Britney, and awards show and leave it at that.
  • DO play with color.  Like I said earlier, denim goes with everything, so have a little fun.
  • DON’T be afraid to dress it up a little.  Adding a statement necklace, bright lip, or a cool clutch will instantly elevate your canadian tuxedo.

According to Q, denim on denim doesn’t have to be a hard decision.   Just grab it and go.  Choose casual, laid back accessories or glam it up!
