Denim All-Over? Yes: either sporty or très chic!
Sweeties, you know what? Lately, I’ve rediscovered a super cool look for myself – the Canadian Tux (and I find this name for it so funny). Yep, that’s the (un)official name for the all-over denim look and today, I’m gonna show you how to style this re-emerging trend in a très Parisienne way and in two versions: sporty and chic.
The basics for this very French version of the all-denim look? A pair of jeans with the perfect fit and a denim shirt which fits perfectly on the shoulders but is still a bit on the oversized side of things. Most importantly: the denim-colours need to be similar, otherwise it will look cheap. In this look, I’ve opted for a medium light blue denim as it is one of my favourite washings.
A true no-go? Strange combinations of denim blazers, denim trousers or skirts, denim hats and denim handbags! Oh no, no way! After all, you don’t wanna remind people of the look Britney and Justin were sporting a mere 17 years ago. Although, those pictures from 2001 have turned into true classics these days when you are talking about the Canadian Tux!
But enough of dwelling in the past when this cool look has finally grown up and can seriously be worn on the streets. The combination of denim on denim can indeed look super cool, if you don’t overdo it. I’ve chosen a beautiful denim shirt by & Other Stories** and combined it with my favourite Sabina jeans by Rouje.
In the more relaxed version of this look, I’ve styled the denim-look with a long trench coat (mine is from Jake*s*) and shoes that are very “in” at the moment – unfortunately: white Reebok Classics* sneakers. If I want to go a little bit more chic than that, I’m trading my sneakers for mules by Prada and leave my trench at home. The hand bag by Rouje fits for both occasions, it’s so Parisienne! And the same goes for the belt by Rouje – at least, it bears my first name initial – 2 times!
One thing that was really important to me, though, when styling this outfit? Sand and blue are two colours that fit together perfectly, but adding another colour would definitely have been a little bit too much.
What do you guys think? How would you style and wear the all denim look? And what is most important to you while doing so? I can’t wait for your comments!
