Canadian Tuxedo - Double Denim


So you're scrolling through your Instagram feed and see some of the biggest influencers rocking the Canadian tuxedo. You're wondering, "how do they pull it off so effortlessly?"

Not to worry, we've got the answers.


... but it's not easy.


Wearing double denim can be tricky; on one hand they can leave you looking like an unkempt pile of hand-me-downs while on the other hand they can leave you looking hot, suave, or something out of a magazine cover!



Although wearing the exact shade of denim up top and down below can work, it is usually not recommended. Donning the same shade of denim can be visually off-putting to the eyes.



The key here is to create a visual contrast that will be appealing and fashionable. A deep blue denim pant will scream when paired with a washed off sea blue denim jacket, for example. Contrasting two shades of denim makes it highly complimentary, try it!

Now that we have the basics down, let's take it to the next level! Here is how:


A scarf here or a little tote bag there can make all the difference when wearing double denim. Spice up your outfit with complimentary jewelry such as tan wristwatches, neck scarves, cool sneakers or boots.

 A cautionary note: Do not over accessorize double denim. They are timeless pieces that do not need complication or you'll start to tarnish the look.



Fashion favors the bold. Your double denim outfit whatever color contrast you choose or accessory should help in telling a story. Your combination should leave an impression on every eye you encounter.

Canadian Tuxedo's are fun to wear all season. Break the blue or black monotony and don't be shy to experiment with other colors of denim. 

Experimenting means experimenting. You can bedazzle your outfit or attach cool labels to them, whatever rocks your boat. The aim is to ensure that you have fun with the double denim so you do not end up a plain Jane or plain Mike.




We definitely encourage some experimentation when it comes to wearing double denim, but the best way to wear it? Keep it simple.


The best Canadian tuxedo outfits are the ones that come off as effortlessly cool.

Try pairing a denim pant with a casual tank top or vest while slinging your jacket casually over your shoulder or tying it into a cool nonchalant heap over your waist.

However you chose to stand out, be simple and unassuming about it,



- Double denim is timeless, classy, easy and practical. One poor choice can however lead to a fashion eyesore.

- Learn what contrast works for your skin, eyes or hair. Compliment it with fun accessories while staying simple. You can also rock same shade of double denim, why not!

- Remember to tell a story with your outfit while innovating and setting trends for others to follow.
