trends that make you go hmm... denim on denim

Are you familiar with the "Canadian Tuxedo"? While often considered a mistake of the 90's (there is even a website dedicated to the worst offenders), denim-on-denim looks have lost the boy band stigma, and are once again fashionable! 
(I wonder if my children will question this in another 20 years!?)
I think the proprietor of thecanadiantuxedo.com said it best:
"Sometimes it’s important to look your best. Sometimes everything else is in the wash. Sometimes you just don’t need a reason. In these situations, it’s good to know there’s a fashionable option to ensure you feel comfortable as well as good looking. Couple your jeans with your denim jacket in a delicious double denim ensemble that tells the world just how super cool you are"

The runways and street-style sidewalks have embraced the head-to-toe denim esthetic (hello Spring 2010), have you? I was reluctant to give it a try (aka late to the party again), but now that I have embraced this lifestyle, I think I'm hooked (it doesn't hurt that my chambray shirt is easily my favorite shirt in my closet!) Good thing fashion is a little behind here in Nashville. I also am looking forward to pairing my chambray shirts with colored/patterned denim come spring - so fun!

  5. I love it! I'm thinking about doing an outfit like that myself. I think it's funny how 5 years ago it would have been a huge fashion faux pas haha.

  10. I am also reluctant about this, but I think the key is to keep the shades contrasting. I prefer the dark denim with the lighter top. You did a fabulous job. I also LOVE the necklace.
