The doubled denim look, dubbed the “Canadian Tuxedo” by moments in Levis fashion history, Β is something I wear often. I may be Canadian but that’s not why, I just find that I’m at my most comfortable in Denim, yes you can call me crazy. A flowy dress, or loose skirt for me is the complete opposite of comfortable. I’m always picking and pulling and making sure things are in place while wearing outfits like that, can you say stress!?

Β I think denim on denim has effortless personal style cred. It’s super easy and you don’t need to overthink what works and what doesn’t. I’d say what doesn’t work does! Doubling up your denim and mixing different shades is a fun task and I think you’ll be pretty pleased with the outcome. I personally love mixing different shades of the same shade ( if that made any sense) to create contrast. Light blue denim on an even lighter washed blue with say dark thread or coloured threading is something I would look at while styling this look. You can also get away with different shades of black on black; can you believe that! My personal fave for the summer is white on white, or a white denim jacket with super light washed blue mom jeans or light washed shorts/skirt. Seriously the combinations are absolutely endless. After that slip on a fun shoe and quirky bag and you’re good to go.

Some of my fave stores in Toronto to snag denim/vintage denim: House of Vintage, Β  Public Butter, Philistine, Mama Loves You Vintage, Value Village, Forever 21 (cheap can DIY), Urban Outfitters and Common Sort. The list goes on really…

I originally saw these jeans on Pinterest and fell in love. Anything fringy, fuzzy, furry etc and I am in. I started to do some digging and I was only finding designer versions for atleast $100 plus. For me I’m never willing to splurge on a fast trend that I may not wear often enough, so as I own a million pairs of jeans (some that I don’t wear anymore) I decided to DIY a pair and try it out. Surprisingly they came out of the wash looking pretty dope that I don’t even need to invest in a pair, WIN! Here are some of the jeans I was eyeing before I made them myself: Zara, 3X1, andΒ Loeil.
