Charlie Chaplin in denim on denim..

9 May

Hello, my friends! Is it any surprise that today’s post is menswear inspired? I love looking dapper. If I could get by with walking with a cane and a monocle, I probably would. Since denim on top AND bottom (a.k.a. “Canadian Tuxedo”) can look tacky very easily (think that horrendous  matching denim dress and tuxedo combo that our friends Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears rocked for the 2001 American Music Awards), there are a couple of simple rules to help you pull off this look in a chic way. First, you should keep the two denim pieces in the same color family but different shades. The bigger the contrast between shades, the better. Mixing distressed pieces with more streamline or “new” looking pieces is another great way to make this look more fresh and modern.

      Thank you! I’m actually wearing a hat BECAUSE I didn’t fix/wash my hair 🙂
