Let’s all take a moment of silence in remembrance of the infamous Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake denim on denim red carpet look. May it ever remain as merely a costume.
Now, let’s move right along, because the Six Blogger Style ladies are here to show you how to rock the “Canadian tuxedo” denim-on-denim trend without looking like a hot mess!
Due to some unforeseen scheduling circumstances and a desire to focus on school, Dominique has had to leave the project. I will miss her quirky vintage style in these posts! Taking her place we have Jenna, who blogs over at Mrs. Teacher Chic!
You’ll also notice that we only have 5 bloggers this month. Kamalika has had to leave the project amidst a heavy and demanding schedule of blogging where she is in India. I ask that everyone reading continues to show her support at her blog, The Solitary Aesthete! We have another blogger ready to fill her position in February so stay tuned!
Gabby (Hey, that’s me!)
I wore this look for my birthday when Joe and I went out for sushi! And yes, I was FREEZING, but I’d been dying to wear this cropped denim jacket since I ordered it from one of my fave bloggers’ closet clean out.
When it comes to denim-on-denim, I find that on my short frame, wearing too much of the same color can make me look stumpy. Instead, I like to opt to wear this trend by using two different colors and patterns. Here I am wearing black high waisted skinny jeans with this adorable cropped white and floral-patterned denim jacket!
Underneath, I wore one of my favorite solid basics, a burgundy lace-yoke tank. You’ve seen it before in one of our other Six Blogger Style posts! I love the way the burgundy pairs with the mauve color of the flowers on the jacket… and these killer Anne Klein suede heels I scored for just $5 at a local thrift store! As always, I truly believe that the accessories truly can make all the difference. I styled this casual chic outfit with a layered necklace, featuring tigers eye and other rich, warm stones!

Jacket // secondhand
Jeans // a.n.a.
Heels // Ann Taylor (thrifted)
Necklace // Minaret Three Row Convertible Necklace by Chloe + Isabel
Jody has taken a more casual stance on the denim-on-denim look! She styled her denim button-up open over a tee and paired with darker, cuffed boyfriend jeans and classic white Converse
Chelsea opted to stick with classic blue washes for her look. She pairs darkwash flares jeans with a lighter wash denim button-up, and tops it all off with an awesome pink faux leather jacket. I love how sleek and polished she has made the dual-denim trend look!
Oendrila (Just OD Things)
Oendrila’s layering of a denim dress and denim crop top is genius! And her choice of booties makes the whole outfit remind me of a modernized American-Frontier-Meets-1970’s look! So cute!
Blue denim on blue denim, with no colour blocks? Most people would probably stay away from this, but I love to do what others don’t. I had this denim dress, but to make it look a little different, I slipped on a crop top, to turn the dress into a skirt. The usual 100% cotton denim has a look and feel of its own. Instead of that, I picked polyester blends of denim, commonly used for suiting and shirting purposes, especially in fusion fashion. As a result, my skirt and top, despite having the characteristic indigo shade, do not quite have the 70’s look. Instead, they look much softer, lighter and flowier. While the skirt is as simple as it gets, and has a matted look, the top has some light threadwork, in the same colour as the skirt, and even has a gentle sheen. The fabrics have made all the difference here. And, while the chunky neckpiece makes things more ethnic, the boots add a touch of street style to the look.
Jenna is our newest addition to the team! She blogs about the teacher lifestyle and teacher fashion over at Mrs. Teacher Chic.
She’s giver her double-denim look some classy variety by pairing blue-black skinny jeans with a darkwash denim top & a beautiful cardigan. And can we talk about those shoes? *swoon*
