As some of you remember I rocked the Canadian Tuxedo my JR year in college and was ridiculed for it. Now 8 years later it has become trendy and I am still wearing the same denim shirt that I did back then. This past weekend, my lovely friend and fashion mentor Erika came all the way up from Baltimore to pay me a visit. I decided to adorn myself in the tuxedo to pick her up from the airport, just to rub a bit of salt into my own wound from JR year. The key to making denim2 work is to mix up the washes and the textures. Wear a dark or raw fade on the bottom and a washed out or light wash on top. It’s nice to mix in a different colored layer or throw on a patterned scarf to ad a pop of color. You can dress this look up with a pair of heels or wedges. Do not and I repeat do not wear a brimmed hat with the denim2, that’s just taking it a bit too far. See below for some great combinations that make this style work. In the first look wear the denim shirt buttoned, but make sure you can see the tank top sticking out below. In the second look wear the plaid shirt buttoned but wear the denim shirt opened and roll the sleeves of the denim shirt up so you see the plaid poking out.
