The denim tuxedo

I’d like to take a moment to discuss the denim tuxedo. Once upon a time, this was a crazy bad decision. Nothing good came out of the choice to pair denim with denim. However, times are a-changin! I recently came across some darling takes on denim on denim.

This is something I put on Pinterest a few days ago (follow me!). This girl looks adorable. The different tones and fabric weights make the denim combo acceptable. Plus, she breaks it up with some smart accessorizing.

I was behind this girl while exiting a plane. The pic is not the best, but she was rocking some rich blue jeans, a black tank, long drapey cardigan, and a cropped light wash denim jacket on top. The different lengths of tops doesn’t work for everybody, but this woman could pull it off because of her height. And also because I think she was a model. And generally cool-looking.

So if you’re brave enough to go denim on denim, make sure to choose two different tones, and preferably two different weights. Often, the more contrast the better. I love a lightweight denim or chambray button-down paired with darker wash jeans. And punched up with a little color here and there. If you want to dress it up a bit, grab a white blazer to throw on over the whole thing.

    Who makes good white blazers that are cropped enough for short ass girls like me?
