Blame it on our affinity for denim of all varieties, but lately we’ve been zeroing in on a particular reoccurring look that’s making its way around the celebrity set. That’s right, we’re talking about denim on denim, friends. Often referred to as the Canadian tuxedo (thanks, Super Troopers), this jean-centric style is popping up on fashion favorites like the Hadid sisters, Rihanna, and Zendaya, and we’re eating it up over here at Who What Wear headquarters.
We know you may be thinking not for me or that’s too intense, but we beg to differ. These women below show a range of ways to style your most beloved denim items together. From a classic jacket-and-jean pairing like Whitney Port to Gigi Hadid’s adventurous R13 distressed duo, we’ve got seven inspired routes to achieving denim success below. Also, because we know you like shopping as much as we do, there are some amazing denim pieces to shop right now in the mix as well.
