Perfecting the Canadian Tuxedo

Did I just gave you the fake out of your life, or what? 

This title of this post suggests a whole lot of denim but the post that just went live a little while ago told you to look out for some serious monochrome.  While yes, there will be monochrome, it won’t be today. There is, however, something to be said about the nature of layers n’ layers n’ layers of denim in cahoots with monochrome m@dne$$. Sometimes I just type and I’m not even sure what I’m saying. So I’m just going to leave that there and make an executive decision not to proof read.

Instead, have a look at some sweet denim in action. 

First I layered leather. And then, I layered suede. Now in honor of rising temperatures that are still debatable, I give you: jean. Not Billie Jean. Just like, jean.

tank: T by Alexander Wang, shorts: Ever, rings: DANNIJO
It starts with boyfriend shorts. They may look decent from this angle, but no good can come of them. One time, I said I looked like I am wearing diarrhea in my ass and accidentally sent the sentiment in an email to my entire address book. That was pretty funny. Extra repeller points for Michelle Trachtenberg-status white skin. 
blouse: Madewell
 Oh brother, these just keep getting worse. Add a denim shirt and then look in the mirror and say, “this is a pretty standard Canadian tuxedo.”
moto jacket: H&M;
And then, pull a denim jacket from the trenches of your childhood and ask yourself while smiling: “why aren’t I wearing shoes?” Honestly, it’s a little rude.
vest: Zara
Layer a vest over, why not. At this point you have nothing to lose…especially not your virginity. 
And finally:
shoes: Valentino
Add fancy shoes. You know what they say…when in a bedroom corner, do as the bedroom corners do.

    I adore how you incorporated the 'fancy' shoes; its so unqiue as individual- i love the fact that you're dressing down the shoes, however implicating a formal attire to your overall casual/very layered outfit. Perfect!

    i think you are the girl with the most fancy shoes! i love the way you wear the most gorgeous boots alive. they always turn up the volume. you look smashing in pale pastel colors. the baby blue looks insane with your hair. love the leather jacket, every girl should have a spring leather jacket. but the best part: how can jeans shorts look that sophisticated

    I'm Canadian and the Canadian tuxedo is very easy to pull off. Its all about making sure that the denim colours are contrasted and of different weights.

    It's just not fair. I try to layer, and I end up looking like a crazy homeless woman — which I guess is man-repelling… In a different way. On a positive note, you look fantastic.

    It started with "ok where is this going", went on with some laughs and ended up with "wow looks great!" and "how does she do it?"… actually you've just showed us how you do it… but I still don't believe it!

    I really enjoy your look, but without the shoes, you have camouflaged into the wall! The fancy shoes and moto jakcet are great, btw.
