7 Fashion Staples You Need to Rock Denim-on-Denim the Right Way

The classic denim-on-denim look (aka, a Canadian tuxedo), is a popular trend that's been around for decades, and thankfully we don't foresee that changing any time soon. If anything, people are finding new, creative ways to double up on this beloved fabric.

Denim Jacket

When re-creating the classic Canadian tuxedo, a denim jacket is a must, and if you don't already have one in your closet, don't fret. This Free People jacket is just what you'll need to effortlessly pull off such an iconic look. It's made with lightweight stretch denim that provides comfort and high style. We love this Indigo Blue shade, but if you're looking for something more unique we recommend going with the black or navy option. ($66.25, usually $98; zappos.com)

High-Waist Jeans

With so many types of jeans on the market, it can be difficult to choose which style will best fit the look you're going for. Lucky for you, we found this wear-with-anything pair of Levi's ankle jeans at Nordstrom that will complement your denim jacket to a tee. These pants give off major vintage vibes and feature a high-waist fit that accentuates your curves to show off your beautiful figure. What more could you ask for? ($98; nordstrom.com)

Boyfriend Overall

Spoiler: Denim doesn't always mean 50 shades of blue and the denim-on-denim trend doesn't limit you to jeans and jackets. Try these black overalls on for size and you'll be wearing them all year long. That's right, you can keep it to a minimum by wearing a plain white tee underneath and completing the summer ensemble with denim mules, or layer up for winter with a long-sleeve denim top tucked in. ($67.49, usually $119; luckybrand.com)

Denim Hat

Bucket hats have been a trending accessory for a few years, and the hype isn't slowing down. Thanks to this so-cute frayed denim hat you can add some serious fashion points to your denim-on-denim look (and you don't even have to style your hair). Although it's typically a summer staple, include it in your fall wardrobe by wearing it with a graphic tee, jean jacket, and Levi's jeans. Trust us, there's no such thing as too much denim.

Denim Dress

You might be wondering: How the heck do you accessorize a denim dress with even more denim without feeling over-the-top? It's quite simple actually, and no, it doesn't require a jean jacket. Pick up a pack of denim hair scrunchies, slip into a pair of matching booties, or add both to your outfit and you'll be all set for date night or lunch with the girls. Not to mention you'll be making a major fashion statement. ($128; freepeople.com)

Denim Blouse

We envision this denim shirt tucked into a pair of black high-waist jeans and accessorized with red lipstick and booties. If an outfit like that doesn't have you in the mood for a night of fun, we don't know what will. The best part is the top costs less than $45 and it's a fashion-forward piece you're sure to wear again and again. ($42; asos.com)

Denim Skirt

The great thing about denim skirts is they can be dressed up or down for almost any occasion, and this one from Shopbop is no exception. The button-up design adds sophistication that has the potential to be a work-perfect wardrobe staple (with tights underneath, of course), while the dark-wash hue gives you the opportunity to pair it with edgy accessories like red heels and (you guessed it) a denim jacket.
