To those of you who are wondering what a Canadian tuxedo is, it’s actually pretty simple. It’s just another term for an outfit that consists of a denim shirt and denim pants or, basically, the denim on denim trend. Now, this particular look got a bad rep the last time they were around but luckily it’s getting a better reception today along with its comeback, thanks to the brilliant fashionistas out there who never fail to come up with a chic way of styling it. Speaking of styling Canadian tuxedos, check out these tips on how to style a Canadian tux and make it your own.
- LIGHT AND DARK – to keep your Canadian tux from looking dated, make sure to wear a lighter wash denim on one half and a darker wash denim on the other. This means that if you have a light wash denim shirt, you should pair it with a pair of dark wash denim pants. Doing this will add versatility and dimension to your outfit.
- TRY IT WITH DUNGAREES – give your ol’ Canadian tux a touch of country style by donning a dungaree instead of just jeans and either wearing a denim shirt underneath it or a denim jacket on top. It’s not your usual Canadian tuxedo look but it sure is something that will catch the attention of others. If you’re up for making a statement with denim, you should definitely give this one a try.
- ADD POPS OF COLOR – wearing denim from head to toe can be a little boring even when you’re wearing different shades of denim together so to brighten up and liven up your outfit and give it a little more of a cheerful vibe, it’s best to add pops of color. Stick to a maximum of two colors when doing this so you don’t end up having too much going on in one look. Try a bright belt to break the monotony or maybe finish off the outfit with a pair of fun and colorful statement heels.
- GIVE IT A STREET STYLE VIBE – if you find the conventional Canadian tuxedo look too made up and too polished for your liking, you can always give it more of that street style vibe and go rough and rugged with your look. Some of the best ways to do it include switching to a pair of distressed denims, opting for shorts (or jorts) instead of pants and just roughing it up in general.
- LEND IT A LADYLIKE LOOK – on the other hand, if you like your looks posh and polished and you wish to give the Canadian tux a more ladylike look, you can always do a denim shirt and denim skirt combo. It will make your outfit look more feminine without taking away the easy and casual feel of the whole look.
