Caught this Canadian Tuxedo this morning on Instagram. Pictured above is NET-A-PORTER’s denim buyer Octavia Bradford looking effortlessly chic in denim-on-denim … now what’s that about skinny jeans being on the outs? No thank you. I’m sticking to this very flattering look.
This site is a place to celebrate a look, so we rarely mock an outfit, but man are we happy someone was out there rightfully ripping apart fashion no-no’s on and off the red carpet.
I found this photo of a rarely dressed down Joan Rivers at home with her dogs in her Connecticut home from the February 2003 issue Architectural Digest. Denim and a yorkie? I love you even more.
While I’ve never seen her rocking a Canadian Tuxedo, she certainly put her name on plenty of denim through her signature line she sold on QVC.
“I said to my husband, my boobs have gone, my stomach’s gone, say something nice about my legs. He said, ‘Blue goes with everything.'”
We concur. Rest In Peace. Hoping you’re looking fierce up there with Spike and all your other fabulous dogs and friends.
We hope this blog has proved the Canadian Tuxedo is indeed a stylish look, one that’s timeless and here to stay. So if you’re sold, but still not sure how to make denim-on-denim work, ELLE is here to save the day. Click here to see ELLE’s tips on styling a Canadian Tuxedo.

Denim on denim, or the Canadian tuxedo as it’s sometimes called, has had a pretty bad rap. Personally, I blame Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake. When the pair turned up at the 2001 American Music Awards wearing matching head-to-toe light wash, a whole generation vowed never to go near it.
It’s become one of those unspoken rules, like not wearing shoes with tracksuit bottoms or not wearing scrunchies over the age of 11. For spring, though, many big brands have worked hard to change your mind.
From Balmain to Louis Vuitton, denim dominated this season’s runways. It’s not just jeans that are having a moment: American designer Joseph Altuzarra sent out models in silk shirts with prints that replicated the fabric.
‘We have definitely seen a shift in this direction,’ says Matchesfashion.com buying manager Suzanne Pendlebury. ‘It feels like a much more modern, luxe way of wearing denim.’
