Once upon a time, the Canadian tuxedo was considered a serious fashion faux pas, but the art of doubling denim has since seen a complete makeover.
Denim is a multipurpose and all-around fabric that is the most common go-to item in people’s closets, as it comes in all shapes and sizes. But double denim is different from most other style trends right now, largely because of how it has remained the non-gendered uniform of both the famous and non-famous, of those filthy rich and those not, those who are self-proclaimed fashionistas and those who view clothes as convenience. The look unites men and women of all ages, and it hasn't had a chance to have a comeback merely because it has yet to really go out of style since first being popularized in the '50s.
Even fashion futurist Kanye West decided to make his red carpet debut with actress Julia Fox in a matching double denim look during the Men's Fashion Week in Paris. Fans are likening the new couple's look to that of Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears circa 2001, and it's funny to think we could be looking back on this moment in the same way (with the same cringe) in 20 years' time.
As you’ll see in the gallery, the look has been revolutionized and refreshed in the past few decades, and there are hardly any rules now. The shades don’t have to match, you can add a pop of color, pair it with heels, or complete the casual look with the classic footwear that the stars seem to favor.
