1. Mix washes. Pairing two medium wash denim pieces together? Bad. Mixing a medium-to-light wash chambray button down with acid wash jeans? Perfection.
2. Tote a chic bag. Head-to-toe denim with a fabric bag over your shoulder definitely looks casual-cool, but not “expensive”. Do yourself a favor and grab your vintage chanel clutch or other cute purse to keep the look high end.
3. Wear fresh kicks. Nothing says “I am effortlessly stylish and I make more money than you!” than a pair of fresh, clean kicks to punctuate your outfit. Bonus points for metallics.

We’ve got to say, double denim (or the Canadian Tuxedo, if you will), is sort of a standard for us at this point. We don’t bat an eyelash if we’re strolling through Brooklyn and spot someone stylishly sporting this mono-denim combo. WWD says it’s only just getting revved up, though, and it may be that the two-toned denim-on-denim trend is about to streamline into same-wash territory. Excited? Horrified? Either way, click through to see their slide show and figure out whether this trend progression is for you.

Apparently this guy doesn’t know he was channeling sex gods, but he openly admitted he regrets a lot of his style-decisions in the past, from corn rows in his pop-star days to the denim-on-denim suit he wore to the American Music Awards in 2011.
“God, I feel I’ve gone to therapy just to erase some of them. The cornrows I wore with ‘N Sync. That was pretty bad. Britney and I wore matching denim outfits [to the 2001 American Music Awards]. Yeah, another bad choice. I’d probably pay good money to get some of those pictures off the internet.”
Too late, rhinestone cowboy.
