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.

Gwen Stefani likes to push the envelope when it comes to fashion, and she’s no different with denim. And, we think she did alright with this Norma Kamali denim on denim ensemble: a slim fitting denim jacket with a drop hem tail, and skinny jeans with an unusual diagonal zipper close. Stefani was snapped in Paris, while heading to a TV appearance. We think the secret to rocking any double denim look is a custom fit. We’d like to think Denim Therapy had something to do with how her denim jacket and skinny jeans fit on her like a glove (off the rack, the crotch hangs lower), but not this time. By the way, Ms. Stefani (or do you prefer Mrs. Rossdale?), if you’re reading this, have your people give us a call. We’ll hook you up with one of our expert services for your next public appearance. Just sayin’.

Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester was spotted on the set of the show wearing a casual double denim look that involved Blank NYC denim shorts and a PS1 wallet bag. We have to admit, we’re not used to seeing Blair Waldorf in flip flops and a button down chambray shirt… but we’ll go ahead and assume she’s not in character. Are you excited for the final season of Gossip Girl?
Grab yourself a pair of destroyed Blank NYC denim cut-off shorts asap!

Popular style blogger Andy Torres of Style Scrapbook spent her warm New Year’s eve rocking a double denim outfit, while visiting family in Mexico. Never boring, Andy went for a bright red pair of skinny jeans by Zara, to complement her DIY denim shirt. At first, we thought her sleeves were the result of an ombré dip-dye project, but we soon learned she did a chop job by sewing on bleached sleeves (which does have a subtle ombré effect), three-quarters of the way down. This girl’s got talent!
Are you in love with how Andy is working the color trend throughout her outfit? We don’t all know how to sew (nor have time to, if we could!), so we’ve pulled together a few pieces to mimic Andy’s fab look! Layer a white button down under a denim shirt (with blue sleeves rolled up), et voilà!
GET THE LOOK…

3. Tribal Rights necklace ($98) – buy it at Bauble Bar.

Not feeling dark shades this winter? We aren’t either! But lets face it, sometimes it’s hard not to result to black during the cooler seasons. An easy way to keep your wardrobe on the bright side is to mix and match different shades of denim and by adding interest to any look with interesting prints and patterns. Mohcine Aoki does just that by styling a cool fair isle sweater with a not so matchy, matchy double denim ensemble (we really dig his light washed denim jacket!). To ensure you keep things bright, style in accessories with pops of color and in warmer shades like brown instead of black.
1. Topman ecru geometric pattern sweater ($60) — buy it at Topman.
2. Levi’s hop cap boots ($272) — buy it at ASOS.
3. Miracle Icons tourmaline bead bracelet ($115) — buy it at Barneys Co-Op.
4. Ksubi The Roadie skinny jean ($215) — buy it at American Rag.
5. Acne Steve Pearl denim jacket ($240) — buy it at SSENSE.

We love this shot of John Legend performing on stage at the End of Polio Campaign Concert in the G-Star Arc Jacket on October 28th. He brought an all-American double denim look to the performance, kept cool by way of his styled stand-up collar as he serenaded the crowd. We really dig the way he kept his look to-the-point with a neutral light-hued knit shirt beneath his denim, and of course, the jacket itself is killer.
Want one? Buy it at G-Star for $210.
Shop G-Star online at their brand new US e-shop, and stay tuned for our spring 2012 showroom preview!
