Triple threat.

In true ’00s fashion, we’re embracing the Canadian Tuxedo in all its effortless, comfy glory.

With the help of our friends at Order Of Style, here’s how to prep your wardrobe and pull off the look with the expertise it deserves.

This one-piece is so easy to style it borders on cheating. On its own, you’re still achieving the all-over denim look, and throwing a jacket over the top will maintain the double element. There’s no danger of shirts coming untucked or washes clashing, and a retro-inspired silhouette can add shape without sacrificing comfort.

A denim jacket

A jacket is key to any denim-on-denim look. To ensure this piece can be worn with as many of your existing pieces as possible, keep factors like fi t and wash in mind. Both should be flattering and versatile, but don’t shy away from something a little unconventional.

A pair of jeans

It doesn’t get more essential than a great pair of jeans. For a solid, versatile base, go for a straight-leg, high-waisted style in a classic indigo colour that’ll be timeless for years to come.

A denim shirt

To rival Britney and JT, consider adding a third denim element. If you’ve got your jeans and jacket sorted, throw on a matching shirt, too. Opting for a fitted style will keep your look modern and help balance things out.
