Make your jeans do double duty with these five simple outfit ideas.


With the never-ending supply of oh-so-chic denim — we're talking cool jeans, chambray shirts and posh indigo jackets — denim on denim, or what we used to call a "Canadian tuxedo" never looked so cool. Not sure how to pull off this totally right now trend? No worries. These five outfit ideas will have you embracing your cool blues in style all season long.


For work

There's nothing chicer than denim on denim on casual Friday. Create contrast in your outfit by pairing darker skinny jeans with a lighter, embellished chambray top. Tip: Tuck in the shirt, and add colorful pumps for a more polished look.
