Perfect Outfit: A Polished, Piled-On Denim Ensemble

Monochrome ensembles are one thing, but this amped-up Canadian tuxedo is somethin' totally new. Forgoing mixed prints and patterns, we spotted a look outside New York Fashion Week that keeps it interesting, while keeping it, essentially, all the same.
Pairing boyfriend jeans and not one, but two, denim button-downs, this perfect outfit teaches us a lesson in layering. The takeaway? Mix your washes for extra dimension, and when in doubt, use the oldest trick in the book — yep, that handy '90s waist tie — for a layer of grunge. Polish it all off with a sexy statement shoe for an instant upgrade to even the most basic of closet essentials.
