Texas Tuxedo

Denim on Denim for the Plus Size Gal

Denim is here to stay. Period. Every season has a new wash, new cut, new shape that keeps this classic fabric current, relevant and fresh.

A look that has always fascinated, intimidated, and seduced me is the Texas Tuxedo.

Okay, yeah. It’s a Canadian Tuxedo.  BUT I’m from Texas.

 

This look  isn’t exactly anywhere near a formal tuxedo. BUT I’m down with the phrasing. I totally love the casual, monochromatic classic vibe of this look and there’s something sort of rough ‘n tumble about it too.

I think the look is a little bit western, definitely masculine and pretty damn timeless. My aesthetic is feminine, and more “darling” So how do I style my  look to play into the trend but still stay true to myself?

Here are my tips!

Tiny Personal Touches

This denim blouse has a great big bow on it. That great big bow has a vibe that’s SO me. I love feminine, vintage touches with a little bit of whimsical flair. Traditional denim on denim looks usually include chambray button downs (although trendy, definitely not the same delicate vibes I love). I made this denim on denim look more me by making sure it had a very Rosey Touch. (Can I get that trademarked? Haha!).

Keep the Denim Current

Admittedly, I totally have a closet full of black and dark denim. All streamlined and clean, tapered and AAAAAaaaaaaaand of COURSE the current denim trend is  DISTRESSED, LIGHT WASH DENIM. I buckled down and decided to try the trend.

and you know what?

I love it!

It definitely gave my denim on denim look a Cowgirl meets Beach Bunny feel, and as a former Angeleno  – that works for me!

Pop on Some Color – With Accessories

Monochromatic looks are fun, but I love color and breaking things up a bit. I added a cute mint bandana and some nude ballet flats and felt a break in the head to toe blueness of my denim. Voila! more me.

 

All in all… this isn’t that difficult or dangerous of a look to cop or try for the day…but I for one get stuck in wearing the same outfits over and over again. I GET IT.

I decided to change it up, and I’m stoked I did.
