To be sure, the denim-on-denim look is nothing particularly new. Jean outfits—or "joutfits," if you will—have been an all-American staple since the years of Marilyn Monroe and James Dean, and nowadays, it’s impossible to go a full day at New York Fashion Week without spotting at least one blogger or editor in mixed-and-matched denim separates.
That said, thanks to today’s ever-changing denim trends, there are seemingly more ways than ever to wear your blues right now. Overalls are fast becoming a fashion-girl staple, for instance, and denim pencil skirts have never felt cooler. To wit, I’ve put together eight denim-on-denim looks that are a bit of a departure from the traditional Canadian tuxedo—from an outfit built around those aforementioned must-have dungarees to a cutoffs-based ensemble that’s pitch-perfect for a summer music festival.
