Models Agree: This Former Outfit Faux Pas Is Cool Now
Poke fun at the Canadian tuxedo all you want, but it's clearly making a comeback, especially among the supermodel set. Style stars like Gigi and Bella Hadid, Elsa Hosk, and Cindy Bruna have been spotted rocking the look as of late—inspired, perhaps, by the A/W 17 runways, where Dior, Calvin Klein, and Stella McCartney all endorsed the denim-on-denim trend.
Of course, these weren't your Justin-and-Britney-circa-2001 outfits—not that we don't appreciate that moment in fashion history—but rather modern, fashion-forward takes on the easygoing ensemble. For daytime, the models kept it casual with comfy-looking sweaters and ankle boots, while for night, they dressed it up with crop tops, heels, and fishnet details, all with a nod to styles of decades past.
Below, see how eight top models styled denim-on-denim outfits and pick up tips for how to pull off the look yourself.
WHO: Candice Swanepoel
Play up the vintage vibe by coordinating the denim look with a newsboy cap. (Adorable baby optional!)
WHO: Cindy Bruna
WEAR: Prada bag; Delalle SilverBurst DeHex Sunglasses ($333).
The unconventional silhouette of this long-line denim jacket gives this ensemble a sophisticated feel.
WHO: Gigi Hadid
WEAR: Krewe Ward Sunglasses ($332); Topshop Long Sleeve Frill Neck Top; Sandro jeans; Tony Bianco boots.
Keeping the rest of your outfit in the same colour palette—as Gigi does with her beige boots, top, and belt—helps things look streamlined, not disheveled.
WHO: Rhiannon McConnell
WEAR: Madewell Jean Jacket ($152).
This look is all in the tongue-in-cheek details: the measuring-tape belt, the shrunken polo, and the monogram reading "Rhisux" (only $10 extra at Madewell).
WHO: Bella Hadid
The red racer stripes down the side of Bella's jeans add a bit of punch to her monochromatic look.
When they're not rocking double denim, supermodels love all things athleisure. Here's how Gigi, Kendall, Jourdan, and more are styling their comfiest clothes this season.
