The denim-on-denim look is a tricky ensemble to pull off. Wear it too earnestly and you risk looking like Wheels from the original Degrassi series. Okay, and Joey and Snake too -- there's a reason they call it the Canadian Tuxedo, although truth be told, the term originated long before our Zit Remedy idols hit the small screen.
But the 'denim sandwich' can be done right -- our favourite Man Repeller has made the Canadian tux her own with some clever layering, and model Alessandra Ambrosio recently sported a very sexy double-denim outfit in an ad campaign with actor Ashton Kutcher. We're calling it: the Canadian tux is back in style. Case in point: Katie Holmes.
The actress was recently spotted in NYC with daughter Suri, and while we are accustomed to seeing Mrs. Tom Cruise impeccably turned out in luxe brands, Holmes was refreshingly low-key on her mother-daughter outing in a lightweight denim shirt, ripped jeans and tan flats. From the photos it also looks like Katie had her hands full with young Suri. But all this just serves to make Holmes more human, more endearing, more... like us.
Sure, it's not super-stylish, but we can't help but like our Katie a little more relaxed, a la Joey on Dawson's Creek. Have a look below and tell us, do you love the Canadian tux?
