Inspiration: Denim Dress-Up

Oh this ole thing?  This is just a little something I like to call the Canadian Tuxedo, made especially snazzy with the acid wash and fringe.  

Okay, that was obviously a joke.  I'm not talking about that kind of dressed up denim. 

I'm talking about maxi skirts and denim jackets, y'all.  

I wouldn't say that one particular person coined this look, but I have been seeing more and more of the "denim dress-up" lately.  

It really began to culminate with Jenna Lyons wearing a denim jacket with a dressy maxi skirt at the Met Ball.  
Then from there I've been seeing the look all over the place.  I especially love Blair's rendition of the look.  

This is definitely a look that I plan on re-creating soon.  
Jacket: Dorothy Perkins (only 59 dollars!), Skirt: Catherine Malandrino, Earrings: Kendra Scott Danielle , Bag: Celine Cabas, Shoes: Tory Burch Emmy

That 80s pic is HILAR with fringe. Had to a double take on the other pic because I thought it was you:) Super cute outfit!!!

That fringe reminded me of that 80s movie You Can't Buy Me Love You know where her white suede jacket that was actually her mother's with the fringe got ruined. Ha!

Dressed up denim is my uniform. In my world EVERYTHING can be worn with a jean jacket. Saw it years ago on Gwyneth and I just never let the look die. Oops.

haha omg denim tuxedos are SO scary. I am scurred. But love what you have going with the denim and maxi. Personally, I think I would do it with a bigger contrasting color like pink or purple rather than blue with blue, but that is just me!

Love the denim tuxedo! You must recreate this look and share. I adore Blair's look but pleated maxi skirts look like crap on me.

I'm not the biggest fan of denim on top... I think I'll let this trend pass me by, but I'll never say never... said the same thing about neon and now it's my favourite!
