Things I Hate: The Denim Suit

I was recently reading the August 2011 issue of one of my favorite magazines, Glamour. In the fashion section, they featured a blogger who was wearing a denim top paired with denim jeans. They seem to think that denim can be worn in various shades, on various articles of clothing, all in one look. Personally, I'm not a fan. I have yet to see someone pull off what I like to call the "denim suit." The denim suit is when someone wears denim from head to toe, whether it be a jean skirt paired with a jean jacket, or, dare we say, a literal denim suit as seen on Justin Timberlake below...what was he thinking?

Do you think you have what it takes to pull of this look? Send me your photos or links to some of your favorites. Maybe I'll change my mind, but until then, let's just keep it to one piece of denim per look. Here's some of my favorite fashion faux pas when it comes to denim...

  1. this is such a great post, it's so funny because I was reading that new issue with Heidi Klum on the cover yesterday and I was thinking the same thing. I know denim and denim is perfectly acceptable but I don't think I could wear it :) Maybe a light shade shirt and ultra dark denim jeans, but I was definitely looking at all those blogger pics wondering if I'd ever wear that.

  8. Uhoh! I think it can be done. But you have to mix certain shades and wear particular styles. I tried my hand at it a little while ago here - Triple Threat

  23. Omg, that denim maxi dress is really ugly and so it the suit. I'm having very differents opinions about this subject every single day. Some days I think it's really cool and some days even sweat pants is better then denim all over. I just think you have to find the perfect set to match! Often I wear some bright Cheap Monday jeans with a shirt stucked into my jeans and a belt, and then I style it with my denim shirt from H&M and use it like a kind of jacket.
    By the way, I really like your blog, and think it's some great posts you share. You'd like to follow each other?

  32. oh my idk i think denim on denim is not a good idea either its just too much denim itself is so heavy and such a keypiece that it shouldnt be overdone ;)

  33. Omg why Justin,why?! And my man Eric from True Blood..it gets the best of them. Saw an article in Allure today and I'm thinking it might work with the darkest of dark denim in the same shade with the right fit...and a supermodel haha

  34. too much denim is just terrible haha, It's like having different patterns as your entire outfit instead of taking one key piece and working around it. Although I don't hate denim in general, only when it's a denim suit like you said haha. And I think the guy on the lower left (don't know his name :P) pulled it off nicely :)

  37. Haha at the least, pair denim of different washes together! The denim dress in the first photo is an interesting look though.

  38. Thanks so much for visiting and commenting! New follower, hope to see you do the same if you're so inclined.

    I agree the denim suit, or "Canadian Tuxedo" as I've also heard it called, is horrid. I'm afraid I do subscribe to the it's okay to mix denim if the shades are varied enough. Here's my post on the subject (also featuring JT & Brit). Let me know what you think of my suggestion:

  40. You know, from the photos you have here anyone would hate the denim suit, but I maintain that when done right, the denim suit is in a class fashion awesomeness all its own.
