Gigi Hadid Puts a Supermodel Spin on the Canadian Tuxedo
There are few looks as divisive as the double-denim Canadian tuxedo—but in 2019, it's time to embrace it. Update it. Put your own spin on it. Exhibit A: Gigi Hadid, who wore the get-up while en route to the US Open to watch her friend Serena Williams play. The model sported an oversize chambray shirt with the sleeves left unbuttoned, a piece not unlike the wacky, ’90s-era garb of Will Smith during his Fresh Prince years.
Leaning into that laidback appeal, Hadid opted for a pair of loose-fitting, high-waisted denim Sandro pants that also had stitching down the front, lending the look a hint of polish. And it wasn’t all strictly denim: In the mix was a barely buttoned cream silk shirt, a fistful of Hadid's signature gold necklaces, and green suede pointy-toe boots.
We all know that head-to-toe denim can be overpowering. The combination often ventures into ironic territory (Justin and Britney’s 2001 AMAs looks, anyone?), or can make for an eye-popping red carpet ensemble ) When it comes to wearing it in real life, however, it can be hard to pull off. The key here is to break up all of that jean.
Hadid did just that: by opting for a silk shirt, she steered clear from honky-tonk costume and instead gave us rodeo-ready supermodel.
