Osheaga here we come! We style 3 looks that will keep you looking festival-approved from the folk shows to the dance parties
Though Canadian tuxedos once had a bad rep for being the epitome of tacky (a stereotype that was only further amplified when Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears showed up to the 2001 American Music Awards looking like a denim sandwich), they’ve been having a sartorial resurgence over the past few years. The modern (and infinitely chicer) take on a Canadian tuxedo is all about pairing denim tops and bottoms that have contrasting elements. Different colours, textures and treatments keep it from looking too matchy-matchy.
Denim was originally created for working in the fields, so given the potential muckiness that often accompanies music festivals, I’ll know my denim-on-denim look will hold up. A backpack, comfortable wedges and worn leather belt help break up the denim and are also festival-friendly, while reflective aviator sunnies (a festival must) and layered jewellery gives the look an added dose of chic.
