Denim shirts are an often overlooked wardrobe staple, but there is one key way that all of our favourite influencers wear them—and it's the perfect brunch look. Net-a-Porter's Lisa Aiken and Aimee Song of Song of Style prove that when it comes to denim shirting, the best way to style it is with another dose of denim and to fashion your own Canadian tuxedo. Instead of opting for the same denim wash, it's far cooler to mix things up and opt for clashing shades of denim. We would advise a shirt in a lighter wash than your jeans, but as with everything in fashion, this rule can be broken, as Jessie Bush shows below.

Style Notes: When mixing denim washes, follow Aimee Song's lead and opt for a lighter, more classic denim for the shirt and a darker wash for your jeans.
Style Notes: Lighter washes tend to work best on the top. However, we love how Jessie Bush's oversized dark chambray shirt looks with her lighter frayed-hem jeans. She keeps the rest simple and opts for black brogues and a black crossbody.
Style Notes: Another weekend-perfect spin on the double-denim suit is to layer a denim shirt underneath your denim dungarees like Katherine Ormerod.
