I can guarantee that most women, young and old own, have owned or will one day own at least one item of denim. Trusted and adored for its durability and comfort; denim is a go to textile for EVERY season.
The denim pendulum has swung back and forth over the years from the super skinny to the flared and cropped, ripped and textured type of jeans that are seen on the streets and in stores right now. However, fear not if none of these styles appeal to you, there will always be denim cuts in every style, for every shape and budget.
There’s a beauty about denim in that there are over than a hundred ways to wear it right and far less ways of wearing it wrong. Whether you’re dressing it up or down, do it easily with these on trend denim pieces, and while we’re at it, let’s talk some DIY.
Embroidered denim pieces are hot on the trend list this season. If you’re daunted by the idea of embroidering your jeans yourself or paying someone to do them for you, fear no more. Alibaba.com is great source of iron on patches and brooch pins to add character and sass to your denims at a steal.
#2 HIGH WAISTED AND PATCHWORKED
All of us have old garments that haven’t seen the light beyond our wardrobe doors in a while. Why not cut them up into pieces, use a needle and thread to add patches to your denim jackets or bottoms? It’s super simple and no one will have the same denims as you.
#3 BLEACHED AND FLARED
Bring out the bleach! This season’s trends should make you less afraid of a bleach stain. There are endless ways to play with bleach; you can dip the lowest part of the legs into the bleach or try the tie-dye technique by using marbles and elastic bands and dipping parts of your jeans into the bleach to create a retro look. You can also create a new look denim jacket by washing a plain denim jacket in warm water and bleach a couple of times until you are satisfied with the look.
Giving an old pair of denims a face lift has never been easier. Use scissors and tweezers to cut holes and rip to your hearts content, there really are no rules when it comes to ripping. I do highly recommend that you watch a tutorial or two to ensure that you get the best results.
Inspired by a brief encounter with a painter yesterday I remembered that using paint brushes of different sizes to decorate your denims, or even simpler, flicking different colours of paint onto your denims will give them an instant trend update.
Having trendy denim pieces does not require you to spend money that you don’t have. With a little bit of creativity and online tutorials, you should be able to create whatever you want for next to nothing. Most importantly, have some fun doing so, because ain’t nobody got time for boring denims!
