Okay, so it’s not the first time we’ve seen jeans with a little embellishment (early ‘00s rhinestone pockets, anyone?) but denim with a little added detail is in the midst of a serious comeback—and we’re so here for it. What versions top the trends? Read on to get the scoop!
Here are the embellished denim trends for 2019.
Whimsy is the name of the game for denim that boasts embroidering detail. From teensy floral elements peppered at the pocket to bold patterns embroidered across the entire hem, this textural interest steps up simple jeans. Try embroidering on jeans with a vintage fit (hello high-rise!) and add a broken in tee for that effortless, “oh, these ol’ things?” effect.
Denim Mash-Ups Are a “Do”
Jeans are getting a chic Frankenstein treatment with different styles of denim blended together, like light wash pockets on dark wash jeans or a strip of dark denim running down the sides of your lighter-hued jeans. This rough mixture look is not for the faint of denim heart but adds a super-chic style element for those who want to break out of basic.
High-Fashion Hems Are Here
Hems feeling a tad ho-hum? These are getting a twist, too, with lace-up, splits and even bow detail all poised to finish your denim look with a little quirky personality. Try bow-hem skinnies with edgier outfit elements like a moto jacket.
They’re Back: Studs, Pearls and Yes, Even a Little Sparkle
Feminine pearls peppered at the pocket, edgy studs on the hem—these not-so-subtle add-ons can really push your aesthetic agenda. If you’re dressing for a night out, reach for denim with these eye-catching details and add a slinky camisole and a modern block heel but look equally at home with your comfiest tee and sneakers for a day of running errands.
