Patchwork denim … what’s the scoop?
You know the fashion biz – just when you think you have a handle on a trend, they like to mess with your mind and switch up the game plan a notch or two. So it goes with the boyfriend jeans deal this spring. If you thought you had it all figured out – just enough slouch in the crotch area, versus just the right rippage quota in the distressed area, when shazam – out of nowhere comes a new take on the trend – the patchwork denim boyfriend jean.
Eek! How’s a gal to keep up? Well the good news is, that most high street stores have cottoned on to the notion, so getting yourself ‘back on the bike’ trend-wise is not too costly. Take a peek at H&M or Karen Millen or Topshop if you fancy dipping your toe into the patchwork denim party this season at a reasonable price.
Patchwork denim … how to wear it.
To be fair I take very little persuading to hoick on a comfy pair of jeans at the best of times, so this patchwork denim lark has been an easy challenge in my regular Tuesday Trends to Try series.
I’ve opted for some light wash J.Crew Stevie jeans by Goldsign and styled them for a weekend ready vibe. Nautical top with embellished neckline is J.Crew … similar here. Bomber jacket is Whistles but similar here at The Outnet.
Shoes are Dries Van Noten, bag Whistles …. similar here.
As with any boyfriend jean this season, they don’t have to be relegated to weekend wear. Here’s a couple of ideas on pimping them up for the office and evening … depending on how loose your office wear rules are of course!
