I'll admit I've never been a huge denim person and have never kept more than 5 pairs of jeans in my wardrobe at once. I may have PTSD from the days of Hollister / A&F / American Eagle when there was so little variation in styles and you had to try on 20 pairs to find the right ones. We've come a long way but to find something I love (AG Jeans) you have to shell out at least $150 or get really lucky. Personally I'll opt for my dresses & skirts.
Yet this year there has been an explosion of new denim creations that I've perked up to the idea of getting MULTIPLE pieces.
There's the patchwork pieces that mix both 70s and 90s trends like the tube top set from Akira below that was immediately a when my friend Emily tried it on in Chicago. A few of her friends on snapchat immediately asked where the outfit was from.
Then finally the immaculate distressing of this season is blowing me away - from subtle fringed ends to full on haggardness I. LOVE. IT. ALL. 2017 has shown creativity breaking through and I'm really seeing it here. One caveat is that people can simmer on the over-ripping of jeans and under butt rips, it looks trashy and should only be used for a cheeky effect. I honestly might heave if I see another choker + but rip + bomber jacket combo :D
But now let me upgrade you xoxo
