Cool-girl denim embellishments, whether painted on or sewn, have been gaining serious steam lately. It’s my favorite denim trend of the season, in fact. Joe’s jeans has a version in their fall 2015 collection, and the look has been all over the streets of New York, London and Milan during fashion month.
This is another of those trends that we’ve seen in previous decades, executed in a way that now makes me cringe a little (faux gems and glitter and such). But the current looks are far enough on the side of punk rock that perhaps we won’t feel badly about our choices in five years.
