Pre-Fall 16 Trend Flash: Embellished Denim
Forget distressed and ravaged treatments – the newest denim trend demands a more luxe approach.
It’s a trend we first highlighted from the S/S 16 runways, where luxe decorative treatments replaced overtly distressed washes and finishes. Think embroidery placements, playful appliques and novelty studded, sequinned or jewelled placements on mid-washed grounds.
Influences are diverse – from ornate western styling to cute kidult imagery, flora and fauna or traditional folk-inspired looks, making this the perfect denim update for the more junior market.
Work the trend as an instant fashion update for bestselling denim pieces like the button-through or midi skirt, the western jacket and bootcut jeans.
