35. Denim Never Dies

So here we are, winter season, and what is prominent and continues to be prominent from generation to generation? The lovely denim. Sometimes I wonder if denim will ever cease to exist. Two big trends have definitely hit the denim table the past few months:

1. Patchwork Denim
2. Denim on Denim

These two used to be quite iffy to tamper with in the eyes of designers, but we have seen the resurrection of these trends everywhere from Chloé's runway (who combined a fabulous patchwork button down with denim patchwork on bottom) to Louis Vuitton's handbags (in which I didn't entirely care for).

Picture 1: Cheap Monday
Picture 2: Chloe
Picture 3: DIY

If it's difficult to find the perfect pair for you, it's a rather simple trend to master. You know all those too small, too tight, too old, and too out of style pairs of denim laying in the back of your closet? Cut them up. Detail the pockets and the knees. The best part of it all is the fact that it's personal, and if you don't want to go overboard, you don't have to. And if you do, more power to you.

  1. Thank you! I wish I could find better patchwork denim photos, but I ran out of time.
