The Denim We Didn't Expect to See on Fashion Girls This Spring

There’s one denim style we never expected to see this spring, but lately it’s all over our Instagram feeds: embellished denim. We’re talking about those patchwork jeans and embroidered denim jackets you probably wore sometime years ago, but now they’re back. Of course, today’s versions are a little more grown-up—even Gucci is on board—but they have the same retro aesthetic and whimsy you remember.

Fashion girls might not have returned to colored jeans for spring, but they're loving patchwork and embroidered denim. The pieces recall vintage styles from the ’60s and ’70s that would feel right at home at a music festival. With Coachella just weeks away, we’re bound to see the style worn by celebrities and fashion girls out in the desert. Want to see how street style stars like Chiara Ferragni and Aimee Song are wearing embellished denim?
