Elena Bonvicini takes the phrase "one man's trash is another man's treasure" to a whole new level. Her love for thrift shopping and finding hidden gems was put to good use when she decided to turn her favorite finds into upcycled denim pieces. This all started in her high school days, and the reworked denim shorts she crafted gained so much fanfare she was selling them out of her locker. The brand has since evolved into a fashion-insider favorite recently seen on stars such as Justin Bieber and Bella Hadid.

If you briefly scroll through her latest collection, you'll find every summer micro-trend in stock. Since she's so ahead of the trend cycle, I had to ask her which one she's shopping for right now. While she's sending many old favorites, such as bootcut jeans and high-rise miniskirts, to her storage unit, you can't go wrong by adopting her five favorite trends into your collection. Your summer requires the best denim pieces, so shop the below trends.

Associate Editor

Sierra Mayhew was always destined to work in fashion, but she didn't know it at first. Growing up with no choice but to wear a rotation of school uniforms and activewear, her love for fashion really blossomed when she moved away for college and was able to finally define her very own personal style. Shortly thereafter, she interned at Elle magazine and instantly knew that editorial was for her. After graduating from the University of Notre Dame, she worked for ShopBazaar, contributing regularly to, and finally made her way to Who What Wear, where she is an associate editor. When she’s not working, you can catch her always trying to catch a flight, rollerblading through New York City traffic, or exploring the latest luxury vintage boutique.
