STYLE ADVICE: Personalized Denim

If you’ve been keeping up with me this semester, you know that I’m all for the wave of personalized denim flooding the fashion industry. Because May has been such a bummer weather-wise, I’m still loving all things denim for the end of the semester. Whether it’s pins, paint, or patches, denim upgrades are all you need for adding a touch of personal style right now.

This Fashionista’s outfit is hopeful for warmer weather in her pair of patch-embellished jeans from Gap. The light wash jeans have colorful butterfly and parrot patches, on the hip and knee, respectively. To complete her look, she pairs the jeans with a gray shirt with a stitched “C” on the pocket. By matching two different personalized pieces, this look is reflective of her personality, while being tastefully unique.

For accessories, she kept it simple in order to let the patches and the embellished initial stand on their own. She wears a plain silver bangle and a few basic rings. Her tan suede loafers are the perfect choice of shoe for the awkward in-between seasons moment. They are super-versatile, making for a great pair springtime shoes that can be paired with jeans, a skirt, or a dress. Her beauty look is soft and natural, with gorgeous loose waves framing her face.

Head to your favorite store or DIY a pair of jeans with a couple of unique patches to get this look yourself. Embellished jeans are an awesome addition to any wardrobe, no matter your style. Wear them to brunch or switch it up by embellishing a pair of black or dark wash jeans.
