Summer marks the beginning of official Denim Season in fashion, be it donned via jackets, jeans or other clothing. Take this SS17 as ideal excuse and update your collection to include the latest of cotton crafted trends; embroidered denim jackets.
The embroidered jacket is a chameleon of styles, mixing vintage vibes with a recurring freshness which allows to befit itself to seasons of late. Patterns incorperated through this embroidery can take form of daring designs or traditional tapestry, dependent on the wearers own flair.
The detail on this denim allows for a softness to be found in an otherwise edgy and originally masculine style. Such androgyny to the trend is happily welcomed from designers, who have gone full steam into embellishing their jean fabric designs with intricate stitching and beautiful designs covetable to the masses. Everyone from Kate Moss to Victoria Beckham has been spied working the embroidered look throughout SS17 shows, setting the tone for our current attires of choice.
A leather–look skirt adds a welcome clash of texture to keep things interesting, adhering to the casual nature of the jacket yet adding a certain edge to set apart style. Likewise light velvet can be considered for warmer days and should not be pigeon-holed as a winter only affair.
Lurex glitter socks add a juxtaposing casual yet fun addition in the subtler notes of accessorising a look, offset with some complementary mermaid sheen oil slick Converse sneakers. Adding a sporty shoe brings this look back to daytime, allowing a resultant look which earns style kudos yet is comfortable and wearable for daily activity (the ultimate goal).
A checked backpack as this Vivienne Westwood Derby Exhibition one brings girly charm which noticeably matches that of the pastel hued embroidery. This completes the general theme of city luxe meets sporty chic, creating a desirable endgame.
The final touch is to add brown tinted sunglasses, a seasonal must. The pictured pair draw the eye in with a retro-inspired rounded look and translucent frames, taking oversized to new realms. A velvet choker additionally adds character, working with the backpack to reference a 90s resurgence.
This is but one way to style the embroidered denim jacket, we would love to see your take on the trend so be sure to share with us on instagram @style_etc.
