DENIM DETAILS: Embroidered Denim

Despite doing a major overhaul with my clothing a few months ago there are still some pieces I hang on to for sentimental reasons, like these jeans below. They have no stretch to them,which gives their age away as nowadays most jeans have lycra or elastane added for comfort! I updated mine by snipping the bottoms ala Vetement style and am considering adding a few more patches but I’m not that practical (unlike my daughter who is a wizard with needlepoint and sewing!). She’ll probably be embarressed with the mention, but her pieces are gorgeous and worth a peek: andie reeves

This season sees denim being updated by colourful threads and I’ve selected a few images I loved off Pinterest to inspire you to pimp your denim:

Simple detail on the cuff

How gorgeous is this!

Mixing beading with embroidery threads is worth trying.

I love the use of colourful, textured wool instead of threads.

Embroidering down the seam seems like a doable place to start.

Go bold or…

I love this!
