Style Inspo: Embroidered Denim

I’ve heard of fashion being cyclical, but I always imagined that was in reference to decades. I never imagined that “cyclical” could refer to wearing the same things I did in the fourth grade, but here we are in 2017 and what do I see?

Grown women in gummy shoes! What’s worse, grown women in gummy shoes and socks!

Backpacks are replacing real bags! They’re not even practical backpacks- this generation of your elementary school carryall costs more than a week’s paycheck and fits your phone, one credit card, and maybe half a stick of gum.

And of course, embroidered denim. Oh, you bought new jeans? Do they have carefully stitched flowers adorning one bum cheek? No? What is this, 2015? Dammit Pam, get it together!

But of course, who am I to judge- I recently went to the supermarket in a tweed blazer with shoulder pads high enough to make a linebacker jealous. I’m on the opposite end of the spectrum. Instead of imitating youth, my stylistic choices have geriatric tendencies.

Anyway, because the New Year’s resolution I should have made but didn’t probably would have said to try new things, I thought I’d try this trend. Here’s some inspo to get you in the mood to buy butterfly-embroidered jorts and also some shoppable options at the end. Excuse me whilst I go embroider every article of denim I own. Or, more accurately, ask my mother to do it because I failed Home Ec.

  17. I remember when I HAD to have embroidered denim from Limited Too… I’m not sure if I could pull off embroidered jeans, but I may wait it out until spring and try it on a pair of denim shorts.

    PS – That denim shift dress you featured is amazing and reminds me of one my mom had in the 90’s!
