Patch It Up
The easiest and least time-consuming way to upgrade your denim is to add some patches and stickers of your choice. There is a whole variety of patches and stickers for denim in the market. You can add anything to your denim pieces from your favourite cartoon to your go-to slang. Iron on patches are the most convenient and time-efficient ones available.
Rhinestones, studs, beads and sequins… They’re all perfect, if what you’re trying to make your denims pop! You can write your name, your initials or make abstract designs with them. The possibilities are endless. You can find embellishments of different colours, sizes and shapes to add to your denim. Most embellishments available now don’t even require sewing. You can just use a glue gun and dazzle.
Adding a few buttons here and there on your jeans, jackets and skirts never hurt anyone. You probably have a ton of different buttons lying around. Let’s just put them to good use and add them to our denim jacket sleeves, jean side seams and patch pockets.
Stonewash, acid wash, bleach wash or any other denim wash, pairs perfectly with lace trim. You can add lace to the hems of your denims or just border the denim with a suitable lace. Again there is a vast variety of lace to choose from. Personally I feel white lace pairs beautifully with any denim.
