Elle magazine recently ran a special on denim trends for 2012. And, like most gals, I have a lot of denim in my closet. Denim jackets, jeans galore, and even a great sleeveless denim dress that’s quite a few seasons old.
But denim for 2012 has taken a very, umm… interesting turn. Some of the highlights (or maybe I should say lowlights?) include high-waisted denim trousers, slouchy denim shorts, maxi skirts, metallic embellished or patchwork jeans, denim trench coats, and even denim overalls (yes, I said overalls). I can assure you that none of these items will be gracing my walk-in any time this century!
Luckily, there is one denim trend that I was really excited to see — the return of floral denim. I say return, because I well remember the first time around (in the late 1990’s). I had an adorable pastel pink floral denim jacket and several pairs of floral jeans.
Now that I am a little older, I still like the idea of floral denim. It’s feminine. It’s flirty. And, somehow it’s a bit dressier than standard blue. But, I will steer away from anything too bold, bright or graphic and leave that to the ‘tweens and teens! I’ve highlighted a few of my top choices above.
What do you think? Will you wear floral denim this fall?
