Denim Trends FW05 I: Embroidered Jeans

Fabulous denim, ie. jeans that cost $150+, are always on our "Want/ Must have" lists, so the smart people behind the jeans bring us something slightly new every season. Maybe it's the Miu Miu effect, it seems like many denim brands are putting out embroidered jeans this season. For jeans, they are unusually colorful and very upbeat. Some of them are fantastic, and the others are just... sort of tacky.

Antik Denim Flared Saddle-Blanket Jean: This one is shockingly colorful not only of the backpockets, but also the whole jean. It's great if you're going for the lux hippie look, but not so great for this season's feminine, dark trends.

Antik Denim Floral Jeans: These backpockets are special in that they are different -in a stylish way. I like the simple colors of the embroideries and the patterns. This will look great with some of those fifties-inspired flowy tops which are being sold in many stores' fall collections.

Chip & Pepper Sorority Girl Nirvana Jeans, Rainy River: This pair is even more hippie-styled than the first Antik denim one shown, except this one is more laid-back and effortless.

Chip & Pepper Sorority Girl Nirvana, Sweetheart: Sceams 'I'm Miss spoilt & popular'.

True Religion Bobby Flared Jeans: This pair is soo pretty! This pair would actaully look amazing with an oh-so-fashionable simple white/ ivory Victorian shirt or a black voluminous top. So sweet and darling!

Embroidered jeans are obviously much harder to match outfits with than simple jeans. If the embroideries are colorful, the key is to wear plain-colored tops. Limit your accessories and do remember to match your shoes as well!

So are embroidered jeans worth buying? My verdict is that if you're looking to buy a pair of staple jeans to last more than a season, then no. I'm sticking to plain jeans for the sake of my budget. But if you really like them (and you're rich,) then go ahead and indulge!

I saw these in carpenter style on a guy with a queen card embroidered on the back pocket. They were totally original and very cute. He also had on a white leather jacket. As my friend commented he looked like he belonged in New York...

hi girls! maybe i'd like to wear the embroyded jeans if i was gonna stick to the hippie-boho-bobo-i'm so-like-sienna's style but i just think they are not right for this season (any of them).

with all the oh-so-chic & slim new styles why ruin it with so much colour and drawings of discussable taste...maybe if you're really into the russian/eastern europe inspiration you can use those...like once... lol

I think those embroidered jeans look good with plain bandeus.

i think they are cute--plain denim gets a little boring. for those who want something more preppy, lilly pulitzer is featuring embroidered jeans this fall. www.lillypulitzer.com

I think the small all-over prints are cute ("palm classics.")

clozac: are you working in the lillypulitzer advertising department?? by palm classics do you really mean those with little green palm trees splashed all over it?? or those with little puppies??? girl...you're starting to freak me out! i don´t want to be mean or anything but...those jeans are only wearable if you're like...under 12 and you're mother still tells you what to wear... if you're really into embroyded jeans you should stick to these pairs picked by harrods girl... trust me.

Okay, chick 'n chic, I will stick with the "embroyded" jeans of "discussable taste." LOL And if you don't like something, by all means, do not buy it, and invest the money you save in a good dictionary.

well girl...sorry for the embroyded/embroidered thing...but:

discuss
verb discussed, discussing

1. To examine or consider something in speech or writing.

Thesaurus: debate, consider, deliberate.
2. To talk or argue about something in conversation.

Thesaurus: debate, confer about, talk over, thrash out.
Derivative: discussable
adj

Etymology: 14c: from Latin discutere, discussum to shake to pieces.

or...:

dis·cuss ( P ) Pronunciation Key (d-sks)
tr.v. dis·cussed, dis·cuss·ing, dis·cuss·es
To speak with another or others about; talk over.
To examine or consider (a subject) in speech or writing.

[Middle English discussen, to examine, from Anglo-Norman discusser, from Latin discussus, past participle of discutere, to break up : dis-, apart; see dis- + quatere, to shake; see kwt- in Indo-European Roots.]

dis·cussa·ble or dis·cussi·ble adj.
dis·cusser n.
Synonyms: discuss, argue, debate, dispute, contend

(did you even googled it to see if it existed?? well, it does exist).

i'm portuguese, so if i make any mistakes in my english it's perfectly acceptable (worthy of acceptance or satisfactory, satisfactory: meeting requirements...) but those palm classic jeans...they are not forgivable (excusable: easily excused or forgiven). so i think it's better to finish this embroidered-discussion here :)

No, I did not "googled (sic)" it. I offered the link as purely an example of the trend, which was referred to as "just...not right for this season (any of them.)" LOL

omg lololol you're so mean! i guess i should feel fortunate for having you as my grammar teacher and not my personal-stylist!! thank u so much :D i'd really appreciate if you'd continue to correct my english when i make mistakes (which clearly are a lot) :)

I won't correct your grammar if you don't go out of your way to be insulting. By the way, I don't work for LP, and I realize their products are aimed at the country-club and polo set, and certainly aren't for everyone. I like many styles, from boho to English tweeds to preppy, and I can see something to like in almost everything. When I'm out and about, I'll admire a beautiful, creative ethnic style, with a touch of handcrafted originality, as much as a sleek, professional suit, or even the innocently funky retro-preppy look with its bright colors, cables and clean-cut classicism. That's why I love this blog--it's about all kinds of fashion.

i'm not specially pleased to have this kind of confrontation in a blog (or elsewhere)- i think it's ridiculous and i'm beginning to feel really embarassed about this! being raised in a conservative and classic catholic family i've always known what preppy & classic style is. i think that lilly pulitzer might have some cute clothes (though i'd prefer clothes from european brands like lacoste, pringle or burberry). but unfortunately i must say those pants don't resemble any style i know ...i don't mean to offend or insulte you but they are really kitsch (that's only my humble opinion, don't take it so personally next time, ok?) hope this means PEACE now :)

i like the embroidery on the back pocket. when it runs down the leg, it looks cheesy and dated (late nineties)

Hi, I was just blog surfing and found you! If you are interested, go see my 1980s fashion related site. It pretty much covers 1980s fashion stuff. I guess you may find something of interest.

i'm a bit late...but am SOOO laughing at the L.P. embroidered jeans debate!!!!

I think they are super cute, for a certain type. As with most LP clothes you have to really BE "That Type", or the clothes wind up wearing you. Know what I mean?

I love, love, love all things preppie: LP, Lacoste, JCrew, etc... I was born and raised in California, so God only knows where I get it.

None of my friends would dream of dressing the way I do, and that's OK. They can work the "boho" look (or whatever comes next!!) It looks much better on them. Besides, everybody is used to my "fish out of water" type of charm!

Ok, so maybe this debate is over, but 4 me it's new LOL!!! Okay, I like most Lily Pulitzer clothes, especialy the ones with big continuing prints (http://www.lillypulitzer.com/Minnies/Cameron-Printed-Pant/invt/69568) Like these, they are very cute. But the ones with little palm trees? All right I am known in my school for having a "Strawberry Shortcake" "Bright and Happy" "Cheerfull" or "origanal" sense of style, but even for me, those are a little bit much. I don't think they are only wearable for "those under twelve", with certain tops, and faces, hair styles ect. I guess they could look pretty cute! I still think that the ones with a fairy (above) and the ones with the coral print (my link) are SUPER CUTE!!!
