The denim saree trend, which was kickstarted by Indian designer Anubha Jain, and further popularised by fashionista Sonam Kapoor, has lent a whole new dimension to not just the traditional Indian wear but even the denim. Drape it in a traditional style or go funky and drape it with shirts or high waist denim trousers to make a unique denim style statement.
Deconstruct the Denim
So what to do with your old jeans while you adopt all these new denim trends? Well, simply deconstruct it – cut it, sew it, bleach it, colour it, and give your boring old pair of denim trouser a brand-new look. The deconstructed denim is a huge trend and can be easily produced through a DIY project. If DIY is not quite your thing then hit the market and pick up something that pleases you the most. From raw-hems, patchwork, huge pockets, obscurely placed rips, ruffles to embellished embroidery… there is lots to pick and choose from.
