I was in a book store one day catching up on my weekly free read when I overheard a young couple chatting while flipping through some fashion magazines. I didn't mean to eavesdrop but they were quite loud so I couldn't help it. Basically the guy just could not understand how fickle and unstable trend can be. They were discussing how one time she went crazy with the ripped jeans trend and now she was thinking of patching them up! It was quiet amusing actually, I was trying so hard to stifle a giggle. I knew right then that I had to do a piece on this trend they were talking about.
I must have been in my cocoon too long that I actually missed this news.. cool jeans are ripped no more! So, I went home and did some research, start looking through Pinterest and there they were, hundreds of them. Honestly, in my opinion, this trend can be kind of cool if done properly meaning it should look like you really are trying to salvage your favorite pair of jeans and had it done yourself like the one in the last picture. It oozes the right amount of laid-back bohemian/hippy flair that I love. The moment it start looking like the patch quilt, then I seriously feel it is overdone and a big NO.
Anyway, back to the couple in the bookstore, I can understand how bizarre and incoherent it might be to some on how trend can be so inconsistent and absurd sometimes, but unfortunately that is the funny thing about trend, it is suppose to be that way, always evolving. You either get it or you don't but always take trend with a pinch of salt. Lucky for me Captain seems to have no problem understanding.
Now your turn, what do you think of this patched jeans trend? Does your man 'dig' the ups and down of trend? I would love to hear your story so do tell! :)
