Time toUpgrade your Classic Denim Jacket to latest trends

A denim jacket is a wardrobe staple that traverses all seasons. A jean jacket looks good whether it’s the only denim piece in an outfit or it’s paired with jeans for a double (or even triple) denim look. The last few seasons have seen classic blue jeans get an unbasic makeover with pompoms, fringe, embellishment and patches jazzing up the humble fabric. Now, it’s time for denim jackets to get an upgrade.

For this season’s denim jacket, almost anything goes and the styles are more extra than ever. The recent runways displayed a variety of standout jean jackets. Ashley Williams offered a bleached denim jacket with black tie-dye, while Adam Selman decorated the sleeve hems of a true blue jean jacket with a floral design. Coach and Elie Saab went for full-on embellishment with nothing considered off-limits. Beading, faux feathers, studs, pearly accents and trim were all used — often together.

Off the runways, fashion girls have been embracing the customized look of upgraded denim jackets. Surprise-in-the-back options, patches and unexpected silhouettes proved to be the popular styles on the streets. Those looking to try the trend could DIY their own jacket, but that isn’t necessary because there are so many fantasy options in stores. Embroidery, frills, contrasting fabrics, patches, sequins and even chain mail are all on offer. Pick your favorite style, then wear your next-level denim jacket exactly as you would a classic style — but with a lot more impact.

Think pink when it comes to home decor

Whether it’s wearing it or adding it to your home, pink is really a classic colour with a rich history of applications from designer gowns to roman shade window valances, paint colours and pink home decor accessories.

So, when it comes to home decor, just how are you going to infuse a pink shade into your home? Let me show you…

1. A pink statement couch You don’t have to have an overly-girly home to pick a pink statement couch for your living room. In fact, sometimes a pink sofa works best when it feels completely unexpected, like in a modern living room or even a bedroom.

2. Pink accent pillows  Not ready for a complete pink overhaul? Pink throw pillows offer just the right amount of color, and feel fun and fresh on a living room couch or on the bed. Choose your shade according to your sofa or bed upholstery and watch it brighten up the room from 0 to 100 in seconds!

3. Go bold with a pink neon sign Go the celebrity way! From the likes of Lauren Conrad to Kourtney Kardashian—living space featuring a modern neon sign is quite the rage. Make it the focal point of your living room, put it above your bed, or hang it in your kitchen—there’s really no wrong way to decorate with these guys.

4. Pink flowers The quickest, easiest and cheapest way to add pink to your home is by introducing flowers to your decor. Pink flowers—especially roses or peonies—make a great accent, particularly in an otherwise neutral space.

5. Pink drapes Got a neutral room that you’re looking to punch up? Light pink curtains will do just the trick. 

6. Dare to paint your walls pink If the idea is unsettling, start with your bathroom and choose a softer tone. It is feminine and looks super stunning!

7. Pink appliances Make your kitchen notches cooler with pink appliances. Whether it’s a fridge or a toaster, it’ll add a pop of color to your otherwise dull space.

8. Pink art  Choose a pink piece of art to be the focal point of a chosen room. It’s quirky, fun and super cool. Plus, it won’t be too much to handle, just in case you’re not that big a fan of the color.
