40 Unexpected Denim Designs

From Jean Winter Jackets to Distressed Denim Kicks

— January 3, 2013 — Fashion
Jeans are a wardrobe staple, but these daring denim designs are perfect for injecting a little denim into your everyday lifestyle. Denim is a strong cotton by-product that dates all the way back to the turn of the last century as a perfect material for workers and rebels to wear with confidence. Since then, denim has evolved to become a multi-use material that can be found across all spectrums of design from home decor to electronic cases.

Additionally, there are a number of designs within this collection that make use of old denim jeans and upcycle them into new products like shoes, bags and tablet cases. So, take inspiration from these daring denim designs and cut up an old pair into a fresh, new item that will reincarnate your jeans into a tough accessory.
