Classic jeans are closet staples, but sometimes something with a little personality and twist is called for.  Embellished jeans can be subtle adding just a little extra flair, or a bold style statement all their own.  Available in a variety of leg styles and washes, added touches can be anything from artful patches, hand painted or printed designs, to studs and embroidered designs.

Certain styles that include elaborate embellishments such as gemstone studs, embroidery, and appliqués down legs add more of a BoHo vibe. Common bohemian designs include floral and ethnic patterns. Others with simple pocket designs or rhinestone studding have more trend influences. As the plus market heats up, expect more style variety availability for unique personal style expressions.

Frequently worn with trendy or  BoHo tops or cardigan sweater dusters, these jeans are bold statements for women who enjoy expressing their personal and unique style.

Young trend setters will find plenty of jeans with embroidered and embellished pockets and tougher edged studding from retailers such as Torrid which offers size 12 to 30W.  Australian trendy retailer City Chic is becoming a favorite of trendy fashionistas with unique items in size 12 to 24W.  Look especially for the Alice + You label at Asos for ultra cool embroidered denim pieces for size 14 to 24W.  

Meanwhile, Silver Jeans are popular with trendy fashionistas and often sport embroidered pockets along with the latest washes, finishes, and cuts and can be purchased from many of the department stores such as Dillard's.

 Lane Bryant has been including more embellishments on pockets, patches and specialty finishes recently for size 14 to 28W, with the occasional pair of trendier patchwork jeans available from the main line.  Ulla Popken has been amping up its style game with both Eco-Fashion and European influenced trend conscious pieces that have more of a bohemian vibe for size 12 to 34W.  Many of the pieces coming in coordinate extremely well with embellished jeans, with few pairs occasionally also working into the mix.  For trendier options including items such as splatter paint jeans, check their tab for the "young fashion" tab which are listed separately.
