Say goodbye to ripped knees — eyelets are in. This style may seem slight but it packs a major punch. Tap into the distinctive trend for a hole-in-one ensemble.

THE PATCHWORK

The patchwork jean is for the fashion-forward girl. Play is save with just a sprinkling of detail around the thigh or take centre stage with an all over look - either way your denim will steal the show.
