Whatever previous notions you have of denim accessories, be prepared for Spring 2016 to do away with them once and for all. Denim is back in full force in the accessories realm, and these handbags and shoes aren't like the frayed, patchwork versions that came before. And that's great, because the look is shaping up to be a warm-weather staple.
Denim handbags and shoes may sound too casual and sloppy, but this season's crop looks surprisingly sophisticated. Embellished denim bags can be true works of art, as you'll notice on Valentino's and Stella McCartney's versions, and even more simple implementations look surprisingly clean and tailored.
Denim footwear also works really well because of the modern ways the material is used. Instead of playing to traditional ideas of how the fabric should be styled, designers have given it a new life in clean, well-edited pumps and sandals that treat it like a high-end textile.
