I’m pretty sure DIY-ers and DIY-triers can agree that the patch trend is the most fun fashion has had in a while. The personalized effect is equal parts fashion forward and nostalgic and anyone can pull it off.
My favorite take on the patchwork trend are the jackets. They sort of remind me of something I would make (or try to make) as a kid. They’re just so much fun and you can throw one on over the simplest outfit and not need a statement shoes or any accessories to feel put together.
Think you can’t make these work? Think again. Try styling them with a simple tank or classic button down blouse for a look that’s more streetstyle than school girl.
High end designers and affordable brands have been adding tons of patches into their collections, especially when it comes to accessories. I like the way they add a playful touch to classic handbag shapes and fabrics.
To get a really personalized look (and the most bang for your buck) consider buying patches and applying them to some of your old clothes. Remember more is more and don’t forget to tag me in your creations.
