Let’s get patchy for fall! That’s right! The 1970’s trend is back. This means patchwork apparel, and accessories, are hotter than hot for the fall 2015 season. Love that!
Patches are a fun trend for the fall season. They allow you mix and match patterns, colors, and textures you normally would not put together. This trend is not for the matchy-matchy girl!
You can find patches on everything imaginable for fall; or, you can head down to the fabric store, buy a few scraps or remnants, and put a few patches on an old pair of boyfriend jeans, a denim jacket. . .the possibilities are endless! Patches = fun!
Some designers are showing haphazard patches for fall, while others are showing more organized patchwork; such as the dress in the middle of the graphic above. Organized patchwork is fabulous for a casual office atmosphere, or night on the town. Haphazard patchwork is ideal for weekends, and every fun activity you can think of!
I have a vintage blouse from the 1970’s which is patchwork; you can read the story behind it here. I would also love to add one or two denim patchwork pieces to my autumn wardrobe. What do you think of the patchwork trend for fall? Will you patch up?
