Patch It Up

Has anyone else noticed that embroidered patches are coming back in a big way? While haphazardly patched up jeans and jackets were once the realm of punk and alternative fashion, this no longer seems to be the case. The look these days is decidedly more preppy with current season collections from local favourites like Gorman, Salasai, and House of Cards all featuring garments with patched details. If you’re feeling crafty, you could just grab a plain piece of clothing and DIY your own design. You don’t have to look particularly hard to find cute and quirky patches either – just look at the ones I’ve found here! If iron on patches seem like too permanent an option, don’t forget you can also find temporary alternatives in lapel pins and brooches.
