Playing around with patches..

As I mentioned in my last post, fashion is all about details at the moment! This blazer caught my eye during a recent online
shopping binge *ahem* blog research session. I am a huge fan of blazers as it is, so I was immediately drawn to this fun patched piece. Floral embroidery aside, I wasn’t a huge fan of the patches trend (although I do love it on bags it seems… proof here and here!) until I saw this blazer. I think the navy colour paired with the gold and silver detail makes it a little more glam, and probably more age appropriate, than bright colourful patches on denim, for example. Of course I styled it with a simple white tee and denim, which is my number one way to style a blazer.
For a modern take on this trend, I think less is more. Adding a couple of fun and quirky patches can be a super cheap way to update your look, but be careful not to overdo it.. you don’t want to look like you just stepped out of the 90’s!!
What do you think, will you be adding patches to your clothes?
