I've seen a lot of my favorite bloggers wearing elbow patch tops, and walking around downtown I've spotted a few people wearing them too. I thought, hmmm....how would I wear that? So, here are 3 of my favorite items with patches, and some ways I styled them. How would you wear the trend?
Blazer: I absolutely love this blazer from H&M, especially the back! Also, the gray color goes so well with the brown patches! I thought to pair the blazer with a striped long-sleeve, light wash skinny jeans, and riding boots. For a touch of sparkle, I added a beautiful glitter clutch to the mix. I think the stripes and the clutch stand out so well in the outfit, and can take place of any necklace or bracelet. I also really like the combination of the blazer and the boots!
Sweatshirt: My favorite thing about this sweatshirt is its simplicity, and I really love how the colors come together so well without clashing! I took the road of adding dark wash skinny jeans to the top, a simple plain/neutral scarf, a gorgeous shoulder bag, and a stack of bracelets to accessorize. My favorite part of this whole outfit has to be the Wellington Boots! I'm actually starting to like these even more, and they bring back memories of when I was little and I had my tiny pink pair(though we called them gum boots) that I'd run around in. I just love that yellow!
Cardigan: Cardigans are such an amazing go-to outfit in any closet! And I feel like this is just such a classic outfit. Denim, tartan, and loafers. But oh-no, it might go deeper! I absolutely love the deep-denim color of the shirt, and that tartan skirt is so cute! For accessories, I chose to put in a chain-link necklace for extra bling. I also really like the studded loafers, and I've recently worn mine with some socks, so I added that in too along with! The adorable little shoulder bag from H&M is also one of my favorite things in the outfit!
