DIY: Patched Denim Jacket

If you saw our previous post, you would know that we love the new (old) 90s inspired embroidered patches trend. It’s such a DIY-able project, we just had to make our own patched jacket. From runway to street style, this trend is the perfect way to express yourself and we’ll show you how.

Embroidered Patch Trend Inspiration

Fashion moves forward by looking back. This time, the reminiscence of brands like Phillip Lim, Gucci, Alice and Olivia, Valentino and Marc Jacobs, brings us ultra cool, delightfully unique, patched outfits. Retrofitting everything from jackets to playsuits with patches that are cheeky, rebellious or just plain adorable (think unicorns) unearthed this easy DIY-able trend of the 90s, much to our delight. We dare you to resist the urge to make your own patched jackets or jeans after looking at these fine examples of ‘patching’:
