There are plenty of style trends that come and go, that aren't for me. But the patch trend - fun, embellished patches I'm seeing all over denim lately - was a trend I couldn't wait to try. I've always liked distressed denim because jeans without distressing often feel too "plain," so perhaps it makes sense in that context that I'd want my jeans to be a walking doodle pad. I know this trend will not necessarily be a crowd pleaser (which is kind part of the fun?!) but I'm giving it a go this fall, styling it two ways. The first look with a white peplum top and red shoes is for dinner, and the second look with sneakers is for errands. Would you ever try the patch denim trend?
