The patchwork trend is in this Fall, and as always, it will gift you a totally original look. But forget summer cotton prints – appropriately for fall, the patchwork trend is manifesting itself on solid fabrics such as suede, leather, wool, faux fur, satin and tweed.
Any pattern goes, whether it’s checks, animal prints, colour blocks, stripes or embroidery. Get beyond the usual patched jeans or sleeves and mismatch or co-ordinate, mix or contrast, add to clothes, footwear, bags, beanies… We’re sure you’re getting the idea. But you don’t have to do it for yourselves because patchwork was a runway favourite, so check out your favourite retailers now.
