Perfect Patchwork

If your grandma’s quilting skills are what comes to mind at the idea of patchwork, then it’s time to think again because this season the folklore craft has come a long way.

But before we get down to nitty-gritty, one may ask what is patchwork? And how is it defined in fashion?

Patchwork or “pieced work” is a form of needlework that involves sewing together pieces of fabric into a larger design. The larger design is usually based on repeating patterns built up with different fabric shapes and colors.

Remember the times when square denim patches were considered to be the only patchwork to use in your day to day outfits. Currently this trend has taken to the next level, as we see colors, patterns, and textures of patches everywhere.

The secret of wearing patchwork is to keep your outfit fairly basic. Do not overdramatize your outfit. There are variety of fabrics ranging from suede, leather to polyester and silk. Sashé exhibits this trend by wearing dresses paired with ankle-boots and a jacket.

Both looks transition well from summer fashions to the fall season. You know how we roll 😉

Are you bold enough to try this look? Go ahead and give it try! Be creative and patch it up!
