Work that Patch

A reoccurring trend throughout the years is patchwork, every time more elevated and modern than the last season. Patchwork is needlework in which small pieces of cloth in different designs, colors or textures are sewn together into a one of a kind garment. Luxury brands like Chloé, Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent have featured patchwork on their collections as well as the streetwear brand “Supreme” which released a collection  that included pieces made with this technique. Patchwork can be used with anything imaginable, denim, plaid, floral, color blocking, you name it, this technique isn’t going anywhere anytime soon…

Now Trending: Flared Jeans

Flared Jeans are making a comeback this spring/summer 2016 thanks to the revival of the 70’s. So you know what that means? Yes, time to put away those skinny jeans for a while and get yourself a brand new pair of flared jeans. For the ultimate trendy boho/hippie look pair them with a loose printed shirt, if you want to stay true to the 70’s look pair the trousers with a bold printed fitting shirt and some outrageous platforms. Another thing you can wear with your flared jeans is stripped shirts, either ribbed or a basic knit. If you’re looking for a more modern vibe to your jeans try a leotard (bodysuit), these will hug your every curve and seem like a regular tank-top. Here are some ways to style your 70’s flared jeans..

Trend Alert: Denim on Denim

So Spring is coming, and you know what that means? We can finally shed our heavy winter coats and start using lighter clothes. Just yesterday I went to the mall and noticed a sense of peaceful spring arriving to the stores which brings me to today’s topic: Denim. Denim jeans are a must in every human beings closet so why not pair those jeans with a denim shirt? Too much? No! It’s about matching each piece with the other by taking into consideration the shade of the denim, and of course the style you’re going for. For Spring I suggest light shades of denim, tears in the denim and even bleach stains. Button down shirts are most common for this denim look but don’t be afraid to experiment with different silhouettes and fits. Skinny jeans at ankle length are super in, as well as the boyfriend jean and the bold denim skirt; the denim possibilities are endless! Here are some of my favorite Denim on Denim looks..
