It’s patch-up time for di­vas

If you thought fash­ion patches were only about fix­ing holes in your jeans, you cer­tainly missed out on one of the hottest retro trends that’s back in fash­ion. Stylis­tas are adding a pop punch to their den­ims and jack­ets with the ‘90s favourite ac­ces­sory.

Bollywood ac­tors Anushka Sharma, Alia Bhatt and Jac­que­line Fer­nan­dez re­cently rocked fun and quirky patches to make a style state­ment. Ex­perts say the trend was bound to re­turn. “The patch­work trend lends it­self to pop cul­ture. It made a style rev­o­lu­tion long ago. Its come­back proves that fash­ion is a re­flec­tion of the so­ci­ety and por­trays its ever-evolv­ing moods,” says de­signer Nikhil Mehra.

For stylist Vikram Seth, fash­ion patches give you the free­dom to ex­per­i­ment. “They are great for col­lege stu­dents. You can even cre­ate DIY patches to speak your mind out. From cam­ou­flage to cheeky emoji stick-ons — young peo­ple are wear­ing patches in the most fun ways,” he says.

For de­signer Nida Mah­mood, patch­work den­ims are an all-time favourite. “Patches add a spe­cial flavour to your den­ims. And, for the de­signer, they cre­ate a great play­ground. One has so many op­tions to play with unique looks — the pos­si­bil­i­ties are sim­ply end­less,” she says.
