HOW TO STYLE YOUR PATCHES:
EVEN though these trendy decorations are popular on jackets, they can be used in a number of creative ways. Add detail on the back pockets of your favourite jeans or any part of your jeans in fact.
Add a bit of character to a simple handbag or backpack. Or follow in Gucci’s footsteps and place them on your sneakers.
Other than the obvious denim jacket, bomber and leather jackets make for a great alternative as a canvas for your embroidered patches.
But like any fashion trend it’s important NOT to go overboard. Keep it simple; try not to wear too many different trends at the same time and turn into a fashion disaster.
The same goes for the amount of patches. Just because there’s a variety of themes to choose from, it doesn’t mean you have to use all of them on one item.
Of course there’s no harm in mixing them up – classic cartoons with a bit of glam or military award patches with quirky emoticons, for example.
Your badges are meant to make a statement so don’t wear them with crazy patterns which can draw attention away from them.
