NYFW Trend Alert: Patchwork!

October 16, 2016

I noticed another fun trend at New York Fashion Week …. patchwork!


Denim, mixed fabrics, mixed prints, monochromatic … all kinds of variations on the patchwork theme!

I think this is fun trend that’s just starting to gain momentum.  That’s always the perfect time to buy a piece for your wardrobe, right?

Some of my favorites available right now …



What do you think of the patchwork trend?  Are some of you getting 70’s flashbacks? I can remember being about ten years old and having the coolest bell bottom patchwork jeans!  I wish I had them now. Not that they’d fit!

(I’d say I’ll find a photo to share, but I know whenever I face my boxes of pictures in the basement, time is sucked away and next thing I know hours have flown by reminiscing and I still haven’t found whatever I was looking for!)

Check out another NYFW trend: Yellow!

    Oooh…i’m quite happy for the return of this trend. I have some patchwork boots in the back of my closet just waiting for the chance to come out again!

    You picked some nice items. Not sure about the jeans. They do remind me of my childhood but I didn’t like it back then. Ha ha, know what you mean about looking at pictures, time flies.

      Right? I’m always taken on a long trip down memory lane and I forget what I was supposed to be looking for!

    I love a patchwork in a muted or neutral shade, like many of these designer pieces. Great round-up! xo

    I’ve always liked patchwork and I’m glad to see it trending again in more sophisticated styles than just patched up jeans. Thanks for sharing and inspiring.

    Dawn, you pulled some great runway and ready to wear examples. This post has me wanting to pull my suede patchwork skirt out of the closet, but the weather decided to turn back to summer this week. I’ll just swoon over these photos in the meantime!
