Yes to floral patches!
Last week I attended an event with 1Denim where I was able to customize a piece of their clothing. I stalked their website leading up to the event and was planning on customizing these boyfriend jeans, which I still really need in my life, but when I got to the store I couldn’t keep my hands off the men’s black denim jacket. It had that perfect oversize, lived in feel that I have been searching for.
I chose to cut off the bottom of the jacket to allow for some fraying as well as selected certain areas to grind up for a more worn-in look. Then came the patches. Now, I think everyone has gone a little patch crazy since Alessandro Michele’s Gucci became the new designer staple but unlike Gucci, sometimes patchwork can just look cheesy. I wanted something that had a little rock n’ roll feel but that was still sophisticated, cue the flowers. If you follow me on instagram, you know flowers are my thing. I placed the flowers on the top back of the jacket leaving the rest patch free. I felt like this made the statement without being too overpowering and honestly, I couldn’t be happier with how it came out. It inspired me to go through the 5 bags of clothing I have sitting in my closet ready to send to Goodwill and to rethink how I can add some patches and reinvent pieces I am over with.
I think everyone can use some floral patches in their lives so I searched Etsy for some of my favorites to inspire you to get creative this weekend. Let the DIY-ing begin!
This rose reminds me of Beauty & the Beast and I mean that in the best way possible!! I think a single rose like this would look so pretty on a pocket or on the back collar!
This rose has such a pretty slight pink hue, would love this on a blue denim jacket!
Love that these come as a pair!
Love the teal color in these leaves- I think this floral patch would look awesome on super light washed boyfriend jeans!
For the girl that’s more into pink flowers than red! Another awesome pair.
