October 22nd, 2019 by Jennifer Beile A Modern Take on the Patchwork Trend & How to Wear It

This fall, the patchwork trend has gone through a modern update and we are no longer seeing the traditional patchwork pieces inspired by classic quilting, literally as it sounds: different pieces, or patches, of patterns and materials are sewn into one garment. Recently, this trend has undergone a modern update that results in sleek, chic pieces that are brought together with a more minimalistic approach, almost as if it’s only two separate items instead of multiple without any direction. As somewhat of a mix between colorblocking and print mixing, take a look at the modern update on the patchwork trend to inspire you this fall season.

Two-Tone Pieces
