August 21st, 2018 by Jennifer Beile 5 Patchwork Print Outfits to Inspire You To Try The Trend

With the release of fall collections, I’ve noticed that patchwork print is trending: the combination of prints on the same piece. I love that patchwork takes the work out of print mixing while adding a really fun element to your outfit. Fair warning: it carries the risk of looking dated, so a quick scour of Pinterest and some of my favorite influencer feeds was in order.

Take a look at 5 patchwork outfits that’ll inspire you for the upcoming fall season!


Update Your Denim
Update your denim collection with a pair of patchwork denim jeans or a skirt. Look for denim with contrasting colors and pair it with a simple tee and your favorite blazer for a classic look.


Dress It Up (Or Down!)
You’ll be seeing so many dress options with patchwork print this season. A silky maxi is perfect for date night, or add some sneakers and a sweater to a long sleeved midi patchwork dress!


Express Yourself in a Patchwork Jumpsuit
I love a good jumpsuit, and a patchwork jumpsuit like the one Dana is wearing gives me all the cozy fall feels, while still looking trendy.

Accessorize with Patchwork
