In my last post Lets Patch things up- part 1, I wrote about the latest trend of badges, patches, brooches and pins and how to style your clothing using this trend. This post is on styling accessories and shoes using badges, patches, brooches and pins.
Back when I was in school we use to put badges on our backpack for the cool kids effect. Back then there were not many choices when it came to badges and patches. Smiley faces in round shape were easily available. Later came the badges with our favourite superhero emblems and TV stars (I remember owning a few Hannha Montana badges) but the shape was still round.
Now with the wide variety of designs and shapes being available, decorating your backpack is super easy. Big brands are embracing the patch trend and decorating their purses, totes, pouches, slings and clutches too.
Brands like Karl Lagerfeld and Gucci have also been using patches and badges lately to stay on trend and make their bags unique.
2. Caps/ Beanies/Hats:-
80s hair and head accessories have had a major fashion influence. Bikers and sports fan have always been seen rocking patches on their caps. But now its not just limited to bikers and sports fans or caps.
Putting 2 or 3 pins on a beanie is a great way to style this up. You can also sew on a few patches on your favorite hat to match your outfit or location.
Patches can be put on any footwear – from boots to bellies and from heels to flats.
DIY your old pair of loafers or sneakers by sewing on some fun patches. Your boots can be given a whole new look by loading them with pins. For example, you can put the GAME OVER patch on your shoes for a great effect.
So, I hope this post helps you embrace and own this trend.
