The patch trend is raging everywhere and I think it’s time I had my take on it! At first I was not a big fan of those little drawings on teenagers’ pieces (no offense I just bought a denim jacket covered with patches) but after all I think it can suit also to a more adult type of outfit if it adds a little structure and anecdotic fun.
So here we are with an elegant look spiced up by that patched bag in the middle of a simple and clean combination. The presence of crazy patches is tempered by the ladylike shape of the bag creating an interesting contrast which is very important to me when I compose my outfits everyday. My hair style could have matched with the playful side of the look but those African braids are now having a fashion moment and are more synonymous with sharp femininity than girliness. My Mom used to braid my hair that way when I was a child and hated it back in time, now, I’m struggling for 20 minutes every time I want to achieve that hair style by myself! (Sorry Mom for all those mornings, saddened by my lack of avant-garde lol). This outfit can easily be dressed down by wearing sneakers instead of heels and a skater beanie, I’ll never stop saying that accessories are everything! Bisous.
