Patchwork gives fashion a bold twist, and gives any look major swagger. I just adore the eclectic look of this trend. With such color, and sometimes fabric, versatility, patchwork gives an outfit more character.

This first feature is hot! I love the fact that both patchworks are black and white, making this easier to match. It’s a classic shirt that pairs well with bold colors and patterns. The patchwork will not overwhelm, and the floral contrasted with the polka dot is on point!

Next up, check out this sassy denim skirt. With various denim stains, this skirt is a patchwork of fun! I think this is a great A line miniskirt. The length of this number is appropriate, and its potential to be worn with a denim-collared shirt makes it all the more exciting for me. A denim skirt is never a waste of fashion because they are always in style. Fashion enthusiasts respect them and they are currently a big hit in fashion social media

As a word of caution, some people cannot wear this next dress. It’s a shame, but we all know that designers sometimes do not make dresses for every body type. If you are lean and tall, then you need to check out this next dress. It’s great when you find something that flatters you, and I promise that this dress will look amazing on the statuesque types. Although this dress can definitely overload the senses, it will be a slam-dunk when worn by the right person with the right heels.

Do you want to pull a Gwen Stefani and rock some spark plugs as shoes? Here is your opportunity to do so! Look bold and be bold in these platform pumps that scream for attention. However, beware of looking tacky. You shouldn’t wear them with every outfit. These pumps can look cheesy, so will need to tone them down with solid colors. Pair well and you can enjoy flaunting this patchwork of mesh, leopard, and array of colors.
