The "patch trend" is everywhere right now, and why not? What we love most about the trend is the fact that there’s a certain element of nostalgia associated with it: World War II-era aviator jackets, 1960s hippie denim, and, of course, Girl Scout uniforms were all covered in patches. It's an excuse to bring back some of our childhood to our fashion statements.
We are seeing it on the runway, Instagram and of course Pinterest. Go ahead and customize your own jeans, jean jacket, skinnies or really whatever want. It's a total DIY trend - go ham and iron those bad boys all over a cropped, denim vest. You can't really go wrong! Add more flare, or don't. Up to you.
There's 'No Doubt' (sorry, had to) that Gwen Stefani is all about the patch trend:

Local company Stillwater Supply Patches + Pins has a darling selection to choose from. My FAV is the 'Monstera Leaf Patch' (there's a pic in the gallery).
The trend doesn't stop just on your clothing, a Tacoma company called Destiny City Threads is killin' it in the patch department. They hand-embroider wall art (Grandmas Rejoice) and it's AMAZING! (check out the gallery). I'm obsessed!
