Trend Spotting: Patchwork Pants You Need This Year

Allow me to start this post with a question: Will you wear patchwork pants? I am amazed at what the fashion industry flings at us from time to time. From horrible harem pants to painfully uncomfortable heelless shoes, there seems to be no end to the ingenuity and brazenness of this industry.

These days, I’ve been noticing a growing trend — patchwork pants. Back in the ’90s, pants adorned with appliqués were hugely popular. So were the heavily colorful patchwork pants that look like someone took their grandma’s bedding set and turned it into pants.

While I do have my reservations about patchwork pants (you can only dress them in so many ways before they start looking dowdy), there are new styles and designs that make them look chic and fashion forward.

I’m talking about the following pants that will make you stand out from the crowd:

1. 3.1 Phillip Lim Bleached Blue Chain Patchwork Jeans, $550

5. Current/Elliott Skinny Boy Jeans, $348

If these are the patchwork pants that are available to satisfy our fashion hunger, I think I can be converted into a fan.

The jeans would be great for basic tees and tank tops and would be perfect for the spring and summer seasons. The dressier patchwork pants can be paired with long-sleeved button-down tops and dressed up with pumps.

You can even pair them up with solid-colored peplum tops to inject a girly panache to your ensemble.

So, what do you guys think? Is this trend something you’d like to plunge into?
