STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Patchwork is the New Artwork

Whether you were apart of the famous Girl Scouts organization growing up or not, you probably can recall the classic “Girl Scouts vest.” Covered in an honorable amount of well-deserved patches, this vest symbolized awesomeness. The patches instilled confidence into these many girls.  But just because you grew out of the child-size vest, does not mean you cannot switch it out for a new and improved one!

What makes this fabulous trend so unique is that the vest or jacket you make is one-of-a-kind! The patches you chose should be symbolic of your passions and interest. Thankfully, patches are hitting mainstream brands and stores all over the country; ranging from rock bands to avocados. This Fashionista demonstrates how to execute the street style denim vest. She reminds us to never be afraid of denim on denim by wearing a distressed white denim skirt.  The Fashionista also brings elements of grunge to her look by adding a ‘90s tattoo choker and Converse.

The patches on the vest stand out, making the Fashionista’s look a complete attention grabber. Let’s face it, who doesn’t love a little attention here and there! The patched denim vest can be the easiest way to spice up a plain outfit during the day, or it can be the final touch to a going out outfit.

The DIY denim vest is your personal art work. You are not only limited to patches; add some flavor with chains and stones! The vest or jacket is your canvas, go and make some art!
