Style Trend: Patchwork Jeans

A surprise hit this year has been my skinny patchwork jeans that I bought in February from Karen Millen. They weren't a planned purchase but I have worn them so much - usually with a plain white tee and skate shoes or with a chambray shirt for the double denim look. They have had a bit of a rest over the summer months, but now that it's jeans weather again, I couldn't wait to dig them out, especially as they are still a big trend this autumn.

I suggest styling them with white sneakers and a structured blazer and t-shirt to give the look a more polished edge. A pair of brogues or heels will also work for a smarter look. Here are some of my favourites from the high street:

First up, the ones I bought from Karen Millen are still in stock:

Patchwork Skinny Jean £99

Karen Millen also has a boyfriend version:

Patchwork Boyfriend Jean £99

The ultimate skinny pair if I could afford them:

MiH Skinny Jeans With Patch Detail £205

 I love the worn look of this pair from Morgan:

Morgan Patched and Worn Skinny Jeans £59

Skinny patchwork jeans at GAP:

1969 patchwork always skinny jeans £49.95

And my favourite pair - classic skinnies from Marks & Spencer:

Chevron Knee Patch Denim Skinny Jean £35

And this was me in my patchwork skinnies earlier this week, I wouldn't normally wear flip flops with them, but had just painted my toenails blue:

  2. The jeans look really cool on you Abbi! I have yet to dip my toe in this trend but I did see some great ones in Gap outlet this morning so I may well join you in the purchase of some patchwork jeans!! xx

  3. The jeans look great on you Abbi! I tried some patchwork ones on in Gap earlier in the year & they really didn't suit me, although I've seen some in H&M that I might go back & try. x

    1. Yes, try them, I've seen the H&M ones, they are fab, but couldn't find them online.

  6. It's not a jean style I'm into - I have no rhyme or reason for my thinking!!!!

    1. It's definitely one that you either love or hate - no inbetween!
