I love these Aeropostale patchwork jeans. They incorporate the patchwork trend in the simplest of ways, with patches on the knees. But I couldn't stop there- I had to add a chambray top to complete the look. These jeans are more "boyfriend" than I've ever worn, so I had to figure out the right way to cuff them. I used the advice here, here and here for some great ideas on how to cuff my jeans.
This fall, don't be afraid to mix similar shades of denim. When I've worn the "Canadian tuxedu" before, I've made sure that my denim washes were in stark contrast to one another. The patchwork trend allows you to mix and match just about any denim shades you have in your closet. If you're too scared to mix too many shades of denim at once, try out a patchwork button-up like the ones I added to the Shop the Trend section below. I really love the Madewell colorblocked popover.
I'd love to know which look was your favorite this week! Lace, military, leather, or denim? Let me know in the comments below :)
