Autumn Trend: Elbow Patches

Tuesday, September 20, 2011

Lovelies, how do you feel about elbow patches? Personally, I find them utterly irresistible and essential during the chilly weather. The good news is that the trend is stronger than ever and ready to rumble this season. I can't wait to wear my new Zara cardi with adorable elbow patches. Will you be wearing them this autumn? xo

P.S: I also got this one in grey for Balazs. It's a big trend for boys as well:).
P.P.S: do it yourself.

I love sweaters with elbow patches and the one you got from zara is super cute. Need to take a trip to zara today. Happy Tuesday.

Love, Amy

LIKE. Alot! I have seen several o.k. elbow patch sweaters in stores. Still looking for a good one, like the ones in these pictures.

Is this a new "trend?" - I know elbow patches from riding. The jumpers above look warm, cosy and comfortable, though.

Sara, zara has some cute pieces and Hetterson has a few adorable sweaters with stripes and elbow patches too.

I love this one: http://www.hetterson.com/product/salt-sweater

i loooove elbow patches. i have an old j.crew sweater with them right when the trend gained a foothold several years ago. i'd love to add some to a few of sebastian's things.

Tara @ Haute Lunch said...

I love elbow patches! I definitely need to get a cardigan and/or a jacket with these!

Sara Szatmary said...

Oooo I love this idea. In fact, I was just wondering to myself how I can liven up some of my old pieces. Sewing on some elbow patches may be just the thing!

Steph said...

I need to find some that are me and then I'd definitely give it a shot.

Christianna said...

I'll be sporting some this fall for sure!

Diana Mieczan said...

Cara, I want that outfit as well. It looks so comfy:)

Diana Mieczan said...

Thanks, Marissa and Sara, I am planning to update a few of my old sweaters with elbow patches as well.

Stephanie said...

Ooh, I love these! I've been at a loss for what new stuff to buy for fall, but something with elbow patches is officially on the list.

In fact, I'm kind of tempted to get a blazer with elbow patches and steal my husband's sonic screwdriver and one of his bow ties for Halloween this year. (The real irony here is that, despite my own extreme levels of nerdiness, I used to make fun of my husband for watching Doctor Who, but then I got sucked in too!)

Amber Blue Bird said...

nothing wrong with a few patches :)

Diana Mieczan said...

Oh my goodness, I love Doctor Who, Stephanie and you totally should steal your husband's sonic screwdriver and get a blazer with elbow patches for Halloween. That will be brilliant!
