Go All In
If you're wearing patchwork, you're already committed to piling, like, 10 colors and patterns on at once. What's a few more? Pick two pieces with similar-sized patches and shades that complement each other.
Try Denim on Denim
Ease your way into the patchwork trend with blue-on-blue. Denim-centric line Ohlin/D has put together the perfect laid-back party look with this shoulder-baring crop top and matching patchwork jeans. Throw some metallic sandals and simple silver earrings in there for extra sparkle.
If a dress only has two patches, does it count as patchwork? Yes. Yes, it does. Daniel Silverstain's minimalist take on the look erases any quilt connotations. Silver piping on the pockets makes silver slides and matching jewelry a no-brainer.
Or, more specifically, go 1976 meets 2016. Tory Burch's shift dress pairs hand-stitched charm with a sleek silhouette, while teensy florals feel modern on Coach's chain-strap patchwork bag. Finish the whole thing off with flat-form espadrilles.
