While the words ‘patchwork denim’ might make you shudder (blame Britney and Justin's infamous Canadian tuxedo), you might be surprised how sweet a pair of patchwork jeans can look. The style has been in and out of fashion since the ’60s, but something about its 'mend and make do' ethos feels particularly relevant in today's world. The premise is simple: pull out your most scuffed, torn-up jeans and cover up the holes with an array of colourful fabric scraps. With a little care (and these helpful pointers from Honestly WTF’s tutorial), you’ll have turned old duds into a fresh new look.
