patched up

Lately, I've been noticing an increase in a detail that those of us in the industry refer to as "trim" (basically any detail on a garment that isn't the main body fabric ie. buttons, thread, etc.).  In this case, it's the addition of suede or leather elbow patches on cardigans and sweaters and it seems to be everywhere for fall. I love that it is an unexpected detail that makes your outfit just that little bit more updated and interesting.  I love this look with a casual pair of jeans, riding boots, and big cozy scarf to match.
