All Patched Up: The Elbow Patch Trend

Tommy Hilfiger

Lately, a lot of inspiration and adaptations from menswear have been increasingly influential in women’s wear. It’s no surprise why this is so. As fashion and trends change, the taste of women's style changes too and this season menswear inspired pieces are everywhere. Loafers, over-sized blazers, and tapered baggy pants are some of the favorites, but sometimes, the smallest detail makes the biggest difference. Ladies, I'm talking about…elbow patch details!

Seen on sweaters, blazers, and thick woven shirts; elbow patches are great details that give any top more character. Most of us have seen them on our grandfather’s sweaters, which is totally cool because the older, the better (remember, anything vintage is priceless)! As menswear makes a segway into women’s wear, elbow patches are best seen on thick oversized sweaters and boyfriend blazers. Elbow patches come in an assortment of fabrics, patterns, and colors, such as leather, plaid, checkered, black, brown and corduroy.

Check out my favorite selection of these classy and timeless pieces below, which showcase a sweet mix of masculine and chic!
