How do you get plain long sleeved tops and sweaters to stand out? Get them with elbow patches or make them yourself.
Elbow patch sweaters have been making their presence known for quite a while. Celebrities like Harry Styles, Reese Witherspoon and Ashley Greene have been spotted wearing the trend years back.
This may sound weird, but I await in anticipation for Taylor Swift to step out in her typically retro getup that features elbow patches.
Weirdness aside, people who appreciate the trend may like the vintage-inspired appeal of having elbow patches on their tops and sweaters. Plus, it’s nice to have our elbows finally take center spotlight once in blue moon, right?
While oval-shaped patches are the norm, many quirky patterns like hearts, stars and even skulls are much loved as well.
If you have plain sweaters and long sleeved tops sitting somewhere in the dusty corner of your closet, do yourself a great favor and bring them all out for a fun fashion project.
Transform your old boring tops with the unexpected presence of elbow patches in the shapes that you like.
