Patches will always be a great way to DIY anything. They can add a vintage ’70s flair to a pair of flare jeans, or add an archist punk layer to a ripped denim jacket or worn-in leather vest. With the right patch, you can recreate a piece of clothing you already own, or make a thrifted piece into a signature item. When searching for patches, check your local secondhand stores, museum gift shops, eBay, Etsy, or even your childhood junk drawer. Don’t fret if they aren’t iron-on—you can always utilize those sewing skills you learned in 7th grade home ec. Click through the gallery to see our 10 favorite patches of the moment.
