Resourcefulness is always a good look.
And, as it turns out, a make-do M.O. makes one heck of a style statement. Whether it’s by design (literally) or the product of after-market individualization, fashion is feeling a strong appreciation for aesthetic darning – patches, prominent stitching, and conspicuous mending – necessary or not. The trend is particularly prevalent on denim, the ultimate canvas for personalization, whether it’s jazzing up your jeans or adding some reinforcement to the worn elbows of your favorite jacket.
