Patchwork jeans are not new, and although they have yet to go mainstream, they're still considered a trendy item.

It's a creative interpretation of the patchwork trend and yet guarded in that it doesn't overdo it. Even more important -it's wearable.

So as far as my shopping inspo goals for the day, I'd say check, check and check.
