Are Patches In For Summer 2016? Selena Gomez Thinks So — PHOTOS
Selena Gomez has been killing the red carpet fashion scene, and her off-duty style is following suit. In a recent picture posted to her Instagram on May 14, Gomez could be seen sporting yet again an amazing outfit. Selena Gomez’s patched shorts that she wore while greeting her fans after her Vancouver, Canada concert were both on-trend and crazy cute.
While it’s no surprise that Gomez is at the cusp of yet another major trend, I was surprised to see that the super cute patched shorts she was wearing said "Gomez" on them. Although I am not quite sure, the customization of these shorts makes me think that they might just be another item from her super stylish tour merch. Regardless, these cute and one-of-a-kind cut-offs are a great way to embrace the patch trend of summer 2016.
Whether paired with a baggy tee like Gomez or thrown over a sexy bodysuit, there is no question that patched cut-offs, and patched clothing altogether, are going to be a huge trend come the hot months ahead. So if you are looking to get Gomez’s style or are just a fan of the '90s patch trend in general, I’ve compiled some of the best patched pieces below for your shopping pleasure.
