Yes, it is possible to wear patchwork jeans this fall without looking like a Coachella (or the original Woodstock) leftover or, worse,  just like you're trying too hard. This season's update on the '70s-reminiscent trend comes in all fits, lengths, colors, and budgets so you can find the pair that best suits your preferences, credit limit and body shape. The medley of denim and other textures is a super fun and ridiculously easy way to give your t-shirt/sweatshirt/sweater/moto/etc. and spartan jeans outfit a vintage-inspired, but totally now update. 

Hey, Cara Delevingne likes them. Plus, designers flexed their creative muscles in updating the actual patching concepts — from slouchy boyfriend jeans with contrasting triangle panels to Rag & Bone's distressed skinnies with an under-layer of buffalo checks, to Stella McCartney and Marc by Marc Jacobs's cartoon-like color play. So click through the slideshow below for 12 fun updated patchwork jeans.
