Top 6 @ 6: Badge of Honour

Badges, pins, and patches are the it-trend for 2016.Flex those DIY skills.

Straight out of the 70's, patches, pins and badges have had a slow but steady revival in fashion. Initially seen on the runway circa fall 2014, the trend is still going strong in 2016, as seen in Gucci's hotly-anticipated Resort collection. Whether splayed out at random or meticulously arranged, these accessories add personality to treasured staples. While these patches are best found by digging through bins at flea markets, there are also options for the less thrifty among us. Buy a badged piece or DIY your own, because quite frankly, what's better than personalization?

I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
