When it comes to fall colors, there’s one that is almost always in our homes, on our feet, and dominating the landscape. We’re talking about a neutral that goes with almost everything, and imparts an undeniable classic flair: cognac. The color is like its namesake; woodsy and warm with a hint of masculinity.
Cognac is the perfect shade of brown for leather accessories like bags and boots. A pair of cognac boots and skinny dark-wash jeans are a match made in heaven for fall.
Want to make your home feel cozy, rugged, and also somehow luxurious? Enter the cognac leather couch. This warm color makes your home inviting, especially when used on such a statement piece in the room.
While cognac may seem to take a backseat to other fall wedding colors, don’t be fooled! This beautiful brown makes its way into wedding decor through leather and wooden accents.
When it comes to dressing for fall and winter, there’s one color combination that will stand the test of time and trends. We’re talking about a pairing of neutrals that is so classic that it can make almost any outfit instantly chic and worthy of a street-style photo.

That’s how hot this color combo is.

This week we’re taking a cue from the nerdy-chic trend that tends to pop up around fall when school is in session! If you’ve ever had a boring sweater that needed a subtle upgrade, this DIY is for you! We’ve taken regular elbow patches that were already super-chic, and updated them with a fun geometric print. You can use this tutorial to create all different styles of elbow patches too! Try a floral stencil for something a little more feminine or paisley for a look that’s pretty and pretty!
What You’ll Need:
Suede Cowhide Elbow Patch
Needle and Thread
1. Turn your suede patches over so that side you want to show on the sweater is facing downward, and draw an oval circle by the edge of the patch to prevent excess cutting.
2. Stencil on the design with your white pencil, and make sure to not stencil in anything past the white oval circle you made before.
3. Carefully cut out the shapes you created with your knife.
4. Figure out where your elbows would be placed in your sweater. Sew on each patch in that elbow area.
When sitting in a college classroom, most people look to their classmates for fashion inspiration. You see a cute bag across the way, a nice pair of boots on your neighbor next to you, but rarely do you look at the person at the very front of the room.

We’re taking a cue from that academic style, and imparting it into some of our favorite fall fashions in the way of elbow patches! Elbow patches instantly add a little something to an otherwise typical sweater or cardigan.
