Embroidery is one of the charming trends that hit the streets and the magazine spreads alike. There’s a handful of pretty pieces that you could pick from high-street chains – but how to wear embroidery like a pro? We’re taking a peek at how fashion bloggers do it.
The trend has been around for a while – but maybe it’s the time to snatch that Zara skirt you’ve been window-shopping for since June? If you’ve brought a luscious embroidered item home, we’ll show you how a couple of fashion bloggers wore it – and we’ll pick some of our fave items, too!
It’s not surprising that the first thought of embroidery will make you think of a boho look – and we found a fantastic embroidered Zara dress paired with a black hat and Balenciaga boots on Rosanna’s blog. Wondering how to dress it up for winter? Pick a pair of tights and longer black boots to make the outfit, and you’re set!
The rock’n’roll edit
Are you more Joan Jett than Janis Joplin? The embroidery can be either, and none of them would reject its feminine appeal when it appears on the right piece. Pick an embroidered leather jacket to start with, then pair it with a plain T-shirt, trusty jeans and nude heels. Then, a pair of aviator sunglasses and a black bag with a gold detail will let the core piece of the outfit shine. We loved how the leather jacket was styled by Christine on HelloFashionBlog:
You definitely can’t be overdressed, but underdressing should not be in your dictionary either when you pair it with “casual”. Brittany from Thrifts and Threads pairs a beautiful embroidered jumper with a pair of bell bottom jeans – that’s how a Seventies-inspired look will keep you warm in the winter.
We’re stepping away from the previous decade inspirations to bring back some lustrous chic from RedReticule. A striped shirt with embroidered detail paired with leather trousers and an animal print cap-toe shoes feel comfortable and look super classy. Talk business (casual), baby.
Many people are scared of denim-on-denim combinations, but Michele, a Swiss blogger, shows us how to do it right. Focus on the trousers, everyone! She pairs her washed-out denim shirt with embroidered jeans and picks a handful of accessories that highlight her modern look. She wins at casual, too – white trainers and oversized jacket complete this fantastic, laid-back outfit.
We’ve also picked a handful of our favourite items on sales – check them out below:
