I’m all about the floral embroidery right now – and that’s BIG coming from me (I don’t think I’ve ever been shy about my love for black). From jeans to skirts to suede booties – embroidery has sprung up everywhere! It’s a great way to add a little somethin’ somethin’ to a simple denim and boots combo and elevates even the most coziest of sweatshirts to high-fashion heights. In general, stick to one embroidered piece per outfit. That however, doesn’t mean your other pieces need to be basic. Pair embroidery with suede, leather, faux fur…or add a pop of colour by adding something in a colour pulled out of the embroidery itself. For example, pair a denim skirt embroidered with pink and red flowers with a leather jacket and a pink bag.
Still not 100% sure how to wear this trend? See how our ‘Girl in Focus’ Aly Armstrong styles her embroidered pieces.
