How to Rock Embroidered Elegance

The new kid on the block in terms of winter classic trends. Embroidered pieces popped up on the catwalk with great collections like Alexander McQueen’s AW16/17 and have since exploded all over high street and celebrate circuit. Whether its dainty flowers and vines or gold and silver detailing embroidered pieces scream vintage chic and make any outfit look stylish and classic.
With so much great runway inspiration this year I couldn’t passed up the chance to show my favourite items from the High Street, and help you plan some killer outfits in them.

The best thing about embroidered style is that it’s so simple and easy to mix with other fabrics and trends to create amazing outfits this season. These gorgeous shorts from Top Shop are some of my absolute faves paired with a leather jacket and lace shirt, so sophisticated and glamorous. Whether you’re rocking out a new weekday look or getting ready for the big Christmas do, choosing a combo of velvet, leather or lace with an embroidered piece is a sure fire way to look on point the festive season. Nothing breaks up the black better then a splash of fine detailing.

It’s such a simple and easy look to pull off you just can’t go wrong. To play it safe you can pair it up with a black or red, or if your feeling braver try mixing your fabrics and colours based on the colours in the detailing.

However you decide to work the embroidered look, it’s safe to say it’ll be sharp and classy. The fine stitch work is perfect to turn any casual day outfit into something special at night, which can really help if you’re going for Christmas drinks after work.
