There is no way to escape the fact that embroidery is one of the hottest fashion trends this spring. What better what to counteract the current gloom than by injecting a touch of this gorgeous embellishment into your wardrobe?
The inspiration for the trend has been rightly attributed to Alessandro Michele at Gucci who sent models down the catwalk in 2016 in fabulous, rose-embroidered leather jackets, slippers and retro, appliqued denim. Other designers followed suit notably Stella McCartney with her exquisite, floral embroidered black coat as worn by Anna Wintour.
The good news is that it couldn’t be easier to incorporate embroidery into your existing wardrobe. You don’t have to go for the full boho look – just one embroidered item can transform an outfit adding a touch of effortless glamour at an affordable price. From clutches, to jeans this trend is uber-versatile and can be worn day or night.
It can be dressed up or down, whether it be retro, embroidered jeans for a laid-back library day or ripped black jeans with a pair of embroidered boots or Topshop’s Gucci-inspired slippers for the evening… For those who prefer a more individual take there are some fabulous vintage clutches and more on Etsy and Depop. It is a must-have staple in every student’s wardrobe this spring.
