Denim is the folk version of the embroidery trend.
On leather bombers and boots the embroidery look morphs to be glamorous and edgy. Work these items into your existing wardrobe as the feature piece and you can’t go wrong. Embroidery is both feminine and fashionable. A tank or shell top with embroidery touches looks superb at the office. Throw a classic sharp-shouldered blazer on and corporate chic is your look du jour.
Embroidery can be overwhelming so keep the rest of your items neutral and pattern free so as not overshadow the embroidery, which should be the key focus if you want to achieve balance in your outfit. Pick a colour thread from your embroidered item and highlight it with a similar shade in shoes, a scarf or a hat. Burgundy tones in nicely with reds and pinks and all shades of blue pop when teamed with denim. Let your embroidery do the talking in embroidered shoes and boots. This fashion forward footwear looks great teamed with a midi cut as it allows the shoes to take center stage.
