Style Advisor: Embroidery and Embellishments

Folkloric and romantic, with something of a rebellious, DIY attitude about them, embroidered and embellished pieces will inject your look with immediate and ultra-pretty impact. Even in their edgier incarnations, like Gucci’s snake embroidered jeans, there is something whimsical about the style. A statement embroidered jacket or pair of embellished shoes is an instant wardrobe game-changer – thrown on with a pared-back outfit, they’ll elevate it to the giddy heights of stylishness with minimal effort. We’ll definitely be investing this spring.

FRILLS AND SPILLS

Balance out an embellished and frilled upper half by teaming a rock ‘n’ roll-inspired, studded biker jacket and super-pretty blouse. The leather will counter the saccharine sweetness of this romantic Gucci pussy-bow top. Team with pared-back denims and metallic shoes.

INCOGNITO APPLIQUÉ

Saint Laurent’s camouflage jacket has been seen on every influential fashion editor from London to New York. The embroidered appliqué patch is playfully luxe, with a thigh-skimming, form-fitting silhouette. Wear with Gucci’s snake patch jeans for a look that is just, sew cool.

SEW COLOURFUL

Embroidery and embellishments break up primary block colours, meaning that you get all of their vibrant effect without looking like you just moved up to the junior’s. Wear a black, subtly embroidered mini with leg-elongating, wrap-around sandals and Gucci’s bee-emblazoned sweat. We’re blind in love with this look.

SPRING STITCHES

Artfully stitched with springtime florals, we’re more than happy to double dose on Gucci’s decorated SS17 pieces. Team the stone denim jacket with a form-fitting dress. Finish with studded Valentino’s and the sky-blue Gucci Sylvie. Twice as nice.
