Fashion Jobs – Trend Alert: Summer Embroidery

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canada

IMG_673

We have seen spring and summer welcome new and exciting trends, but just can’t help but lust over embroidery and all the intricate detail it’s currently bringing to the fashion world. From Dolce & Gabbana to our grandmother’s closet, embroidery has made its way through fashion history and is having a major style moment this year. It really brings an outfit to life and is a fun and flirty way to show off your personality with the wide range of prints and colours to choose from. From denim to dresses here are our top embroidered picks for the season. 

1. Jeans

Jeans

Trying out embroidery on denim is a relaxed way to experiment with this trend. You can really have fun with the denim patch embroidery design and can be a fun DIY project to revamp some old jeans or stick to a feminine floral-like design. Either way, your legs will be getting all the attention this season.

2. Accessories

Accessories 

Embroidery can be challenging to wear for work, especially in a professional setting. A chic way to display some colour and detail is through accessories. A bag or a subtle pattern on a shoe will be sure to turn heads and add some flare to your nine to five attire, as well as for after work gatherings.

3.Jacket

Jackets

I love an embroidered statement jacket, especially in leather. It’s a closet essential and will be a great investment piece to carry on into the fall season. Choosing a complementary colour to your wardrobe is key to an embroidered jacket, as you want it to be able to go with any outfit pairing.

4. Top

Tops

If you’re looking to test-drive this trend before you go off buying a few pieces, go with a blouse or shirt that displays simple and clean motives. A crisp white blouse with cuff or body detail is elegant yet understated, as well as a semi-sheer organza top for a romantic look.

5.Embroidered dress

Dresses

An embroidered dress holds immense power and commands attention when worn. There is a very regal and whimsical element when delicate embroidery is placed on a dress, and it has been seen all over the runways. From a short cocktail dress to a silk slip, the pops of colourful embroidery is playful and sophisticated.
