Tips for wearing embroidery

  • Let it be your focal point. With the unique detail that embroidery adds to any outfit, it’s best to keep the rest of your outfit pretty simple. We love pairing embroidery details with a basic sweater and booties or a plain pair of denim.
  • Keep it in your comfort zone. Given that embroidery tends to draw the eye to that area you’ll want to be sure that the pieces you’re picking have that detail in an area you don’t mind being the center of attention.  A trend so good you’ll want to flaunt it!
  • Sometimes less is more. If you aren’t completely on board with this trend yet, but really Want to try it out, try opting for tone on tone stitching or a piece with very small embroidered details to dip your toes into this trend.
