Embroidery continues to be one of the biggest trends this season. Similar to a print or graphic, the beautifully stitched design adds a playful touch to your look. From flowy dresses, charming tops, chic shoes, fun bags — you can wear embroidery in both subtle or standout ways. Get inspired and embrace the trend with the how to wear tips ahead.


Whether the details are a trim along your shoulders to an all-over design, embroidery really plays up your style. For a chic and casual day look, try a relaxed silhouette paired with slides. At night, fitted styles that are tailored and have a bit more structure feel dressier. Top it off with a sensible heel to balance the look. From boho-inspired styles and well-crafted florals, make any of the dresses ahead be your fun and festive go-to piece.


An embroidered top is a great investment. There’s usually a lot going on with the unique designs featured on each top, so it’s best to keep your outfit simple. Wear with your favorite jeans, a denim skirt, or even a muted pair of soft shorts.


Pair an embroidered skirt with solids for good measure. Try a fitted top tucked into your skirt or a crop top that showcases a hint of skin.


Pull off embroidery shoes by matching any of the colors back to your clothing. Since your shoes already have a lot of color, keep the rest of your look neutral. Try a white dress or solid pieces that match back to the embroidered hues.


An embroidered bag will elevate your look, giving it a pop of color. Throw on a crossbody bag or tote for an impactful weekend look or a clutch with your little black dress at night.
