ONLINE EXCLUSIVE: Trend Alert – Embroidery

Embroidery has been all over the high street for a while, but it’s luxury brands like Gucci which have catapulted the trend to the forefront of spring style. A perfect way to add colour to your wardrobe, embroidered pieces are fitting for the transition into spring and summer, and are an essential piece to effortlessly add a feminine touch to your style. The high street currently has many affordable pieces on offer, with the selection only growing as the weather gets even warmer. Here’s a selection of the best at the minute…


Everyone went crazy for the loafers that Gucci released with intricate floral embroidery, but many places have emulated their design for a fraction of the price. These ones from River Island are incredibly similar, and they would be perfect for Spring as they are so easy to slip on and off.

Whilst the majority of embroidery at the moment has floral patterns on, pin badges are also becoming increasingly popular. These jeans from ASOS are great if you’re not into florals.
