The trend I can’t get enough of right now

Embroidered shirt and biker jacket

I’ve developed quite a fashion fixation recently. Based on the image above you would be forgiven for assuming that it was looking awkward in photos, but I’m afraid that’s not a mere trend for me, that’s something I will do in every photo for the rest of my life and it’s mighty unfortunate.

Anyway, I digress – it’s embroidery. Floral embroidery. Pastel embroidery. Delicate embroidery. Bold embroidery. Almost any form will do. I love that it can be incorporated into so many styles and items of clothing, and the way it can be used to add pattern, colour and texture to an outfit.

I know, I know. We’ve been on the embroidery wagon a while now. It’s kiiiind of old news Soph. But I still can’t get enough, and with more and more pieces popping up for summer as well as all the things I’ve had my eye on for the last couple of months, I just want to throw all the money at the high street and have it all.

I’ve managed to be pretty good, so far, and only nabbed myself two embroidered items*; a white shirt and a biker. I wore them both together, which may be breaking the rules somewhat because I don’t know if you’re allowed to wear embroidered items together and I’m inclined to believe that would probably be considered a big no-no. In fact, I imagine there are blog posts currently in existence titled something like ‘How to style the embroidery trend’ and point two is probably ‘CHOOSE ONE PIECE.’ Still, I’ve only gone and done it anyway, and because the jacket covers the shirt and the colours on the embroidery are similar for both, I don’t mind it at all. In fact, I think I like it, so guess who just became a rule breaker?!

I’ve got my eye on a LOT of other pieces though, so thought I would put a little wishlist together. To be honest this is just the tip of the iceberg, but here’s some of the embroidered treats I’m considering adding to my wardrobe at the moment:

Embroidery wishlist

1.  Ego Cheska embroidered mules, £24.99 | 2. Topshop embroidered mom jeans, £59.00  | 3. Zara embroidered mini dress, £39.99 | 4. New Look embroidered peplum hem top, £24.99 | 5.  Boohoo Frankie embroidered belt, £12.00 | 6. New Look embroidered shirt, £22.99 | 7. Next embroidered long sleeved top, £40.00 | 8. Zara embroidered city bag, £29.99 | 9. Next black embroidered dress, £50.00  | 10. M&S red heeled mules, £35.00

I can’t afford to buy all of these if I want to eat for the next year, but I’m definitely hoping to treat myself to a couple of them when I decide which I’d get the most wear out of.

Are you loving the embroidery trend as much as me? Which items on my wishlist should I go for?

*p.s. I have a confession to make. Since writing this I have in fact bought something else, OOPS. It’s this little New Look bag, and although it’s not exactly what I was after, at just £7 in the sale I thought I would be silly not to snap it up while I decide which of the pricier items to go for. Told you I was addicted.
