As much as I love mixing patterns and prints together, sometimes I like having only one statement piece on and sometimes that’s really all you need! Embroidery is everywhere for Spring and Summer and I couldn’t happier about it. Something about it reminds me of growing up so it’s brings back a lot of great memories! I’d be lying if I said I loved seeing a great pair of embroidered shoes or jacket paired with another busy piece, because let’s be honest anything embroidered can stand on its own.
These embroidered shoes are a prized possession of mine. My favorite thing to pair them with is an LBD, or anything black on black. Why? They are the focal point of my look! If you add other busy prints, patterns or colors then you take away from all the embroidered beauty. I think it’s important to have one focal point in a look that ties it all together nicely. Don’t get me wrong, I love mixing and matching and getting a little crazy with my jewelry, but some pieces just truly deserve to shine! There are certain patterns, colors and textures that are certainly fun to play around with but like I said before you have to decide which ones those are and if they truly flow together creating a put together look.
Embroidery is beautiful and unique so I think keeping it simple and letting whatever embroidered piece you have on shine.
