Update your daywear, workwear and evening wardrobe with some brand new embellishment
This is a Marie Claire Advertorial
No longer just for the party season, embellished pieces are now holding us enthralled for the summer too. Everything from understated embroidery to all-over sequins lit up the SS15 catwalks – and they’ll be doing the same for your wardrobe. As we head into the new season, watch as the trend goes into overdrive with off-duty denim, evening dresses and accessories all receiving an embellished makeover.
While it might seem a bit daunting to step out in bold sequins, studs or colourful appliqué at any time of the day, with a little know-how and the right styles, this trend will become effortless and you’ll soon be looking to embellished extras to up the ante on all of your wardrobe basics…
It’s an LBD, but not as we know it – and that’s exactly what the SS15 embellishment trend is all about. Shake-up your dress collection with this Sequin Numbered Dress from Sonia by Sonia Rykiel and make a real statement day or night. Yes, that’s right: This all-over shimmering sequin dress can work 9 – 5 – just add flats to keep it casual. High tops will give your look a youthful, on-trend edge.
This season, the trends are crossing over and there is a distinct love-in between the ‘70s, raw denim and embellished trends – and nothing showcases this crossover better than House of Holland’s Billy Denim Jacket. This casual number is the festival jacket you’ve been dreaming of, seeing you through the summer season in Bohemian style. Don’t save this jacket just for festivals though – you can tone down printed separates or a chic pencil skirt with this cropped cover-up as well.
For something a little subtler but just as beautiful, invest in this Aira Studded Clutch by McQ Alexander McQueen. Toughen up a feminine midi skirt at your next wedding, or give your LBD an SS15 update with this embellished bag.
