Seeing more and more striped clothing flood the stores always signify the arrival of spring. From your daily office wear to Sunday brunch, strips can definitely perk up your mood as it does your wardrobe. This year, stripes have moved beyond the basic black and white striped t-shirt that we know and love, combining the classic pattern with more complex shapes, colours, details and silhouettes.
I know what you’re thinking. “Florals for spring? Groundbreaking.” Well hold on to your Miranda Priestly skepticism, because this spring we’re seeing florals pop up in a fresh way.
You can dive right into the trends head on with extreme versions of the trends or opt for a more denim with more subtle details inspired by the same thing. Whether its jeans covered from ankle to waist in colourful embroidery or with just a small embroidery accent by the pocket, just choose to rock whatever you feel the most confident in.
If the term embroidery still gives you flashbacks of grandmotherly blouses or old heavy curtains, you’ll be happy to hear that the trend has been given a fresh boost. Looking through my Instagram feed, it’s on the yes-list of every influencer and fashion blogger and has been seen all over the fall fashion runways. With a few simple tweaks here and there, modern embroidery has a fresh vibe that appeals to a younger crowd.
