Style Tip: How to Wear Embroidery

Last holiday season, we checked out the embroidery lab at Gucci 5th Ave, and ever since we’ve been obsessed with embroidery details on just about anything—a pair of jeans, a bomber jacket, a dress—you name it!

A beautifully crafted piece of embroidery will make any garment pop and it’s the perfect way to infuse a little whimsy into your style. Embroidery is also an easy way for minimalist dressers to add an interesting detail to a simple outfit. Throw on an embroidered bomber over a monochromatic outfit or carry an embellished handbag to make your tonal separates pop. Since it can be easy to go overboard with this whimsical trend, the key is to keep it to one embroidered piece per look. Pro tip: Match part of your look to a color featured in the embroidery—for example, if the color red is prominent in the embroidery, wear red shoes or a red top but make sure to keep the rest of the look neutral.
