Spring Embellishment Inspiration

1

If you’re going to embrace one trend this season, please let it be embellishments. Embellishments can add dimension and fun to any piece, and they are so hot for spring! You can wear them head to toe on a dress, or opt for an embellished accessory. A little embellishment can make a basic piece a total statement item!

Vogue Marni RTW Spring 2014

These beautiful dresses from Marni are perfect for spring! Florals are always a great embellishment because they can look so natural and add playfulness to your outfit. If you’re really into embellishments, take a look at that gorgeous clutch too!

Miu Miu Spring 2014 RTW

Miu Miu’s Spring 2014 line was all about embellishments! The sequins, pailletes, and strung beads added a lot of movement to the items.

Emilio Pucci Spring 2014

Pucci is no stranger to pattern, color or shape, so of course embellishments were a HUGE part of their Spring 2014 line. Intricately beaded dresses and jackets were central to their show.

This Christopher Kane sweatshirt is just about the best thing we’ve seen all year. Props for making botany cooler than ever!

Louis Vuitton

The looks at Louis Vuitton were embellished to the max! The fact that most of the embellishments are black keep the looks from being TOO loud.

Which look would you rock, and are you seeing embellishments on your fashion radar for spring?

DIY Inspiration: Sequins

Ever since we saw Gwyneth’s sequin pocket dress at the Met Gala, we’ve been inspired to use sequins in a chic and classy way. Clutches, pillows, bras – you can add sequins to basically anything to jazz it up. We have a ton of sequin trims in our store right now, and we can’t wait to start crafting!
