Glitzy embellishments aren’t just for New Year’s bashes anymore - they are one of many rising trends on the runways for the Spring and Summer.
Eccentric embellishments are no longer a world reserved for tacky novelty sweaters. Extravagant detailing has reached a whole new level on the catwalks for some time, and I think we can expect to see this trend trickle down to the masses for the Spring and Summer this year.
What is so great about having embellishments in an outfit? In some ways, complex detailing can act as a statement accessory in and of itself. As you can see by Reem Acra’s Spring and Summer 2016 collection, your eyes are immediately held captive by the intense needlework of the dresses.
The overall silhouette is the focal point of the model, which may explain why the accessories were kept simple. Dolce & Gabbana’s inclusion of embellishments has a more sultry but whimsical twist, one that you can take to your next resort trip.
However, including appliques and decorative embroidery doesn’t always have to end up in excess. In Monique Lhullier’s collection, a more minimalistic approach is taken. The pieces themselves are in a classic shape, but is given a special twist with floral appliques in splashes of color that reflect the moods of spring and summer. Pat Bo’s collection is also similar in its minimalist approach, but tends to scatter colors more evenly than in Monique’s collection.
Wether you teeter on the edge of excess, or prefer something more understated and quiet, embellishments are a great way to expressive yourself by experimenting more with your next look. Turn heads at your next celebration and make traffic stop the next time you’re out shopping with friends. Here are some personal picks right here from Yurnit that you can start including today.
