Intricate fusion of elegance and class

From traditional to on trend, embroidery is making a comeback; it’s all in the details.

Stitchin’ is in! One of the oldest and the most classic methods of decorating a basic piece of fabric with sequins, beads, or any other fabric – embroidery – is now ruling the world of fashion!

It’s no secret that fashion repeats itself. While some fashion trends would be better left in the past there are times when a forgotten oldie is just what’s needed. And right now we can consider ourselves lucky because embroidery is the trend gradually returning in the limelight. What’s more, it seems it won’t be going away anytime soon!

Even if fashion does repeat itself, each cycle highlights something different in a style, putting it in a new context and exposing new characteristics. So what’s happening with embroidery in this year’s fashion cycle?

Well, this year, top fashion houses brought back embroidery as a trend – completely revamped and never seen before. Designers have incorporated embroidery with blooming colours, floral patches, sequins, beads and even mirror work. You will also find a number of beautifully embellished and hand embroidered laces out there.

An embroidered kurta is a staple in every desi woman’s wardrobe but this year, even the trousers are given delicate detailing of embroidery, adding that oomph factor to your outfit.

An embroidered detail, no matter how small, adds that extra little twist to an otherwise simple outfit. And the best part? This trend perfectly pairs with summer’s breezy, colourful feel.

Embroidered detailing gives any outfit a boost of effortless, whimsical flair. Whether the stitching is floral or geometric, this finishing touch adds a tasteful amount of bohemian-chic to warm-weather looks. 

Embroidery is such a versatile trend. It is not just limited to your ethnic dresses but you can also find embroidery work on bags, jeans, jackets, and even shoes. From bold to subtle minimal details, there are many ways you can wear this trend. The key to make a statement out of what you’re wearing is by balancing out the embroidered elements in your look. Give your classic plain white kurta a fun, flirty and feminine twist by opting for embroidered jeans or ditch the regular stiletto for embroidered heels – the options are plenty.
