The Art of Embroidery
The art of embroidery has been around for centuries stretching all over the globe. One of the earliest developments of embroidery can be traced back to China during the Zhou Dynasty (1045 BC). To them, embroidery presented a sign of power, wealth, and rank. The Chinese used embroidery patterns on attire that showcased what each symbol meant. For instance, the Phoenix was meant to bless the wearer with good fortune and opportunity, whereas the peach represented longevity.
Spring is right around the bend and its declaring itself in blazingly embroidered colors. All seen down the runway, embroidery has been slapped onto bags and placed on denim jackets. Upon slender jeans, motifs mark their way down the legs and amplify the shoulders of cotton shirts. Recognized for its beauty; it can cast an extra flair to understated garments. Embroidery can without a doubt breathe some life into your ensemble. For something simple choose a poplin shirt with floral stitching across the top. Wear it unbuttoned over a plain white tee and pair it with skinnies.
On days where the cold still nips at your heels, combine an oversized sweater and jeans with floral patterns. Don’t be afraid to play with texture! Adding texture can give your look a more individualized style. Add a faded denim jacket with embroidered flowers and butterflies upon a soft dainty white cotton dress. Finish the look with intricate black ankle boots. For something a little more flirtatious reach for a tailored black silk shirt and pair I off with an A-line velvet mini with a floral embellished front.
