We’re currently seeing a trend for all things embellished and there are plenty of ways to add embellishments to your wardrobe this season. Embellishments right now range from studs and jewels to sequins and 3D fabrics. They can be found on anything from luxury designer accessories to cheap chain store buys. Whatever your budget, these are just a few ideas for ways to add embellishments to your spring wardrobes.
1. Embellished Purses
One of the easiest and quickest ways to add embellishments to your outfit is with accessories. Right now, the embellished purse is a must-have. They’re great for glamming up a daytime outfit but are also a fun addition to your favourite party outfit. There are plenty of ready-made options available in stores, at various price points, or you could make your own version using some gems and craft glue.
2. Embellished Daytime Dresses
Embrace a quirkier look with an embellished dress this spring. Instead of over the top cocktail-style dresses, look for daytime dresses that feature playful floral embellishments or crystal clusters. You don’t have to spend a fortune on a Stella McCartney number either, with stores like Topshop and ASOS offering up plenty of budget-friendly takes on the trend.
3. Embellished Pants
Really make a statement in a pair of embellished pants. Crystal embellished pants can be a cool way to shake up your eveningwear look. J.Crew do a stylish version with all-over embellished crystal clusters but you can always check out stores like ASOS for more affordable buys.
4. Embellished T-Shirts
A bit of embellishment here and there can instantly glam up a basic wardrobe item. Give the humble t-shirt a high fashion makeover with some gem embellishments. You can DIY your own embellished t-shirt or check out versions by Lipsy and Topshop for a quick fashion fix.
5. Embellished Shoes
Put a spring in your step with some embellished shoes. From sandals and sneakers to ballet pumps and boots, embellishments are everywhere this season. Work a sporty look in a pair of studded sneakers, go preppy in some sequined loafers, or show some skin in gem embellished sandals. There’s an embellished shoe for all tastes and occasions.
6. Pearl Embellished Sweaters
Work a preppy, polished look with a (faux) pearl embellished sweater. Go for sweaters with all-over scattered pearl embellishments. You don’t have to break the bank for one of these embellished sweaters either, with stores like Forever 21 offering up affordable options. Wear them with anything from ripped jeans to ladylike pencil skirts.
7. Embellished Denim
Spring is an ideal time to break out the denim. Denim jackets, denim skirts, denim jeans – just make sure you go for the embellished variety. Try popping on a crystal embellished vest over a floaty dress, tucking a plain t-shirt into a gem embellished pencil skirt, or teaming a floaty blouse with embellished denim shorts.
8. Studded Biker Jackets
The biker jacket as reached cult status, and there are plenty of varieties to choose from. Since embellishments are a big trend this season, kill two trends with one stone (or something like that) and add a studded biker jacket to your wardrobe. Opt for neutral, pastel, or denim varieties rather than plain old black leather.
9. Embellished Hair Pieces
Instantly update your spring look by popping on an embellished hair piece. This is a cheap and practical option for those who don’t want to invest in a wardrobe full of embellished clothing. Look out for headbands, hair clips, and hair pins with gem and pearl embellishments.
These are just some ways for you to add embellishments to your wardrobes this spring. As you can see, no item of clothing has been spared from embellishments this season. How do you plan on rocking your embellishments?
