STYLE ADVICE: Something for the weekend
Posted February 10, 2017on:
Embroidery and appliqué are livening up our must-have wardrobe basics, from bright floral needlepoint on shoes and biker jackets to cute and cheeky patchwork appliqué on denim and outerwear. These details give a softer edge to tougher pieces. It’s like wearing an emoji. Whilst admittedly this Alice + Olivia parka costs a bomb I couldn’t resist showing it to you. You can achieve the same effect with your own parka – just add badges £6! But, you’ll also find some fabulous pieces on the high street like this badge detail coat from V by Very £60. They have a longer style too at £70. River Island has gone wild with floral embroidery, and all those blooms give a pretty blush to this khaki coat £48.
The details don’t stop here. Criss-cross ties, ribbons, corsets, you name it…all the pieces to give a cheeky twist to your favourite investment cashmere jumpers. Looking to the high street I am still on Zara’s wish list for these tie-front jumpers both in black £25.99 and a breton stripe. Go on, join me. I first saw these boots on thelondoner.com and that’s why they are here now – the perfect weekend style. Natalie x
