There are some trends I wouldn’t touch with a Barge Poll (Ath-Lesuire/ Sports Luxe), there are some I admire from afar (Harem Pants) and then I embrace some trends whole heartedly. My favorite in 2017 thus far have been; Bell Sleeves, and Embroidery. Both add such a fun detail, that shouldn’t date new pieces to a wardrobe too heavily.
Especially if you incorporate a trend within a wardrobe essential like a white blouse (or a blue striped blouse with a trendy detail). This embroidered beauty has a Mandarin collar, very flattering 3/4 length sleeves and falls out in a slight gather from just above the bust leaving a very flattering fit. The material feels very high quality, and is such a pure white.
I don’t have anything like it in my wardrobe, and it’s the sort of piece that can easily be used for work, a social event, or a formal event (such as a Hen Do). This top came from Matalan, and was very reasonably priced at £16. I adore this embroidery as its so unique compared to the other pieces I’ve seen, with an almost Hungarian theme.
What do you think, how would you style this shirt?
