Rich, folkloric embroidery that makes a bold style statement is part of this fall’s Russian-inspired look. The trick to wearing the embroidery trend is to make it look modern way so it oozes ‘pure class’ rather than ‘pure kitch’. Here are five ideas for how to wear embroidered clothes.
1. LET THE EMBROIDERY TAKE CENTRE STAGE
Now, this is embroidery with a capital ‘E’! As with winter florals, some of the embroidered tops we’re seeing this Fall are real scene stealers. Keep it classy by keeping the rest of your outfit simple and subtle.
I’ve done that here by pairing plain, black skinny jeans, soft green suede flats, and touches of dainty jewelry with this feminine tunic-length top. Top it off with a bag that brings out the colors in the embroidery and you’re good to go.
2. USE EMBROIDERY TO ELEVATE YOUR LBD
What woman doesn’t have a little black dress (or five!) hanging in their closets. If you’re like most women and your LBD is your go-to solution when you don’t know what to wear, kick it up several notches with embroidered boots.
These gorgeous suede boots with their high fashion embroidery are true headturners! Once again, keep everything else simple and let the boots do both the walking and the talking.

3. EMBROIDERY WORKS FOR EVERYDAY
Embroidered embellishments are just as appropriate for day as they are for night. We all want those pieces that do double-duty and this super-cute cardigan delivers. Toss it on with a pair of jeans and a pair of booties and you’ve got an easy and pulled-together look for day.
Switch out the jeans for a dress (black is a no-brainer choice but it could also be in another color that picks up on the colors in the embroidery) and the booties for a dressy pair of shoes and you’ve got a classy look for evening. The versatility of this cardi makes it a great piece to pack if you’re planning on traveling.
4. COLORED JEANS MAKE EMBROIDERY POP
A playful way to wear this trend is to throw on a pair of jeans in a color that matches one of the main colors of your embroidery. See how the feminine floral embroidery in this western-style chambray shirt comes to life when you add burgundy jeans? Burgundy, one of this Fall’s most popular colors, is a warm, sophisticated tone always look right.
5. TRY WEARING EMBROIDERY IN STRATEGIC DOSES
If all that color and busy embroidery feels a bit overwhelming to you, try adding embroidery in a smaller dose. This polished cross body bag with folkloric floral embroidery from Tory Burch is a classy way to rock the trend. A bag like this is all you need to take simple basics like jeans and a t-shirt to the next level. On second thought, this bag would take them right up to the roof! Love it!
