Embroidery Love

Embroidery is everywhere this season thanks to the huge boho/folk 1970s inspired trend that’s all over the stores.

Boho/folk styles mean lots of embellishments and textures – tassels, crochet, mirrors, leathers, quilting, and that embroidery. From simple, small embroidery patches to full-on embroidered pieces – it’s all good!

Here’s a few of our favourite embroidered pieces around the Ocean Terminal stores just now.

Let’s start with a simple black dress with embroidery, a midi, on the left, from BHS (£25), and a super smock style from French Connection on the right (£150).

A simple Bardot neckline gives this monochrome embroidered dress a modern edge, and less of a traditional boho feel. (£24.99, New Look).

Embroidered dresses can be bold, or simple. The gorgeous floral embroidery on this white French Connection shift dress (£165) is stunning. On the H&M smock dress (£29.99), the embroidery is subtle but striking, giving the dress a true boho feel.

Embroidery works beautifully on simple summer pieces. This cute blue New Look playsuit (£19.99) has simple white embroidery. The black strapless beach dress has cute embroidered flowers, and is perfect beachwear (£34, Floozie by FrostFrench @ Debenhams).

H&M’s longline jacket (£79.99) is super cool, and embroidery at its very best – with beading and mirrors. Beautiful.

A cute pair of shorts are brought to life with a little bit of embroidery – simple red flowers on denim at H&M (£19.99), and lovely vibrant colours on black (£19.99).

Or go one step better with these FAB embroidered dungarees from French Connection (£110). We adore these.

Carry your embroidery on your bag – in a monochrome bucket bag from New Look (£15.99), or a leather satchel style from JOY (£59).
