Embroidery is one of the hottest trends in fashion for Spring/Summer 2017. One of the oldest techniques used to adorn not only apparel, but also applied to handbags, scarfs, shoes, decor pieces, and now even high tech items. In its history, Embroidery was seen as a sign of power, wealth, and rank. Today, I believe the meaning is, “Spring has arrived”. Embroidery to me just makes an item more special; there’s a timeless essence to whatever piece it adorns. Now making a comeback, this artful trend can be seen everywhere. So for the Embroidery Trend Spring Summer 2017, I decided to gather my favorite looks from Anthropologie and Free People. My wishlist just got a whole lot longer . . .
The beautiful floral print of the Samsa Embroidered Sundress ($288) is just lovely with the black embroidery.
An exceptional example of colorful embroidery and tassels is the Embroidered Soleil Top ($118); love the eye-catching back.
High on my wishlist is the Farina Embroidered Blouse ($98); with its beautiful embroidered cotton and off-the-shoulder silhouette.
Also crushing hard on the Vanna Embroidered Tunic ($138); fantastic display of colorful embroidery, looks like a piece of art. Can only say one word, “Want!”
The Mariposa Embroidered Top ($168) has lovely garden inspired embroidery and a fantastic hem of cascading silk.
Made with cotton stripes and adorned with tassels is the ethnic inspired beauty the McKay Embroidered Topper ($174).
Loving the eye-catching and versatile Sunburst Denim Jacket ($250) by Capulet.
The Jinette Denim Skirt ($298) is selling out fast; love its ornate embroidery and lace detail.
A must have for Spring Summer 2017 and at a great price is the Needlepoint Tank ($58).
Also selling out quick is the Embroidered Gerbera Sweatshirt ($148); love its worn-in pullover style and chunky embroidery.
I love how embroidery can elevate a pair of shorts such as the Pathway Embroidered Shorts ($78) by Chloe Oliver.
My favorite use of embroidery is when its used to embellish the hell out of a bag. The Santina Embroidered Crossbody Bag ($248) is stunning with its detail of beads and the use of brightly hued embroidery.
The Chelsea Crew Embroidered Floral Sandals ($118) has just the right touch of embroidery to makes these wedges a real show stopper.
The Pour La Victoire Havana Block Heels ($278) has a really great strong and feminine vibe, with a great attention to detail in its embroidery and fringe.
In the scarf verse, the Abstract Embroidered Infinity Scarf ($78) displays a fine mix of adornments.
At Free People:
The Perfectly Victorian Mini ($168) reminds me of an upscale version of the Mexican dresses I saw in San Antonio at the markets. Love the vibrant Spring ready magenta color as well as the other color choices the dress comes in.
Love the botany looking embroidery of the Enchanted Garden Mini Dress ($148) or what I like to call, “A tunic you can wear with pants”. A beautiful simple shift silhouette with an off-the-shoulder neckline.
The Embroidered Stripe Pullover ($228) features an eye-catching stripe design with embroidery and sequins in a hooded tunic.
Love the chic looking sheer one-shoulder top of the Shanti Embroidered Tunic ($168).
Ethnic embroidery and a vintage wash make the FP One Three Wishes Sweatpants ($148) look vibrant in the cranberry color.
The Knockout Embellished Jacket ($228) with its heavy embellishments, colorful embroidery and mirror accents makes it a definite knockout.
OMG! The Millie Dress (now $199.95) stuns with its eye-catching embroidery on the bust and along the slit of the leg, making this gorgeous apron-inspired silky dress a must have.

Love the eye-catching embroidery on the Embroidered Swingy Jacket ($168).
Love the jacket in the ivory colorway as well.
The award for most stunning in this lineup is the Cowl Embroidered Maxi Dress ($550). Love the awe-inspiring embroidery throughout as well as the elegant cowl neckline making this the go-to dress for special occasions.
Another beautiful example of embroidery is shown on the Cava flat ($110) by Jeffery Campbell; looks like a slipper suited for a queen.
Loving the embroidered detail and snake motif on the Pandora Embroidered Tote ($138).
The perfect makeover for your high-tech accessory is the ornately embroidered FP Embroidered iPhone Case ($28); too beautiful not to show off.
Nothing gets me more excited than seeing beautiful embroidery on a garment, on a bag, on a pair of sandals, or even on an iPhone case; it really gives the item a timeless specialty feel. The Embroidery Trend Spring Summer 2017 is one fashion trend that has me coming back for more.
