All In The Embroidery

Sweater: SheIn | Dress: Forever 21 (Similar) | Sunglasses: ASOS (Similar) | Shoes: Target (Similar)

Years and years ago, I was flipping through a British Vogue in the back of a rental car in England when I came across a style tip that I'm still obsessed with to this day. It went a little something like this: if you want to make a silky skirt or dress look casual, simply throw on a cozy pullover. It was so effortless and so genius and I remember it resonating strongly with my inquisitive 14 year old self, who had only just started getting into fashion a few years prior and was constantly awe-struck with the beautiful fashion spreads I had began exposing myself to. Yet while I loved the style advice that british Vogue had to offer, I don't think I ever actually tried out the combination for myself until doing the shoot you see here. You know a tip is a classic however when 8 years later, it still manages to work. And I for one am an avid lover of cozy pullovers and satin pieces, so this is going to be a lifelong lesson for me - right up there with never pairing sneakers with dresses (I'm sorry, I just can't) and never underestimating the power of lipstick.

The pullovers and silky dress combo is also a great way to give your look a hint of athleisure. The sweater adds a sporty touch to your ensemble while the dress, heels and cat eye glasses keeps things glitzy & fabulous. As for the embroidery, I seriously never thought I would get into the trend but I seem to have succumbed to the bandwagon. I wasn't a fan of it at first but as time went on and I kept seeing ultra cute bags, jeans and sweater rocking the style on virtually every social media feed to exist, my opinion on it gradually began to change. Then when I saw this sweater on Shein's site with this gorgeous floral embroidery, I just knew I had to give it a chance. I'm definitely glad I did, seeing as it finally helped me bring to life that lovely style tip I read so many years ago.
