As embellishments continue to shine, Spring 2014 sees them divide between subtle statements and extreme detailing. Whichever way you go, just wear them with conviction. You can describe them as spectacular, bold, unconventional, luxurious or utterly feminine, but whatever the choice of words one thing is clearer than ever: the eye-catching embellishments aren’t going anywhere any time soon so you might as well learn how to best experience all that breathtaking beauty.
Last season put the spotlight on lace, floral appliques, pearls and sequins, but as the trend progressed we are facing a Spring divided between subtle statements and extreme detailing. This season, the embellishment trend experiences a full bloom. From being used as a finer detail, to being carefully spread all-over garments, from embracing a brighter colour palette to looking soft and extremely feminine, the trend becomes even more elegant as built upon many and very different techniques.
Soft Tinted Embellishments: For a finer, more restrained take on the trend, the soft tinted embellishments offer the perfect alternative for a feminine and classy look, enriched with the right amount of sparkle. From pastel colours to delicate whites, the quiet shades are both subtle and exquisite, looking sharp and rather timeless. Ideally used in accenting your best features, your silhouette or an intricate cut, the embellishments that come as highlights are another way of sporting the trend with ease. They can be subtle, or intricate, colourful or soft, as long as they complement your figure and your outfit choice alike, they will feel effortless.
