Embellishment can enchant our wardrobes, both day and night. From dazzling handbags to shimmery blouses, the embellishment trend offers richly inspiring looks. Embellished jewelry pieces, belts and shoes add a touch of glamour to any outfit.

From being used as a finer detail, to being carefully spread all over luxurious garments, embracing a brighter color story or looking soft and extremely feminine, the trend is artsy and elegant, created from many  varied techniques.

Whether you sparkle with sequins, rhinestones or embroidery, it’s totally fun to embellish your outfits from head to toe, or with just with one carefully chosen piece. Your choice doesn’t have to be extreme or go all-out, it can be a delicate adornment that subtly interprets the flash and sass of this sparkly, feminine trend. Whichever way you go, just wear embellishment with a bold attitude and a lot of confidence.

Some tricks to rock embellishment:

1. Accent a pair of jeans or black pants with an intricate, patterned beaded and bejeweled top.

2. Changing the way you wear earrings can change your entire look. Try larger, dangly earrings studded with colorful gemstones to add an exotic flair. These work great with long flowing maxis and sheath dresses.

3. Scout the flea market for vintage brooches with elaborate sparkling designs. If your top has a V-neck, try placing a large brooch at the base of the V.

4. Wear lots of bracelets together. Have fun layering and arranging them. It’s ok to go over-the-top!

There are many great styles and pieces available in all price points to offer you diverse choices in embellishments that are perfect for glittery spring and summer outfits. Be inspired and look inspiring!
