Embroidered clothes are hot this winter

Glamorous, gorgeous and opulent – the heavily embellished frocks that floated down the Alexander McQueen and Dolce and Gabbana AW16 catwalks were truly out of this world, and those shows have gone on to fuel one of autumn’s biggest trends.

Embroidered detailing is now everywhere and, luckily for us, the high street has taken that after-dark decadence and given it round-the-clock potential.

Long or short, sleeved or not, these fabulous frocks can really hold their own, so just add simple black suede or velvet heels and a boxy clutch, and you’re ready to wow.

Bringing a hint of elegance to the everyday, delicate embroidery takes a sweatshirt from workout to work wear, and adds interest to the classic jeans-and-jumper combo.

Whether bomber or biker, this season it’s imperative that your trusty black jacket is adorned with colourful stitching.

Give your midi skirts a rest and discover how useful a little A-line mini is in winter, teamed with thick tights and a chunky pair of boots.

Millie Mackintosh embraced this season’s velvet vibes at the Red Women of the Year Awards, pairing her pyjama-style belted black suit with dark red lips and nails. Simple but very chic indeed.
