5 OF THE BEST EMBELLISHED PIECES
By Eleanor Dunne, 20 July 2019
Dresses, shoes, accessories... these are a few of our favourite things. But do you know what makes our fashion faves even more special? Embellishment. Yes, there's no doubt that an item's status rises on the sartorial chart when there are sequins or beads sewn on. Just take a look at these five beauties for proof...
Your vacation, BNO, and vacation BNO prayers are answered in this beaded mini dress. Of course, there’s the standout intricate embellishment – but the cut-out sides and Aztec-style motif are also serious wins. For daytime, slip a tee underneath. Whatever the time of day, we've got a need for these beads.
Show and shell
Shells have been adorning everything from playsuits to jewellery this season. And these cute slides look like we found 'em right at the bottom of the ocean. Wear them with your fave denim shorts and a white crop top.
They say the good things come in pairs, and that’s definitely true in this case. This sequin co-ord will have you shining under the spotlight – and looking like the disco ball as you dance under it. Add gold heels and jewellery to make it really pop.
Go get gem
What do you get when you cross a nice bit of embellishment with so-2019 raffia and the season’s penchant for hair accessories? This cute and colourful hairband of course. Use it to add a feminine touch to edgier looks.
And last but certainly not least, we have this sparkling silver dress that’s basically dripping in diamanté. A look so glam it wouldn’t look out of place at the MTV Awards.
