Embrace this delectable trend with pretty blouses and lust-worthy dresses
From oversized collars to whimsical gingham dresses, fashion’s gone super pretty this season, and our collective love of broderie anglaise has only increased. Gorgeously crafted white blouses and relaxed-but-ravishing broderie dresses are just too lovely to pass by – so thought the Victorians, who loved a bit of broderie anglaise, and big catwalk names such as Celine and Erdem, where the traditional needlework technique has been used to create striking modern designs. If you’re as obsessed with broderie as we are, you can’t go wrong with a stunning summer dress. Made from lightweight, breathable cotton, a broderie dress looks fabulous styled with tan leather sandals and a cross-body bag.
What better way to pretend you’re strolling through the Med, not your local town centre, than to wear a luscious broderie anglaise blouse? These tops just scream summer, and look great teamed with cargo shorts, mom jeans or tucked into a midi skirt. Whether it’s a cute cami with a zigzag hem, or a simple V-neck upgraded with ruffle detailing, broderie anglaise tops are a favourite that come back year after year, meaning the cost-per-wear box is very much ticked.
