Let’s be honest! We can’t wait for the most feminine and colorful season. Spring is here and the great summer is just around the corner. Both periods are announcing brightly embroidered colors on bags, shirts, dresses, denim jackets, leather jackets, chokers, boots, and every piece of garment you can imagine.

Embroidery is not a new practice, in fact it can be traced all the way back to the Iron Age of human civilization. It is believed that is part of the Chinese Zhou Dynasty, around 1045 BC. For Asians the embroidery represents power, wealth and was specially used to assign a meaning to each symbol. For example, a plum blossom was the representation of good fortune.

For Spring/Summer 2017 brands like Gucci and Alexander McQueen were not subtle with their use of embellishments. Even though embroidery trend looks much more refined and expensive today, fast fashion retailers like Forever21, Zara, H&M, Bershka, etc. are embracing these jewel-toned stitches.

The jackets – leather and denim- are going to be a huge hit and they are to die for as well! Check below how you can pair your patched garments and where you can find them for less than US$120.00 –amazing!
