Unexpected Hero

The Embroidered Dress

Embroidered dresses have been a big trend for a while now, and with summer on the way it’s one that’s showing no signs of abating. Despite the fact that the Ukrainian dress is quite a statement item, with its bold colours and heavy embroidery, it’s extremely versatile, which means that you can slip seamlessly from day to night. The Vyshyvanka dress has become an unexpected hero for us, rapidly gaining ‘essential’ status in the modern woman’s wardrobe.  

Top Tips:
  • Remember to cinch in your waist with the more voluminous styles
  • This is quite a feminine trend, so don’t be afraid to toughen it up with a leather jacket
  • Vyshyvanka dresses are a bold look – keep accessories pared back
  • Try layering a thin poloneck knit underneath if the weather isn’t up to scratch
