Broderie Anglaise

As soon as warmer weather hits, there’s only one fabric we want to wear – we immediately reach for anything broderie anglaise. For now we’re making our broderie blouses work for every occasion, from a day at the office to a spring wedding. Layered with our trusty mac or leather jacket, we’ll be wearing these blouses from now until September.

Off-Duty

Just as easy to wear as a tee, but giving the illusion of being more dressed-up, elevate your weekend look with delicate embroidery. Add a cross-body bag for a simple but chic outfit.

For Work

Broderie anglaise may seem too casual for a work environment, but when teamed with the right separates it can easily be made office-appropriate. Avoid anything too sheer, for obvious reasons (or layer over a camisole), and keep the rest of your look pared back.

On Holiday

This is where broderie anglaise really comes into its own, and we always pack a blouse on holiday. It makes the perfect beach or poolside cover-up, but is also ideal for keeping you cool when sightseeing or on a hot city break.

For an Event

The delicate fabric of broderie anglaise lends itself perfectly to event dressing. Take it from casual to formal with your accessories – a statement shoe or clutch will lift the whole outfit.
