Style lessons: embroidery.

And I'm not talking about that on grandmas furniture or doilies. I'm talking about the folklore-inspired embroidery of Spring/Summer and Resort collections for 2015! You know, like the one seen on Isabel Marant's bohemian style navy blue tunic? Embroidery is one of the hottest fashion trends for summer - even the tiniest patch can give a certain charm to your dress, top or a bag and, undoubtedly, a very much coveted boho vibe to your entire outfit.

- If you would like to indulge in embellishments, embroidery is the perfect alternative to sequins and beads - it is more subtle and suitable for both day and night.
- It is usually patched on materials such as cotton, gauze and linen. These are lightweight, easy and breezy fabrics just perfect for the hot summer temperatures. (A win-win situation.)
- You don't have to channel your inner beach bohemian goddess to pull this trend off - embroidery can work just as well for the casual stroll around town or a day in the office. 
- Which color to choose? You can never go wrong with royal blue on white materials, or white and light tone thread and yarns on both black.
- A simple way to give this trend a try is with a blouse or an off shoulder top. You can wear it with a pair of denim cutoffs for a casually chic look; or make it work double duty as a beach cover up.
 - As summer evenings can get a bit chilly, opt for a jacket or a kimono with a piece of embroidery. Then let it be the focal point of your look by keeping the rest of the outfit simple and streamlined.
-  But the easiest way to incorporate embroidery into your look - bag, backpack or a clutch. Its relaxed feel will give you an element of effortlessness as well as boost of fun colors and patterns that are right on trend.

So, whether you’re stocking up your closet for next weeks or your next tropical vacation, take a look at some of the street style looks
