By on January 29, 2015, in Fashion Trends, Soft Surroundings

It’s that time of the year when daydreams of spring take over with visions of vibrant, mood-lifting colors, romantic florals, flounces and airy fabrics. This season, designers took delight in adorning their fresh styles with innovative and unique 3D embellishments. The result ranges from the dramatic to the playful while creating alluring depth of texture.

Whether through colorful, elaborate embroidery, mixed fabrics, beaded appliqués, intricate stitch work or trims of silk, mesh or fringe, three-dimensional detailing adds a luxurious and unexpected touch.

To avoid too much dazzle, you can balance the look of 3D embellishment by pairing the trend with denim or a simple, sleek pant or skirt. Of course, there are also plenty of options featuring tonal embroideries and trims for a more subtle effect.

Thanks to the diverse, romantic and playfully eclectic feel of fashion this year, there are endless possibilities to embellish. Collect a few of these eye-catching beauties to lift your wardrobe into a new dimension!

Pattern Play

Our Secret Garden Jacket is a perfect balance of vibrant color and pattern play with its mix of two luxurious fabrics. Finely woven wool in a paisley motif plays with embroidered rayon to make this intriguing jacket pop with texture and detail.


Intricate Beauty

The West Indies Tunic I embodies the 3D trend in culturally rich design and tropical hues. Elaborate stitch-work and delightful color play on airy mesh fabric to make this a favorite for the spring season.


Alluring Movement

3D embellishment can also feature trims and beadwork that allow for playful movement. The Pacific Waves Top achieves this through trims of mesh, satin, crinkled chiffon and subtle beading to give it a sense of flowing water. Our Fab Fringe Cardi creates a sense of dimension and flirtatiousness through its adornment of fringe.


Wearable Art

Layering basics become standalone styles when richly textured embroidery is added. In the case of our Adora Top, colorful folkloric design is taken to dramatic and alluring lengths to create a wearable work of art.


Tonal Texture

Heightened dimension can also be accomplished through special fabric treatments and washes, as well as tonal accents. The Presley Tee is specially dyed and adorned with tonal crochet trim to create intriguing coloration and texture. Our Santa Fe Shirt, made of crinkled Peruvian cotton, features tonal soutache and pintucks for a gorgeous multi-dimensional effect.

    Great post! 3D embellishments are such a nice touch to a simple blouse to add to an overall plan outfit. Simple beading really makes a shirt stand out, and I must say- the Adora Top is my absolute favorite here.
