Boho Spring Trend: Embroidery
During the springtime season bohemian brands like Free People and THML make their way to the front of the closet with their fun flowy cuts and colorful patterns. One way boho style is achieved is with colorful embroidery on a simple gauzy fabric, and we at Mint can’t get enough of the boho embroidered look for spring! From off the shoulder tops, to crop tops, lace up dresses and bell sleeve details, embroidery is making its way into all of our favorite styles for spring. Embroidered pieces evoke a sense of free spirited fun with elements of folk art handicrafts that are ideal for sunny days spent outside or at your go-to café.
This drop waist shift dress from THML is just so darling for a sunny spring day spent at the park following a casual morning brunch in town with its colorful casual style. The soft beige linen-blend fabric is embroidered in a panel up the front in bright summery colors and swirling floral patterns that include birds, branches, and flowers. Shades of light blues and greens with pops of brilliant red and orange evoke the hues of a summer’s day by the sea bringing to mind a tranquil and joyous environment that we can embrace even now in the earliest days of spring. A double ruffle hem is flouncy and flirty while tassels at the neckline provide a touch of beachy boho detailing. Pair this dress with a wide brim hat and sunglasses for a chic take on bohemian weekend style.
Embroidery often takes on repeating geometric patterns, as it does here on this THML light blue shift dress. Featuring an embroidered runner up the center of the dress and scattered diamond shapes across the rest of the space this dress has a distinctly beachy feel. Navy, orange and red threads adorn the light sky blue background, an ideal color combo for pairing with neutral tan leather and metallic accessories. Wear this loose fitting peasant style dress now with wedge sandals and a slouchy loose-knit cardigan as the weather warms up, and then once summer hits take this vintage inspired piece to the beach over a two piece and slip on shoes with a straw beach bag to complete the look. Embrace the boho embroidery look with equally peasant chic accessories like straw and leather.
Free People is a brand that excels at defining the boho chic look, and this floral balloon sleeve crop top is no exception. In a caramel beige color this cotton top provides a neutral base for embroidered details to burst forth and take the stage. Shades of yellow, peach and burgundy create a floral landscape across the planes of this off the shoulder blouse, incorporating more muted spring colors into the look. Long balloon sleeves are cinched with an elastic wristband creating a dramatic and flowy look that fits in with current wide sleeve spring trends. The cropped cut and off the shoulder styling are ideal for festival fashion looks paired with a high waisted bohemian skirt, or with ripped up denim jeans or shorts for a trendy springtime look. Braid a fresh sunflower into your hair to complete the carefree flower child look as you skip off to a full day of festival fun in this Free People top.
While embroidery is often elaborate and colorful taking the center stage, it can also be used to create delicate and feminine looks, like on this Free People off the shoulder dress. Delicate flowers are scattered over this navy blue Counting Daisies mini dress in a girly fit and flare silhouette. In true festival style, this dress incorporates multiple boho trends like wide bell sleeves and an elastic off the shoulder top, as well as featuring inset lattice lace along the skirt and sleeves. Fitted along the top before flaring out, the swingy skirt will make you want to twirl about in the grass to your favorite live music bands.
