Summer Trends 2017: Embroidery

What's better than one summer trend? Two! This Rose Applique Off-the-Shoulder Dress from SheIn checks off two off the hottest summer trends (cold shoulder and embroidery) in one! Plus it's super affordable, at $17.99. Embroidery has been a break-out trend this summer, and while I appreciate it looks really cool, until I found this dress, I had a hard time finding a piece of clothing with embroidery that I felt fit my style. Most were jeans jackets and the like - just not a good fit. But this off-the-shoulder dress is so sweet!

I don't know about you, but I don't handle hot summers all that well; I always like to have a few dresses on-hand that are very loose and flowy - perfect to wear on a day when you don't want anything sticking to you. You can even wear this one without the belt and have it super loose, but I prefer a cinched waist, so I added this braided faux leather belt. I also like to match my accessories, my belt and my shoes, like I have here.

If you're trying to figure out "but what do I wear under it???", I wore a one-piece shapewear and tucked in the thin straps to make it strapless. Because the dress is white, it's a little less forgiving, so you'll want to make sure you're wearing something nude coloured underneath, and the shapewear helps just to make sure any lines are noticeable. Plus, the one thing I hate about strapless bras is that they're always riding down: the shapewear tends to eliminate that issue.

Have you tried the embroidery trend yet?
