My Classic Closet: Broderie

19 May 2019 1 comment

Ah my love for broderie anglaise is both obvious and undeniable.

It's the quintessential summerwear in my eyes. I love how intricate and detailed the fabric can be, breathable, most often cotton. It's the lace for the practical - not so sugary and whimsical.

I've seen so many beautiful pieces that really would break the bank (why is £1.5K+ for a cotton dress necessary?!) but the good news is that there are plenty of options on the high street.

I picked up this classic broderie shirt dress which I adore - the shape and cut is just perfect, it's a must have for any classic closet. The pattern on this broderie blouse is unique, I've not seen anything else like it, and the quality is top notch. I also picked up this scalloped-neckline dress - the midi length and scalloped detailing is gorgeous. For those on a budget, I'd recommend this affordable broderie blouse and this detailed, strappy dress, which comes in a beautiful pale blue as well as black and white.

In case you're looking to add a few more broderie options to your wardrobe, here are some of my picks:
