ALL IN THE DETAILS: Sew in Style

The temperature is starting to rise here in central Illinois and students at Illinois State University are beating the heat with the coolest trends of the summer. The latest trend spotted on campus is the embroidered, boho look. Fashionistas across campus are sporting boho style with touches of fringe, crotchet and lace. This lighthearted, inspired styling is mixing it up with delicate details and intricate stitching to give it an effortless, cool vibe.

The Fashionista captured above rocked the bohemian-inspired trend with touches of crotchet detailing. She wore an off-white peasant top with long, bell sleeves adorned with embroidered, die cut detailing. She added a splash of color with multicolored, printed shorts that were trimmed with crotchet pom-poms. The smock waistband gives the soft shorts the ability to be worn comfortably in the summer heat. Adding neutral-colored strap sandals that complemented the handbag slung over her shoulder gave a casual-chic touch. When choosing accessories, it is best to go light on the jewelry. Golden drop earrings and hand chains serve as the perfect finishing touches.

The versatility of embroidered pieces can allow a Fashionista to rock this look from a day spent in the classroom to a night with the family.
