How to dress down an embroidered top


Embroidered tops are lovely, aren't they? It's hard not to get noticed in one, in spite of the fact that many people are wearing them right now. It's because they're so pretty that you're bound to stand out. However, there are times when we don't want to be flashy. Sometimes, we want to look pretty without trying too hard. But how do you begin to accomplish that when you're wearing a colorful embroidered top? I'll tell you how.

First, stay away from print and pair with solid colors. Your embroidered top is already getting enough attention and anything extra would only make you stand out more. So wear it with colors like white, black, navy blue, grey, etc.

Second, go casual. Pair it with denim or khakis. Denim can be dressed up or down, but I think everyone can agree that there's something "down to earthy" about denim. Once you pair your embroidered top with denim you become "the girl next door" but with a little spice.

Third, take the casual look further by wearing casual shoes like sneakers, slippers or sporty sandals. This would certainly tone down your look and give you an effortless flare.

Finally, but not necessarily, limit your makeup. Granted, my red lips are proof that I didn't apply this rule. However, I wear red lipstick most of the time so I didn't feel the need to change my norm. 

I hope this helps the next time you feel like dressing down your embroidered top.
