Cross-stitching is an important element of the Dolce&Gabbana FW2013 collection, and it has to become part of your wardrobe. For this week’s instalment Fashion Editor Yuri Ahn works on two looks with cross-stitched garments at the centre.
Lets mix and match with cross-stitching. With this adorable tulip shaped mini skirt match a lace top with hand embroidery- so lovely. Cover up with an astrakhan cape and a pair of black Mary Janes with gold piping. This is a day to evening look, so carry a mid size bag like this white Sicily Slim.To be even more romantic add beautiful oversize black tulle earrings with golden filigree, pearls and black crystals from the fashion show. This styling has a little extra, its girly, a day look, in my opinion, but it can work for a dinner date too. What man will not love a girl who turns up dressed like this?
The second option is a cross-stitched dress with lace inserts which skims the figure, it’s actually rather figure hugging. It may seem like a typical Dolce&Gabbana silhouette, but the puff sleeves make it new for FW13, and very romantic. Wear it with this coat: it has the right fit to match the dress. The double-breasted bodice is very tight while the skirt flares due to the pleating at the waist, and the new modified kimono sleeves, which are very chic. Wear it with a crochet clutch with Sicilian inspired charms, and cross-stitched pumps which match the dress. I would wear the fashion show jewellery with this look too. This look is a bit more classic, but that element of romanticism sticks.
