Plus-Size Beaded, Embellished & Embroidered Fashion Report

Beading, embroidery and embellishments can turn up in almost any style of clothing.  A staple component of some looks such as the hand crafted and ethnic tradition infused BoHo style or the spiked and studded toughness of the Punk style, it can also enhance a variety of other classic to trendy clothing styles. Although beads, sequins and embroidery are the most common other embellishments can include hardware such as buckles and zippers, appliqués, and soutache braiding.  Embellished tops and dresses are the most common, although sometimes embroidery and beading can turn up on other items such as jeans.

Evening looks have long used crystals, beads, sequins and other embellishments to add sparkle and shine, but casual, daytime looks are increasingly using this design element as well. High end designer fashion often adds luxury touches through fine hand bead work which can be emulated with machine produced embellishments at lower price points. 

Holiday sweaters and tees are known for the bling of sparkly beads and embroidery that celebrate the festive season.

Some fashion seasons also produce beaded, embroidered, studded and embellished accessories such as shoes, belts, and handbags.

Shopping Resources for Embroidered & Beaded Plus-Size Clothing

During the holiday shopping season pieces with more embellishments are found at most retailers throughout our shopping directories, regardless of style.

Of the high end, luxury designer plus-size clothing resources Neiman Marcus tends to carry the most labels with embroidery and embellishments.  Many looks have a distinctly upscale resort and BoHo flavor. Look especially for the Johnny Was label.

The evening looks from brands such as Pisarro Nights and Adrianna Papell which are regularly available from Dillard's and Nordstrom tend to be heavily beaded, along with formalwear labels such as Terani Couture and Mac Duggal.  Those looking for beaded Gatsby and flapper dresses will find an excellent selection at Unique Vintage.  Check out the "Prom" tab for vintage inspired evening gowns many of which are heavily embellished with sizes available as large as 30W.  ModCloth also has party frocks and dresses with vintage style beading and detailing for size XS to 4X.

The best collections of plus-size embroidered and beaded jeans and denim jackets are at Monroe & Main and their sister catalog, Midnight Velvet.  Mainly straight leg and boot cut styles, they regularly carry multiple options with embroidered and beaded legs in size 6 to 24W.  Meanwhile, Pyramid Collection has a goth, bohemian, and steampunk vibe to many of their tops, dresses, footwear, accessories, and separates collections that are often heavily embellished in size 2 to 28W.

QVC is the spot to find sweaters with whimsical beading and embellishments from the popular Quacker Factory label.  You'll find holiday sweaters here all year for size 0 to 28W.

Meanwhile, those who wear extended plus-size will find both more embroidery with a casual, bohemian flavor and evening beading at Ulla Popken with sizes 12 to 38W.
