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. The holiday party season often mixes velvets, beading and sequins, lace, and metallics for sparkly looks in both formal and casual wear.

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.  Depending on the year sequins, beading, lace trims, and other embellished looks take center stage as holiday parties get going.

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.
