You’d have to have been without WIFI for some time not to have been aware that The Embroidered Blouse is seriously big news this season. Naturally the boldest and most volumised tops take the lead in the most-instagrammed styles list but if you’re looking to work this trend in a more wearable way which feels flattering to your figure, look no further than my top 5 white embroidered blouses.
Each one works to enhance a part of the body you love or perhaps disguise an area you’ve fallen out of love with, and the good news; you can dip your toe into this trend without breaking the bank as each blouse featured below is under £25.
Flatter a bigger bust
The neckline itself may just be a small V notch shape but the embroidery creates a deep V shape to break up a bigger bust area, without flashing too much cleavage in the process.
Cold shoulder embroidered cotton top, £18, TU
Enhance a smaller bust
The fine plissé finish (super thin crinkle pleats, tie neckline and seam just above the bust will enhance your bust, whatever the size. Just beware if you’re on the larger size and conscious of a buxom look.

Show off arms
If you’ve been working hard on your arms in the gym or you’ve been unknowingly toning up thanks to lifting baby/toddler weights for the past few years, let your arms be seen while still rocking the embroidered blouse trend.
Skim a tummy
Disguise a rounded tum with this blouse where the shape skims over bumps and the focus is on the print and statement volume sleeves.
