Make A Statement In Embellished Shoulders

With the holidays approaching, serious wow factor is a must for every festive outfit. Embellished shoulders on coats, jackets and dresses is one of the most interesting ways to make a statement this season and fortunately there are so many options that there is a different degree to suit every style.

Burberry added contrasting black shoulder embellishments to white body-hugging dresses for the season. The embellishments are subtle for someone not looking for sparkly bling.

Blake Lively did add sparkle when she attended the launch of Gaga’s Workshop at Barney’s in this bold cobalt suit Elie Saab suit with gold shoulder embellishments. She stuck to her typical sexy style by opting to not wear anything under the dazzling blazer.

Jason Wu took a Southwest approach to embellished shoulders in his F/W 2011 collection. He added colourful floral embellishments to this dark jacket for a piece that can add style to any outfit.
