From unique stitching on jean pockets to pretty threading on a jacket, detailed embroidery is one of the cutest trends around. It adds an element of detail to an outfit that can only be noticed by others once they are drawn into the wearer’s atmosphere, almost like a whispered secret that is only shared with one’s closest confidantes.

The origin of embroidery can be dated back to Cro-Magnon days, or 30,000 BC. Embroidery has also been discovered in archaeological digs in Siberia, China, and Latin America. It is believed to have symbolized the wearer’s financial wealth.

Nowadays, embroidery symbolizes a wearer’s wealth of style. UCLA students can be seen sporting this trend on some of the most unexpected pieces of clothing, making their outfits chic and put-together. Check out how a few Bruins wear their embroidery:
