What is “vyshyvanka” everybody is talking about
Where does vyshyvanka come from? And why everybody on instagram is talking about it? We are happy to give you some info about this trend piece of summer 2016 & a little advise how to style.
Vyshyvanka is a name of Ukrainian embroidered shirt, which is a part of the traditional national costume and has a long history behind it.
Vyshyvnka combines boho with chic, is easy wearable during the hot summer days & looks very fresh.

How to style vyshyvanka
Elena is wearing her vyshyvanka by Mamaika, which she brought from Kiev, Ukraine last year, casual in Berlin & relaxed on Maldives.
Vyshyvanka always adds a touch of boho & looks very laid-back. Probably you wouldn´t wear it to the office.
- combine it with denim to add a right amount of contrast in structures
- go for unexpected shoes, like man-alike brogues or your fav old chucks
- don´t overaccessorize with boho jewelry – vyshyvanka is already a statement enough & you probably don´t want to look as if you were going to a costume party
- it works also with simple cropped flared pants
it´s all personal
