Trends take a while to grow on me, and I finally see the light that is embroidery. The final push came when I fell in love with Shein’s embroidered rose patch shorts. Now before you say anything, yes, I’m aware many people have reservations about Shein. I was one of them. To address this, I decided to make this post a Shein review alongside a feature of my new shorts. Let’s kill two birds with one stone, shall we?
I was browsing Shein’s website out of boredom when I chanced upon the embroidered rose patch Shorts. They were cheap, yes, but I was wary to order from a brand that the internet has such mixed reviews on. Coincidentally, just a few days later, Shein themselves contacted me for a collaboration. A chance to try out their clothes and potentially find a new staple shopping destination? Yes, please!

A plain top works best to highlight a pair of statement bottoms, so I decided on my trusty Forever 21 Girls White T-Shirt (link here) to start the outfit off. Yes, the shirt is technically made for girls under 12, but hey, it fits me well so I might as well take advantage of the friendlier price. 😉 A tip to all: don’t confine yourself to the women’s section!
My style has always been minimalist and I could never think of a way to incorporate embroidery into my outfits. But that was before I fell in love with the Heather Knit Embroidered Rose Patch Cuffed Shorts (link here). It’s exactly as its name describes: three red roses, one big and two small, stitched over the left leg of the shorts. The bright red embroidery pops out beautifully on the grey colour base.
I’ve always maintained low expectations when it comes to shopping online, no matter how reliable the seller. There are just so many things that could go wrong in the process. However, I found myself waiting with bated breath for my Shein package. Luckily, the Heather Knit Embroidered Rose Patch Cuffed Shorts (link here) in Size XS arrived in perfect condition. Not only did they fit well, they were also very comfortable and made of good quality.
The Heather Knit Embroidered Rose Patch Cuffed Shorts (link here) are selling at USD$10.00. For a statement piece that fits comfortably and is made so well, it’s a steal for sure. It’s great for the days when you want to look casual but not underdressed. Just out for the sizes. They run slightly small!
To complete the casual look, I slid on my Keds Champion Originals (link here). I’ve fallen in love with them again since digging them out for my previous outfit featuring Romwe. The trainers round off the neutral colour palette in a way that doesn’t steal the spotlight from the statement piece, Shein’s embroidered shorts. And a bonus? They’re super comfortable to wear!
No matter how casual the day out, though, a girl can never leave the house without a bag. I only had a few staples to bring with me so I took along my trusty H&M Black Small Shoulder Bag (link here). It’s surprisingly big for such a tiny looking thing. If you’re searching for a crossbody bag that won’t break the bank, you can’t go wrong with this one from H&M.
I hope you found my Shein review useful. My embroidered shorts did not disappoint, and I think I’ve found myself a new staple online shopping destination. My only regret is giving in to the embroidery trend so late! Let me know in the comments below whether or not you own any embroidered pieces yourself, and if so, how you like to style them!
