Different Kinds of Appliques and Embellishments

Guess the Amazing Appliqué!

What makes certain clothes and accessories stand out from others? For me, it's the cuts, colors, and my all-time favorite detail: appliqués. For example, Diane Kruger's stunning Jason Wu mini would be a plain, red shift dress if it weren't for the beaded black shoulder embellishments. See what I mean? It's all in the details. Take my quiz to see if you're an appliqué guru.
