We've covered our lace, studded detailing, and brocade bases; now, it's time to take on the embroidered silhouette. No, we're not referring to the kind that comes with monogrammed initials. Instead, we're culling shopping inspiration from the Fall 2012 runways. Jason Wu crafted an Eastern-inspired collection marked by its ornate gold appliqué embroidery, which was added to everything from compact clutches to sexy cocktail dresses. Stella McCartney put a floral-embroidery spin on her sportier, cobalt-blue trumpet-hem skirts and crisp, white blouses; Rag & Bone embellished its jeans with quirky embroidered side piping; and Miu Miu put a classic embroidery crest on its luxe, jewel-heeled loafers. To say this trend spanned a wide spectrum of designer sensibilities is an understatement. Get Fall's new approach to embroidered wares with our editors' need-now picks — right here.
