The Edit: 9 Ways to Wear Embroidery This Summer

Your look needs this needlework.


When it first occurred to me to do to a roundup of embroidery for The Edit this week, I found myself reciting a Miranda Priestly a la The Devil Wears Prada line: “Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.” (Except in my head it was, “Embroidery? For summer?”) Embroidery isn’t exactly a trailblazing summer trend, but the typical iteration is more likely to be seen on a pair of ancient Levi’s than on a polished jacket or a pair of barely-there d’orsay flats. Here, 9 ways to make embroidery look polished and chic this summer. Miranda Priestly be damned.
