Embroidered accents have always conjured images of Bohemian beach tunics and those little black Chinese slippers you could get in China Town for about $5 a pop, but this season it has hit the mainstream in a big way. Applied to everything from tulle (big since the Fall), to the now ubiquitous bomber jacket, embroidered embellishments add just a little bit of color and texture, while also not taking itself too seriously. There seems to be a little humor, a little "wink, wink", if you will, with many of these bold pieces, especially those that send a little message (we're looking at you, Stubbs and Wootton and Soludos!). These days, we could use a little bit of cheek and fun, am I right? We've done a little round-up of our favorite pieces and sources for this fun trend, so with that, go forth and embroider it up! 

Tacos are not just for Tuesdays... show your taco love all summer with these awesome little espadrilles. (We also LOVE the winky ones that Caroline and Main had last summer... fingers crossed they'll be back!)

Just because it's maternity, doesn't mean it has to be bland. ASOS is another great (and affordable) source for embroidered pieces. And don't be disappointed if you're not preggo but love this dress- this style and some others come in regular AND maternity... brilliant.
