Summer trends re-imagine classic looks

Embroidery: A beautiful detail to accentuate tops, shoes, jeans, and even backpacks, embroidery of all kinds has become the latest craze of the summer. Ranging from pearls and diamonds to hand-stitched flowers and intricate stitches of different designs, embroidery adds the perfect amount of simplistic beauty to any item.
