The art of embroidering clothing dates back to ancient Greece and has been practiced globally ever since. And although all trends
are sometimes not as good the second (or third, or fourth) time around, embroidered
details just keep getting better and better. This summer we're seeing so many new and noteworthy needlework items that are destined to bring a little artisanal flair to your classic summer style. Ahead you'll find the most colorfully detailed accessories, footwear, and fashion
featuring the tried-and-true needlepoint craft.

Mango Embroidery Snake-Effect Bag ($60):
The only thing better than faux snakeskin is embroidered
faux snakeskin. Especially when it's a crossbody bag *with* a polished chain strap.
