In seasons past, "embellished" has meant big, bold, and — more often than not — really, really sparkly. But, with brands like Fendi and Proenza Schouler abandoning in-your-face adornment for a more subtle interpretation of the term, we’re seeing fashion evolve in real time. The new embellishment is about contrasting details in fabric and finish and color and cut — and we’ve got your crash course.
Our fearless staff took the trend for a spin. And, cause sharing is caring, we scoured Target to find every piece you need to do embellished your way.
