It seems that we're introduced to a new shoe trend every few months, with some proving more out of the box than others (yes, we're looking at you, PVC). And while having all of these updated options isn't anything to complain about, we'd argue that there are still plenty of ways to to make a classic feel fresh and special, too.
Take embroidered heels, for example. The sewn on detailing adds a fun, unexpected touch to a shoe style that has been around for what feels like a billion years. Whether heels are required as part of your office dress code, or you're too dedicated to Carrie Bradshaw's legacy to not have them in rotation at least once a week, picking up a pair of embroidered heels is the perfect way to dabble in a trendy option without moving out of your comfort zone. They're especially good for spring and summer time — much of the embroidering is generally some type of floral motif — and they're thankfully not a hard style to come by, either. You'll have an easy time tracking down a style you like at varying price points and heel heights, with everyone from Nine West to Gianvito Rossi getting in on the action.
So without further ado, click through the gallery below for 12 pairs of embroidered heels that'll work for just about any situation your find yourself in this summer.
