Style Glossary: Appliqué


An ancient needlework technique in which pieces of fabric, embroidery, or other materials are sewn onto a foundation fabric to create designs. This is done through hand or machine stitches. If you recall, Audrina Patridge's green Phillip Lim dress had appliqué detailing around the neck.

Try the technique with this Nicole Miller Embellished Blue Dress ($308, originally $440).
