Chic Neutral Broderie

Elegant, classic, and feminine, the broderie anglaise dress can go casual when teamed with a pair of flat mules, just like it can become dressy when you pair it with high heels and a clutch like the Duchess of Cambridge, who loves to wear this cutout lace during spring and summer.
