Don’t discount it for the granny factor — with a modern cut, the winter florals and thicker fabrics that are characteristic of tapestry prints are made for cold-weather comfort. Dolce & Gabbana brought this embroidered look back on our radar during its fall 2012 show, giving the thought-to-be-outdated fabric a romantic facelift on everything from shoes to bodysuits and bags. Intricate needlepoint accessories amp up a basic anything (looking at you, LBD), giving your whole ensemble a charming vintage European feel.
