Brocade goes a long way

Nothing welcomes fall better than the luscious palette and texture of a memorable jacquard brocade look. Whether you go for the unexpected playful version (left) or for the elegant upscale version (right), brocade is a beautiful way to add interest to your wardrobe. The metallic and repetitive patterns mixed in with its classic floral ways, make it a current must-have that is both opulent and daring. Include in your season's palette: nudes, taupe, browns / black, grays, gold and the color of the season: oxblood or aubergine and make it an autumn staple. Color blocking in the accessories is a great option for including additional touches of color to the mix without shifting the focus off the brocade and integrating the entire look.
