Styling Tips: 3 Ways to Wear Brocade
If you’re anything like us, you like to stay on top of trends, and you bleed style and glamour. A great way to do this (without breaking the bank) is by transforming old looks into current ones. Brocade is one of those ultra-flattering trends that work with whatever is already in your closet. Don’t believe us? Here are three ways to style it this season…
WEARING THE PANTS
WHY WE LOVE THESE>> Adding a pair of brocade pants is probably the easiest way to give any top an on-trend twist.
HOW TO STYLE THEM>> If you wear them like jeans, the outfit possibilities are endless. We’re talking button up blouses for day, sequin tops for night, and even a light tee would look killer over these!
THE SHOE>> A simple black pump. You have a lot going on—balance it.
WHY WE LOVE THIS LOOK>> We love, love, love leather. It gives brocade a darkly glamorous edge.
HOW TO STYLE IT>> You must have a leather jacket in your closet somewhere. If you don’t, get to it! It’s a worthwhile investment piece. Toss a leather jacket over a brocade dress and you have yourself an outfit!
THE SHOE>> A black bootie or neutral pump.
THE FANCY SUIT
WHY WE LOVE THIS LOOK>> Give dresses a break and go for suiting pieces that are perfect for meeting the parents or attending an office party.
HOW TO STYLE IT>> Put together a matching suit by pairing it with a black cami and black tights. You can also pair a brocade top with a pair of shiny black pants. Mix and match. Repeat.
THE SHOE>> We’re can’t stress the importance of a classic black pump enough! But you can do a silver or gold heel for a more festive look.
