Brocade is a beautiful thick fabric with interwoven patterns, giving it a richness that printed fabrics don’t often have and usually features different colour threads that almost looked embossed. Since it is such a thick fabric it can sometimes be a challenge to wear and depending on the style and cut can be a hit and miss. I’ve been searching for that perfect skater skirt for a while now, never seeming to find one that looks great on me, it usually adds extra weight in places I don’t want it to. This amazing shimmery, gold, brocade skater skirt from Smart Set has just the right amount of elegances, shines and texture that can easily be taken from day to night this holiday season. I went for a casual yet chic look today by pairing it with a chambray shirt and flat studded suede booties, but can easily dress it up for a night on the town by adding a black or white blouse to it and a little more accessories.
