Brocade was all over the shops last year, and went perfectly with our hankering for '60s influences and metallics. All these trends are still big news, but how do you wear last season's brocade without looking too retro or fusty?
Teaming the brocade jacket with simple sporty monochrome items like the skirt, the canvas pumps and the t-shirt. Reinforce the tough chic look with the metallic tote, the black stripes add to the sporty feel. A chunky metallic bangle adds even more sparkle for an outfit that will easily take you from work to club. See after the jump for full product links.
