How to Wear Brocade
If You Have a Tummy
Be careful about wearing shiny, attention-getting brocade around the stomach. The trick is to opt for silhouettes that are
not too loose or too lean. Peplums, sheath dresses, and cropped jackets highlight the middle in a bad way.
The Head-to-Toe Look
The structured shape of this shift stands away from the body, skimming over the midsection. Metallic shoes and jewelry tie
together the bold palette.
