How to Wear Brocade
If You Have a Large Bust
The safest bet? Wearing brocade below the waist. A definite no-no? Brocade collars or wide lapels, which exaggerate the chest,
says Megan Evans, the founder of the Well Coiffed Closet, a personal-shopping service in New York City.
The Head-to-Toe Look
Don’t be afraid to mix and match patterned accessories with brocade. Just stay in the same color family and vary the scale.
