Damask, brocade, embroidery, velvet, lace, and even foil fabrics are harmonized in jewel tones, rich blacks and anchored by over the top jewelry and embellishments. This trend will transition into winter for the holiday season and will be here for spring/summer 2013 so get familiar with it.
The problem with this trend is if not done correctly it can actually 'age' someone, like me, who is *ahem* over 30.The solution? Mix it up ;) Don't go head to toe in damask or velvet. Balance the look by going demure in one area then increasing the sex appeal in another; actually this is a fundamental style principle if you ask me ;)
Thanks to my friend Petra for introducing me to the website where I saw the skirt that is featured, she's a true style icon.
Thanks for reading everyone! ya'll come back now!
