Break Out The Brocade!

An explosion of colour at Winter should be an essential fashion trend every year. I mean how can wearing only black and grey in the darker months bring a smile to our faces?
Don't get me wrong, I'm a big fan of dark colours, I wear them right through the year but here at Dirty Fabulous HQ we also wear bold colours the year round, maybe even more so during the Winter months.
I'm sure (not sure) it's been proven somewhere that bright colours makes you happy! At the very least you should give it a try and see for yourself.
The Fall/Winter 2017 runways were jammed packed with daring prints and glossy, rich tones. Gucci and Erdem in particular knocked it out of the park!
These bold brocades and embroidered fabrics are nothing new. They were huge in the 50's and 60's and were often worn to the most fanciest of occasions, they aren't just for soft furnishings you know!
Take some inspiration from the new and old:
