Desk-Bound Buys: 5 of the Best in Brocade

Stay with us here. We know brocade — that type of fabric so thickly woven with different colour threads that it looks embossed — can be a bit hit-and-miss, but we promise you it's back and better than ever. You only need to look to Kristen Stewart, Jaime King and Alexa Chung to see how to get this trend so right, instead of oh-so wrong. As if those three style-stters weren't proof enough of brocade's comeback, we've also recently spied it  on the New York Fashion Week runway, so you know this is one fashion statement we'll be talking about for a while yet. There's a fine line between tacky and trendy, though, so we've hand-picked our best five brocade buys. Pair them with plainer, more classic pieces in your wardrobe and you're good to go! Click through the gallery to find your fave.
