Tapestry

Maybe it's because I like being warm, being prone to migraines when exposed to cold, but I have a thing for thick, heavy fabrics. Consequently, I am quite liking this whole tapestry thing - the muted colours, heaviness, the texture, the slightly pixellated patterns.


When writing this post, most of what I had in mind was dresses, but I've found tapestry bags, shoes, jackets and even waistcoats. Flowers are pretty, but the texture of tapestry I think really adds something to it. And, all these jewel tones and looking very stylishly carpet/curtain-like is reminding me of Dolly Kei.

When wearing this trend, let the tapestry do the talking, and match it with wallpaper and carpet colours which are warm and deep in colour, but also not too saturated as not to overwhelm the tapestry. Dark greens, garnet reds and tan browns are common colours which are dark enough to be the base colour of your outfit.

Your styling doesn't have to be complicated - try a tapestry dress with opaque wine-coloured tights,
tied together with black hat and heels.

    1. It's a bit silly when the fabric is just printed with a tapestry-textured pattern - I'd rather the fabric be proper thick heavy tapestry xD

  2. I really like your styling ideas since I will be styling a tapestry coat this weekend actually. So definitely some good points in here.
