12 Fancy-Pants Brocade Pieces That'll Make You Feel Like Royalty

The holidays are finally over, but now that the aftermath is taking shape in the form of credit-card bills, it’s hard to pull ourselves out of this wintertime slump. And, while we’re dying to pre-order pieces from our favorite Spring '13 lookbooks (hello, Raoul!), we're just not ready to wear pastel-colored frocks quite yet. Because those bland pullovers aren’t going to soothe your cabin fever, it’s up to our favorite luxe fabric — brocade — to do the heavy lifting.
The shuttle-woven material, which often boasts a metallic sheen, only looks super-expensive, and because there’s no shortage of brocade options in of-the-moment silhouettes, we can take our pick at any price (no additional debt necessary). So, no matter your budget, we rounded up a dozen unfussy brocade pieces that are perfect for mixing textures to your heart’s delight.
