Designers used elements of Renaissance Europe to create amazing patterns that effortlessly combine an old world and modern feel. I love taking my favorite outfits from the runways and use them as inspiration to make every day looks. If you take a trend such as brocade, adding simple silhouettes and modern touches will keep you looking chic and not overly trendy. In the images above, I only used brocade for one of the items. I then styled other pieces and accessories to enhance the pattern and not compete with it. This is why I love fashion so much, you can take any trend and make it your own!
