If you’re attending a wedding and want to wear something comfortable but not too casual, think about an ah-mazing brocade dress. Brocade is commonly made from silk, cotton, polyester and viscose. Featuring a subtle (usually gold) sheen it is generally shaped with transparent prints like florals, paisley, swirls and sometimes abstract. The design was seen in many fashion shows including Vera Wang, Mary Katrantzou, Monique Lhuillier and Alexander McQueen.

This brocade dress is almost a runway highlight and it was clearly inspired with the one as seen at Vera Wang’s spring summer 2013 collection.

The difference: the pattern and the price.
