Never thought I’d say it but maybe Kim Kardashian at the 2013 Met Gala was on to something? You may remember that her floral Givenchy gown, which she wore to the event while she was pregnant with North, was the subject of many memes, with people comparing the fabric of her look to the upholstery of a sofa. In 2019, she recalled that she “cried all the way home” after seeing them, but I think we all owe her a collective apology about that specific incident. She was simply ahead of her time because it’s *actually* a serious 2021 trend.

Yes, you head correctly, folks: Looking like a couch or tapestry or drape or tablecloth is encouraged and is in vogue for the upcoming colder months. Just look at these Fall/Winter 2021/2022 collections for inspiration:

Basically, luxe and intricate prints featuring florals, paisleys, and geometric designs that have an upholstery-like aesthetic to them are IN. The rich hues and thicker textiles make sense for the cooler temperatures, and there are so many ways you can incorporate the trend into your look with shirts, dresses, bags, headbands, and shoes. If you’re super into interiors and want to look like you could blend into the wallpaper/chaises/drapery at Versailles (ahem, see below), this is definitely the trend for you.

Even handmade tapestry corsets are all over Etsy, and brands like Miaou and Staud have similar styles, too. Then there’s Brooklyn-based designer Kristin Mallison, who makes her corset tops from vintage upholstery and antique tapestries sourced from all over the world. (They’re seriously the most gorgeous pieces, wow.)

To get in on it for yourself, you’ll want to keep an eye on items with fabrics like brocade and jacquard, but we also shopped specific pieces out for you below to make things a lil easier. Now you can take your obsession with ornate wallpaper and vintage furniture to a whole new level with your ‘fits this season.
