Once upon a time, the fashion world met a folky patchwork of florals, quilting, tapestry, beading, fur, embroidery and appliqué, and they all lived happily ever after. Sound unlikely? It’s one of the biggest style stories of the year. The folk trend takes its cue from all things handcrafted and homespun — think a vibrantly decorated maxi skirt, a blanket overcoat with a faux-fur collar, or a warm knit adorned with animal motifs. With its emphasis on rich color and texture, it’s the perfect look to cozy up with on cold winter days.
