Jacquard refers to the process of creating intricately woven patterns in fabric. It doesn’t matter if you’re making flowers, squares or portraits of your favorite pet — it’s the process that makes something jacquard or not. I love jacquards, especially for evening wear, because they typically have a bit of weight and heft to them, which helps smooth the lines of a silhouette. With that in mind, we’ve picked ten of the best jacquard skirts around. Dress ‘em up with a silk shirt or down with a chambray, take your pick!

We’ve been big fans of Tracy Reese for a long time. Her dresses are girly, pretty and the epitome of feminine charm. So we were especially thrilled to learn she’d be doing a capsule collection for Anthropologie. Reese’s seven-piece collection is part of Anthro’s Made In Kind series, where the company teams up with lesser-known and smaller design houses to create limited collaborations. Check out Reese’s designs in the slideshow above!

Feral Childe is the creation of bicoastal design team Moriah Carlson and Alice Wu. They make simple, comfortable clothing in amazing fabrications, often creating clothes out of their collaborative drawings. You might remember them from a fairly recent kerfuffle with Forever 21, after the chain store ripped off a rather unique pattern the brand made. But you should also know them because they make cool, totally sustainable and locally produced clothing. They have a “waste not, want not” ideology about their company, donating any scrap materials to local design schools for use, and they’re totally transparent, making sourcing and production information available to any customer who requests it. We really love their aesthetic, too. Check out some of our favorite looks above!
