The pattern is usually geometric and can be found on the entire surface of the cloth. But it can also be in the middle (usually it’s some form of large ornament) or around the edges (small patterns).
The combination of the basic fabric and pattern is totally dependent on your taste. This season a yellow or golden pattern is trendy on the main textile of brown, white, pink, turquoise, or blue colour. This fascinating look can come with some designs on the fabric in form of lilac and purple colours.

These looks of Guinea cloth styles works perfectly as office wears or if you are going for some specific events.
Guinea brocade fabrics with embroidery will certainly make you stand out. Typically, these textiles have an abundantly embroidered edge and a little embroidery on the rest of the basic fabric. Often fabrics with such embroidery have a wavy edge. It’s very suitable for long dresses and festive blouses. Usually, embroidery can come in form of floral ornament (flowers, leaves, and stems). The threads used for embroidered patterns are different colours from the basic fabric. Usually, it contrasts with the cloth, but it can also be just of another tone of the same colour.
Gold and silver threads are often present in the embroidery. The pattern can be decorated with sequins and rhinestones for especially festive occasions.

In the season 2017, long straight dresses that reach the floor or slightly flared down brocade dresses will be very trendy. You can also sew a long dress that has the "mermaid tail" style from this fabric. You have to do this very carefully. The cut should not break the fabric pattern. For such a dress, it is better to choose a fabric with a small pattern or embroidery. It looks better when the embroidery is placed at just on the edge.
If you sew a dress or blouse from Guinea brocade fabric, be attentive when selecting the cut of the neckline. If the fabric pattern is not so bright and is of a smaller size, you can choose any neckline. But if the ornament is large and contrasting, the cutout should be done either in rectangular or triangular form. The "Angelica" cut type can suit this style well too. If the fabric edge is wavy and has embroidery, you can open your shoulders and make it a straight neckline.
As for suits or other specific styles of outfits, like a skirt and blouse, you can go for one kind of fabric as well as several different kinds. The main thing is to combine colours correctly. For example, you can make it in such a way that the blouse or top is brighter. In this case, choose a Guinea brocade fabric with a large or small pattern according to your preference. It looks better when the skirt has a minimal, inexpressive pattern and not too bright contrasting elements. If you decide to use fabric with shiny ornaments for a skirt, then it is better to sew both the upper and lower part of your attire from the same kind of fabric.
If already have a Guinea brocade blouse in your wardrobe, you can wear a short pencil skirt or stylish jeans with it and just have some fun. We bet you will draw a lot of attention. If you go for a fabric with a more tone-down colour and a barely noticeable pattern, you can sew a skirt and blouse or a small straight dress to the knee or just below the knees. This outfit will be quite appropriate for the office or just hanging out.
