Soft and luxurious, it’s easy to have a crush on velvet. This fabrication has gone in and out of style for years, but as always in the cyclical nature of fashion, what’s old is new again. Velvet has become very relevant in the fashion world, being an integral part of many designers’ fall and holiday collections. From shirts to accessories to shoes, this material exists today on every imaginable article of clothing and accessory. It feels luxurious and regal and is as comfortable as wearing a sweatsuit (but lets keep those velour Juicy Couture tracksuits in the past- where they belong). In jewel tones, Velvet is perfect for a fall or winter look, and can be either dressed-up or down. Try a matching jacket and pants set worn with a white silk blouse and of-the-moment block-heel loafers…You will feel like you never changed out of your pajamas. Velvet trousers with booties and a sweater is a no-brainer, professional look. For warmer, transitional months, a velvet blazer looks casual-chic paired with jean shorts and sneakers. Bags and shoes are an easy way to register the trend, without making a full commitment. If this trend doesn’t stick around for long this time, it will definitely be in rotation again in the near future, so an investment today is not a bad idea!
