No you are not seeing things, velvet is back again as a HUGE fall and winter trend. We saw this craze emerge in a big way last year, and it is back and better than ever! It took me a while to jump on board with this style, but I am happy I finally did.
This look comes in every color and shape imaginable. You could rock velvet head to toe if you wanted to! I opted for a short sleeve wrap dress (who wouldn’t want to nail two trends in one?). The deeper color makes it perfect for a night out or a holiday dress. The length and flared sleeves give the heavier fabric a little more flounce and doesn’t weigh me down This dress is the perfect balance of hard and soft, I never want to take it off.
Strive to find colorful velvet pieces to keep your outfit interesting. This luxurious look reaches its full potential in cobalt blue or a mustard yellow. A bold color will allow you to stand out in a crowd. You want all eyes on you after all, am I right? You should have no problem finding your ideal velvet crush in stores right now, as if you needed another reason to go shopping.
If this trend makes you a bit nervous, start small. A pair of velvet shoes will score you more compliments than you will know what to do with. Shoes can make or break an outfit and velvet ones will certainly be a winner. You can rock this style no matter what your go-to footwear may be. Try a soft sneaker or a sky-high stiletto in this texture, either way you will look remarkable.
This comfy and chic as can be trend be will keep you on the nice(ly dressed) list this year. What are your thoughts on this look? Let me know in the comment section and make sure to check out all my top picks linked down below.
