How to embrace the velvet trend for fall and winterOctober 12, 2017
Velvet has made its way back into the spotlight for the fall and winter seasons. You may already have velvet in your closet so get out those chic dresses and pants and belts and get them back into your wardrobe rotation.
Velvet is beautiful. A velvet top or accent piece can really dress up an outfit. It oozes luxury and adds texture and dimension to your look. It provides a little extra flair to a basic black skirt or pants, but on its own the fabric can add a fun or bold look to the darker jewel tones of fall and winter pieces.
Of course if you already tossed all your beloved velvet because you thought there was no way you’d be seeing velvet back in the limelight, tons of designers are making fabulous pieces that you can add to your fall and winter repertoire.
Wide-leg pants and skirts in a variety of cuts can all be found in velvet this season.

Pairing a short-sleeved velvet blouse with a blazer or a sweater is a quick way to dress up jeans and give a casual look a chic feel. And not all velvet has to be dark this season! Blush is very popular and can be paired with navy and maroon to give a more fall-ish feel. And you know I love a good-oversized shirt, darlings, so consider a velvet tunic as an alternative to a blouse! You can pair it with tighter fitting jeans or even leggings or tights!
