Seriously, who can resist the allure of velvet? It's a fabric of nobility and royalty. It boasts a dangerous streak, with connections to glam rock and nighttime seduction. And now, the smooth, luxurious material has a wonderfully been re-introduced as the "it" fabric to wear and I have a feeling it's gonna stay here for a while.
Basically, velvet can assume many personalities. It can go from being sexy by wearing a jumpsuit or a wrap around dress to a daytime look by adding a blazer with your favourite pair of jeans and tee.
You will find this trend in many different items just as clothes, bags, shoes; just name it and it comes in velvet! I love how bold all the colours are especially the jewel tones (those are my fav!).
I'm not going to lie to you but this is a difficult trend to pull off if you aren't super skinny. Velvet usually adds weight to your frame because it's a very bulky fabric. But, we are fortunate because you will find that many of the stores carry different types of velvet; from the traditional, bulky material to soft, floaty and thinner velvet. If you are afraid of adding more bulk to your frame, opt for the thinner material and for dresses look for wrap dresses that have a little ruching built in so it can hide some flaws (we all have them!). Structured velvet that accentuates your frame is the best for any body type; don't let it over power you!
If you aren't ready to go all the way with Velvet then try opting for velvet booties or a velvet bag to compliment your outfit. The choices are endless but remember to keep it minimal!
I have always loved velvet so I'm so happy to see it back in fashion. Velvet always adds a little bit of 'sexy' to any outfit and can elevate any look. I've added some fashion inspo below to encourage you to go buy something in this very trending fabric!
