There’s something magical about velvet. It makes us think of princess dresses in fairy-tales, like the one Snow white was wearing. Or it reminds us of Scarlet O’Hara in ‚Gone with the wind’ wearing her handmade green velvet gown. Velvet is the biggest fabric trend this fall and it screams luxury. Luckily you dont have to spend a lot to get this luxurious look. There are so many options available online that will have you spoilt for choice.
Im wearing this trend in form of this gorgeous wine color velvet skirt. The 90’s are majorly back in fashion, so think a very minimal, very basic and very chic look. I went with this high on drama, high waist skirt with side slit with another trend that followed us into fall – the off shoulder top. A bold wine lip and nude accessories is all it too to complete this look.
Velvet looks amazing in deep colours that associate itself with royalty: wine, burgundy, navy, forest green, black and purple are some color options to try. Truth is this look holds a certain vintage elegance to it, something like fashion guru meets stylish vampire.
While I happened to go for a super-sultry look, you could also pick up a dope bomber/jacket or a sweet top instead. There’s no rule that says in order to wear velvet you have to look like you’re two seconds away from walking the ramp. The key element here is to go for great cuts, very sleek and architectural rather than slouchy, which tend to look cheap in velvet. Go for very good quality fabric, and then it’s up to you whether or not you do an elegant refined vintage inspired style or a more cool-borderline-kitsch-look.
Give your fall winter 2016 wardrobe a velvet touch by wearing just a velvet scarf bound to a loose bow. Yes I’m completely into velvet this season. What about you?
