How to wear the Most Popular Fabric of Fall 2016- Velvet

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.

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.

Truth is this look holds a certain vintage elegance to it, something like fashion guru meets stylish vampire.

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.
