Welcome to the Velvet Renaissance. You’re gonna love it.
Velvet is undoubtedly one of the most luxurious materials available in the market, and this year, it created quite an impact on the runways, adding a touch of fluidity to already feminine silhouettes.
It looks amazing in deep colours such as red, blue, green and black. Now while a velvet dress or skirt certainly makes for a high-impact look. If layered over a turtleneck, a velvet blazer can look uber chic. Floral-embroidered velvet pants would elevate the most basic of cashmere sweater.
The only down side being that it tends to look so old, as if it still holds within it the scent and smell of a 100 years old story a once young woman lived.
Whether it’s a well-cut dress or pants and a top, here’s are some ideas on how should be wearing velvet this season.
