The Velvet Touch

As Autumn looms before us, there’s only one trend we will all be falling for: Velvet. The quintessentially 90s trend has made a definitive comeback this fall, dominating the runways.Designers can’t seem to get enough of velvet’s rich look this season showcasing the luxe fabric on dresses and suiting — even track suiting — making it the favored texture of the season.

For a casual look why not pair velvet pants with a leather jacket. The combination of the two contrasting fabrics look great together. Plus, you’re sure to stay super warm in velvet and leather on those cold winter days.  For a more formal velvet look I would recommend a velvet dress. The velvet will have you looking like the epitome of luxury.

Let’s be honest, who can resist the allure of velvet? It’s a fabric of nobility and royalty, boasting a dangerous streak, with connections to glam rock and nighttime seduction. And now the luxurious material has a wonderfully arty-eccentric offbeat side.

Now let’s go shopping.
