fashion TREND ALERT: Velvet (Part I)

For instant elegance, slip into something velvet; you will love how this trend instantly elevates your style with its unique texture and delicate fabric. Velvet was seen featured in a midnight color theme as it made its presence down the runway. From skirts and dresses to capes and blazers, velvet made its mark. You can create a more casual ensemble and slide on a velvet blazer as inspired by Alexander Wang’s collection. This comfortably sophisticated option will pair wonderfully with tights and shorts or a classic pair of denim jeans to keep you warm as the cold weather takes over. For your next date night or winter party extravaganza, slip into a black velvet dress similar to the Brock collection where a variety of velvet dresses were captivating the audience at fashion week. Although the darker midnight color palette took over the featured velvet trend, don’t be afraid to try velvet with a splash of color, such as blush or mauve. How will you incorporate velvet into your look this season?
