As summer comes to a roaring end, we’re saying goodbye to silk slips and off the shoulder minis! In anticipation of the crisp fall season, were on the hunt for soft, lush, and luxurious fabrics that will keep us warm and on trend. Having made appearances at Oscar de la Renta, Derek Lam and LaQuan Smith’s catwalks, velvet is this seasons most coveted example. Scroll through to see the posh ways we will be styling this falls most beloved trend.
Dip your toes into the new trend that is velvet footwear. As seen on Hollywood IT girl Kendal Jenner and others alike, this swanky bootie is the perfect counterpoint to bold prints and vibrant colours.
Velvet Power Suiting
There are plenty of ways to wear this rich fabric this season, but one of my personal favourites is the velvet power suit. Channeling the fabrics innate beginnings, a velvet power suit is much like a royal cloak, and will make anyone wearing it feel like a seventieth century queen.
As sumptuous as this fabric is, if used incorrectly it can be very overwhelming. To avoid this, pair a simple outfit with a rich velvet clutch. This will be the subtle addition that gives your outfit the ultimate luxe look.
