Trend Alert: Velvet for Spring
One trend that I have been loving this past year is velvet. It’s funny how trends circle back around from the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and beyond. If you asked me a couple years ago, I would’ve never seen myself wearing a dress made entirely of velvet. Now that I have become used to seeing it everywhere, including on the New York runways this Spring, I’m sold. It adds so much texture to an outfit. Velvet is also great when there is just a touch of it on your accessories. I love my velvet choker that I wore in this post and these blush velvet pumps that I recently purchased.
Some trends are fleeting and quickly disappear after a season or two. I have to say that velvet is here to stay for awhile! It was ALL over the runways!! Seriously every show at fashion week had at least a couple velvet pieces. I was in shock but also happy about it! While runway fashion seems unattainable to some, it has a trickle down effect and other designers will be inspired by the pieces shown at fashion week. We’ll be seeing similar items in stores for the next year and beyond.
