After the initial shock of the election outcome, I thought about what has shocked me fashion-wise for the fall season. Velvet is everywhere! This isn’t new, but more fashion pieces are available in this luxurious material. Normally, you can find the usual velvet dress-very popular for holiday parties. The occasional velvet blazer can be spotted here and there in fall and winter, as well.
Most recently, there have been countless fashion pieces shown in velvet that have not been in the forefront before. For instance, velvet shoes have been popping up heavily lately. Designers / brands such as Zara, Calvin Klein, Steve Madden and Kate Spade, to name just a few; all have velvet shoes this fall. The material isn’t exclusive to men or women; everyone can get in on the trend. See link below…
I personally don’t own ONE piece of fashion in Velvet– shocker!!! I’ve always felt the material made me too hot while wearing, just trying it on is enough to make me sweat. However, velvet shoes may be something I choose to add to my wardrobe soon. My husband purchased a brown Bally velvet sneaker last year- one of my favorite pair he owns. I feel velvet adds a regal element to any item and gives great dimension to a look.
Do you have any velvet pieces or have a “Style Jones” for an item? What is your favorite velvet item this season? Please share, like, and comment!
