The Latest Trend: Velvet

Certain fabrics lend themselves to particular seasons. Plaid pops up in stores even before the first leaf changes color. Another fabric that comes with the cool weather is velvet! This soft, luxurious fabric is especially popular this year. I would definitely call it the fabric of the season! I just ordered these booties and plan on wearing them all the time!

Typically velvet lends itself to nicer pieces, like dresses and skirts. I love the burn out pattern on this shift dress! This bell sleeve dress would be a great item for upcoming Holiday parties. The draped back on this dress is stunning!

Velvet also works for less dressy occasions. For a date night this mustard top and denim works perfect. You can add a blazer or jacket if its chilly! The off the shoulder trend isn't going anywhere and this velvet take on it makes it Fall and Winter ready. To dress up a tshirt and jeans look, swap out your tshirt for this comfy blush top!

For more versatile pieces I suggest these pants and this midi skirt! The pants are subdued enough to wear to the office with a button down and blazer. Add a fun top, maybe with some embellishment, and the pants transform into a great party/date night outfit. The midi skirt length and grey velvet fabric lend itself to a variety of occasions, work or fun!

If you aren't quite ready to take the plunge into velvet clothing, accessories are an easier way to ease into the trend. I am always look for more flats to add to my collection. These embellished loafers pair well with work pants or your weekend denim. Wear a little black dress to show off the ankle ribbon strap on these heels

Each season new trendy sneakers come out that tempt me to ditch my heels! The rose pattern and velvet fabric make these sneakers look nothing like your running shoes. 

This quilted velvet bag comes in two colors (burgundy/pink here) and is under $50! You don't have to spend a lot to partake in this trend! 

Are you as in love with velvet as I am?
