You are one step ahead of chokers, you really want to try this trend on but want to be safe. So velvet bags are just for this!Bags are one of the biggest players on our style and since it’s also velvet this fall; who doesn’t want to have more luxurious look? Whether you prefer big or small, cross body or clutch, you are free to choice any color you want.
Boots, pumps, flats, loafers, slippers.. The strongest area of velvet this season is definitely shoes. Tons of choices to go for this fall and it is safer & easier to style as well. You can pair flats with your dresses or boots with your crop jeans & basic tops. If you want to go for pumps, combine it with your tights and mini skirts. Keep in mind that velvet shoe is already a statement piece by itself, so it is always better to complete look with more casual and minimalistic touch.
Blazers are big lifesavers especially during workdays. They can match your pants, dresses, skirts or jeans. You can still stick to the rules by only switching your regular blazer with velvet one.
If you are looking for something more casual, velvet bombers are just for you! Combine it with your tees, jeans and sneakers; you are so ready and trendy.
During fashion week, streets were full of velvet dress, long, short, wrap or basic V-neck layered with tees. If it’s a casual day or night out with friends, you can match it with your flats or sneakers (thankfully they are still trendy). If there is a special occasion, long wrap versions are so chic and stylish, and you can combine them with pumps or kitten heels.
Just like for other pieces, in pants, different shapes can be found to catch up with velvet trend. You can combine skinny pants with your blazers and shirt, culottes with your oversized knits or flared ones with your high heels and fitted tops.
If you are so into velvet and you believe you are ready for head to toe, than suits are great for you. Just like you can wear blazer and bottom together, you can also match them with different tops and bottom as well to have more option with two statement pieces. If you want to try this style for a night out or evening occasion, you should prefer more fitted cut and match is with a pair of high heels.
You may also want to have more casual but yet stylish look; loose shape is perfect to match with flats, boots or sneakers. No matter which piece you choose, be ready to have all the eyes on you: because the key for every look is not to be afraid of bold colors.
