Who doesn’t love soft, lush, warm things?
That’s perhaps why velvet is dominating the Fall and Winter season, in everything from clothing, to accessories, to lingerie! Once considered a fabric of wealth and status, velvet has saturated every type of market so you can live in the luxury of softness overload.
A touch of velvet is perfect for the holidays, whether it be as part of your outfit or for a pretty gift for the fashionista in your life. When you want a touch of high fashion fabric or want something truly dynamic to splash up your wardrobe, a cool velvet top or dress will do the trick. Playing with your accessories helps to dress it up or dress it down, but you definitely don’t need much pizazz with velvet as the star of the show.
Fresh off the runways, celebs have been seen out and about at the fanciest events or running around town in velvet. Award shows all year round have seen a touch of velvet here and there, starting with Evan Rachel Wood’s amazing Altuzzara suit at the SAG Awards. Olivia Palermo even experimented with combining velvet pants with velvet shoes and nailed it. The ever-fashionable Kendall Jenner opted for bright colored velvet while in London, proving to us why we all need light colored velvet in our closet.
If you desire the softness of velvet closer to your skin, velvet is seeping into the lingerie market at a high calibre. A full velvet piece such as the Velvet Vixen Bodysuit from Mapale is a sexy element for a romantic night in. Alternatively, you can create an amazing #OOTD with the velvet bodysuit paired with a cute skirt, some high waisted trousers, or even some cool jeans.
