Fall 2016 Trend Report: Velvet

Fall is just around the corner. Even though the changing colors of leaves and aroma of pumpkin spice lattes, aren’t quite in the air yet, it doesn’t mean the fashion retailers will wait for it!

The fashion industry works a little ahead of the schedule, which means despite the current warm temperatures, we’re already seeing fall/autumn collections in the retail stores.

With the change of every season, there are always those select key styles, we see everyone wearing. This year, too, ‘Velvet’ is the most popular fabric and major theme of Fall.

If you’re looking to add something with a little texture to your wardrobe, a velvet piece/item could be the perfect choice for Fall addition. Whether it be a pair of velvet booties or a velvet top, jacket or dress, velvet is the most stylish fabric of this season you would love to try. Please scroll down for some style inspo:

 

  1. Velvet Tops/Blouses

 

 

2.  Velvet Bottoms

 

 

3.   Velvet Dresses/Jumpsuits

 

 

4.   Velvet Jackets

5.   Velvet Accessories

 

 

6.   Velvet Ethnic wear

 

 

7.   Velvet Footwear

 

For those who aren’t very experimental and would like to play it safe, a velvet dress is the way to go. However, there are a few dos and don’ts to keep in mind when wearing velvet.

 

Dos and Don’ts:

The first is that one item of velvet is enough – you don’t have to pair your velvet dress with velvet leggings and a velvet purse.

2. Second, it can be quite tricky to pull off velvet in lighter shades; so if you want to play safe, it’s best to stick to the deeper tones of various colors.

3. Third, always ensure that your velvet clothes are well ironed. Folds and crimps hinder the actual smoothness and beauty of this fabric, making your clothes look cheap and drab, which of course nobody wants 😉

Would love to know if you are planning to get something ‘Velvety’ this Fall? If yes, what would it be? Love to hear from y’all! 🙂

See you soon in the next post.

Until then…
