Luxury. Upper class. Elite. Nobility.
This beloved fabrication (as velvet describes the structure of fabric rather than the fiber) will always bring to mind its origin as a luxurious option only for the wealthiest and most noble buyers. Velvet has become more and more accessible over the decades, from gowns and shawls of the 20’s, to floral printed pantsuits on the 70’s, to bell-bottoms in the 80s, and now today… Arguably the most important fabric trend of the season, velvet is now in full force from the runway to the streets, from outerwear and formal wear, to handbags and shoes, to the sporty street style so synonymous with our current era.
My two (so far 😇) velvet purchases for this fall are a cropped, black velvet tee and black velvet jogger pants.
Just letting that resonate a little longer. Velvet had come a long way, and I’m thrilled that I can add such wearable pieces into my everyday wardrobe. Here are the looks I’ve styled my new velvet pieces with so far along with links to get similar items.
