This autumn, there’s only one fashion trend we’re falling for: luscious, luxurious velvet!
This quintessentially nineties trend has made a definitive comeback this fall, dominating the runways from New York to Paris. The resurgence of velvet has brought about the fabric in just about every type of clothing—from dresses to sneakers—velvet is everywhere. And, if worn well, this very textured material can create an effortlessly chic look for any woman. If done wrong, well…yuck. Luckily, we’re here to give you three super stylish tips so you can rock this luxurious fabric in style.

Velvet is truly an “it-piece” of the season. What has been especially exciting with velvet’s return is that there is a lot of casual clothing interpreted in the luxurious fabric. From sneakers and ballet flats to bomber jackets and jumpsuits, velvet doesn’t have to be set aside solely for formal wear. With the right pieces, it can be worn every day and add some flirty formal fun to a more basic ensemble!
Although velvet is usually synonymous with special occasions, think beyond formal wear and add a touch of glamour to an everyday look with splashes of the fabric in your outfit. A great way to add velvet into your everyday style is by mixing casual elements like denim with the luxe fabric. If you want to wear velvet, but you’re worried about overdoing it, velvet shoes and accessories are a great option. And consider kicking it up a notch with a dramatic hue such as burgundy or cobalt blue. Cropped denim with velvet booties like this pair from Steve Madden is spot-on for the season.
Top your outfit off with another on-trend statement piece and a nod to the nineties (are you a Brenda Walsh or a Kelly Taylor?) with a choker necklace—in velvet—of course!
Office to Cocktails
The velvet blazer is the perfect finishing touch to any outfit, making it feel instantly more luxurious. Pair your blazer with a structured top and a tailored skirt, pants or even a nice pair of skinny jeans. Remember, when wearing velvet, don’t skimp on the details. Accessories such as a contrasting handbag or some understated jewelry like these pearl and crystal ear jacket earrings by Kate Spade are still subtle enough to wear to work and won’t take all the attention away from your velvet statement piece. This is a look that will effortlessly take you from the office to happy hour!
For an all-out glam look try a velvet dress or top and skirt combination like the one above. Velvet is an inherently luxurious fabric, so it won’t take too much effort to dress it up. The lavish and warm fabric will be perfect for all of your upcoming holiday parties throughout the fall and on through winter! Stick to deep hues of navy, red, emerald and black for evening glamour.
Out of all the opulent fabrics that have emerged this season, velvet is by far our favorite. This classic fabric instantly gives off an air of elegance and dresses up the simplest outfits.
