How To Wear Velvet This Fall

Just in case you missed the memo, velvet is sooo hot right now.

Thankfully, this time around the velvet craze is a chic as it can be. Unfortunately with this fabric, it can be a fine line between high fashion and total disaster. So, I put up this small guide to help you rock this trend like a complete fashion guru!

Stick to one velvet item per outfit. Whether it’s a jacket, a pair of boots or even a cross-body bag, let it be the center of attention.

Stay away from cheap looking fabric. You don’t have to splurge to look like a million bucks. Even on a budget, you can still find fabrics that look smart. It’s definitely not a price issue.

 

Opt for darker colors. Especially with more affordable clothing. Even in a dark color, velvet is a rather flashy fabric. If you choose a yellow jacket it’s gonna look tacky and stand out more. Colors such as burgundy, navy, deep purple, grey and black will make the fabric look more luxurious.

Velvet is the fabric of the season. However you choose to wear it, why not why not look elegant while styling it?

      I can be but if it’s only an accent to a rather simple outfit it will almost always look elegant!

    Love the colour of your velvet jacket! 🙂 I love how some of the Winter styles have hit the shops early this year as I normally find Autumn trends a little bland. Great styling! Jaz X
