Trend Report—Week of 10/2/2015: National Velvet

Velvet apparel is forcing its way out of Prince and Bowie’s closets and into fall fashion, and looks great in a wide range of jewel tones across all product categories. Whether you are daring enough to try flared pants or just want to stick with leggings this fall, velvet is a great way to add an element of texture and dimension to your #FallLook. A crisp tuxedo inspired velvet blazer is a new way to spice up your office wardrobe (and its prolonged AC!) and a velvet kimono is an easy way to look put together for your class at 9am. Wearing velvet with black basics, other jewel tones, or light wash denim are great ways to keep it fresh this October.

If you’re not ready to sport the velvet suit like Elizabeth Olsen, velvet accessories are perfect for welcoming this trend without making a huge commitment in your wardrobe. Velvet shoes are being spotted in a wide range of styles from combat boots to ballet flats and are great against autumn’s pesky surprise showers. I think a little velvet clutch is adds instant lux factor to any date night outfit, and velvet home décor will certainly make house guests think you can actually afford your rent. If you’re looking to go extreme lengths to make sure the velvet trend does not go back underground, cover your Range Rover in velvet like Khloe Kardashian.
