During a trip to Los Angeles this past February, I paid a visit to Frame Denim to get an idea of the kind of denim trends I could scoop of for Fall. To my surprise, the sales girl implored me to buy a velvet blazer, swearing it was the next hottest item and on everyone’s order. I thought to myself, “Velvet? Really?” but took her word for it. I’m glad I did.
Velvet is one of those trends that seems to fall out of, then return, to popularity and this season, it’s back with a vengeance. If you’re going to invest in one piece this Autumn, make sure it’s in this soft, luxe fabric. There are plenty of options to choose from—I’m seeing velvet on everything from shoes to bomber jackets. The juxtaposition of the luxury fabric on traditionally casual pieces is fun and unexpected, all the makings of good fashion.
Trendsetters like Hailey Baldwin and Kendall Jenner are not waiting for the cool weather, but instead rocking this trend while temps are still soaring.
Though it’s still warm in Texas, you can already wear velvet pieces now as accent pieces, such as velvet booties with shorts or velvet cami dresses with wedges. There is no right or wrong way to rock the trend, just have fun with it, and don’t feel as if you have to wait for the cold to wear it. Dive into the luxe life!
