Now that it’s officially fall, it’s time to break out the fall wardrobe. One of the season’s biggest trends is velvet – in fact, it’s been one of falls biggest trends for a few years. But how do you wear it without looking like an imitation Hugh Hefner? (Unless that’s what you’re going for, then by all means – go for it!).
Here are 6 ways to wear velvet this fall.
A Velvet Tux
Attending a fall or winter wedding? A velvet tux is not only trend-appropriate but will make you look extra-dapper. Try it in unexpected colors like off-white, sand, or pale green.
A Velvet Bomber Jacket
What better way to sport the luxe fabric than with a coat? A velvet bomber is the perfect way to wear this trend without being too obnoxious or loud. Check out the new Members Only Velvet Bomber here.
A Velvet Sweatshirt
For sportswear that isn’t really sportswear, try a cozy velvet sweatshirt. Wear one with banded cuffs on the wrists and waist with a longer t-shirt and baggy jeans.
A Velvet Suit (with Sheen)
This look definitely requires some swagger, but we have faith you can pull it off. Start with black – complete with a ripped, vintage black tee underneath – and work your way up to louder colors.
A Velvet Party Jacket
Stand out in that holiday party by donning a velvet blazer. For bonus points, pick a party jacket in a can’t-miss hue like rich navy or emerald green.
If a full velvet suit isn’t your speed and a velvet bomber jacket is just a bit too showy for you, take baby steps with velvet trousers. Try them in a slim-cut with a sleek shirt.
No need to stick to the same old fall trends year after year. Why not switch it up and add some velvet to your fall wardrobe?
