Velvet Crush: How To Wear The Seasons Hottest Trend
Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock or have been avoiding social media, you’ve probably seen that velvet is having a moment. With everything from shoes to handbags to jackets, velvet is in the limelight - and for good reason. This material is as versatile as it is gorgeous.
And the best part about velvet? Everyone can wear it. If you aren’t ready to do the full-on trend, start with small accessories like a crossbody bag. Or start even smaller with a velvet choker in vibrant colors like burgundy, navy, or green.
When you’re ready to go bigger, incorporate velvet shoes into your wardrobe.
These lush shoes have been popping up in literally every type of shoe - from flat to bootie to pump. Depending on how far you want to take the trend, you can try bright colors like blue, fuchsia, or purple. Or, if you’re willing to go a step further, why not try a printed velvet bootie? Floral and leopard print get instantly cooler in velvet.
If you aren’t feeling quite adventurous, try adding black or ivory velvet booties or mules. They are still a step up from the classic suede or leather shoe but in a more muted, understated color.
And don’t just stop at the accessories and shoes - add it to your clothing racks. Velvet tops and bodysuits are an easy entryway to literally wearing the velvet trend. Try a classic button-down in black velvet for an instant outfit upgrade. And if you’re feeling more daring or looking for an upgrade on your typical night-out outfit, go for a velvet tank or bodysuit in sleek blush or navy blue. Pair with black jeans and some killer shoes and you’re good to go!
But we saved the best velvet trend for last - jackets. Velvet jackets are the perfect intro to the velvet trend or the perfect compliment to your current velvet pieces. And we just so happen to have the perfect velvet bomber.
The women’s Velvet Bomber comes in a cool green shade and a sleek camouflage print. The bomber features an over-sized, boyfriend fit (perfect for layering during the winter months) and button closure. We may be biased, but you need this jacket this season. Seriously, everyone will be asking where you got it - and you can say “Members Only.”
