What do you think about this fall velvet trends? Dresses, jumpsuits, skirts, rompers, bags, booties, and much more were covered in this decadent fabric all over the runaways. From Emilio Pucci, to Rebecca Minkoff and Dolce & Gabbana, the velvet in all possible gorgeous colors found a way to embellish the new designs and bring a tint of vintage flair to any fashionista’s wardrobe.
The velvet, while being very flattering and sexy, can actually make you look tired and outdated when styled the wrong way. It’s a very bold fabric that stands out by itself without the need of any embellishments, accessories, or pretentious fabrics. Also, choosing the right color of a velvet piece is very important. The good news are one can’t go wrong with black velvet. My other 2 favorite colors are: dark green and burgundy. I wouldn’t say no to a midnight blue velvet for a glam evening as well.
Here I paired a burgundy velvet pencil skirt with a black velvet baroque design blouse. Black with burgundy…on a velvet canvas…to my opinion it’s a pretty chic statement. I love this black top, as it’s very versatile and has such a strong resemblance with some pieces from the Balmain and H&M Collection. The skirt is great for a daytime or evening. It’s elegance and simplicity at the same time, offer flexibility and sharpness.
“I would prefer to live forever in perfect health, but if I must at some time leave this life, I would like to do so ensconced on a chaise longue, perfumed, wearing a velvet robe and pearl earrings, with a flute of champagne beside me and having just discovered the answer to the last problem in a British cryptic crossword.” (Olivia de Havilland)
Yep, that’s me right there too.
