Here we are at the beginning of the joyful December, making holiday plans and dreaming of sparkles…and velvet! Allanah Myles’ “Black Velvet” 1990’s hit comes to my mind and I cannot help but let myself taken by the magic of this opulent luxury.
The velvet, this sumptuous fabric used to be available only to the nobles and royalty. Here we are in 2015 witnessing the revival of the wonderful velvet and its adamant style. I absolutely adore this decadent fabric, its sexiness and soft touch. I am beyond thrilled to see it on the runaways this year. A pretty long time, the velvet was in the shadow of the fashion world, but this year you literally can see it popping up everywhere.
I could’t resist to this amazing green H&M velvet jacket as it took me immediately to the “Gone with the wind” world. It reminded me so vividly of the joyous Scarlet O’Hara. Do you remember that green velvet dress that she made out of her curtains? I will never forget that scene and I remember how much it impressed me. I was just 5 at the time I watched the movie for the first time. If you take a closer look at this jacket it really looks like the details have been inspired from the magnificent Scarlet’s design. Besides, the rich green tone is so fabulous and glamorous. Just perfect for the holiday season!
It can be a little bit tricky to style this already enchanting fabric because a faux-pas can make you instantly look like you’ve come from your grandma’s closet, that’s why keeping it simple will make it fashionable and stylish.
