THE NEW RULES OF VELVET

Thankfully, the old rules for wearing velvet no longer apply! Velvet has historically been of the most luxurious fabrics available, worn for more elegant occasions, with most of the silhouettes being quite formal. Traditionally, the fabric has lent itself better to darker and richer color tones, limiting it’s potential for wear during the daytime or during warmer periods. Approaching Fall, I have been excited to find velvet pieces that appear to break all of those rules! These new items are bold, modern, and seasonally versatile – perfect for ‘wear now’ as well as the transitional time period into Fall. I am loving the softer jewel tones available and all the feminine touches like oversize bows, exaggerated pleats, wide legs, and high rises. These colors and details keep things more casual, affording you the right to wear your velvet finds on so many more warmer weather occasions! When the weather does finally cool, you can simply layer underneath with high socks or tights, or over top with your favorite tonal or neutral outerwear pieces.
