Soft, Crushed Or Classic: Velvet Is Everywhere For Fall
August 13, 2012
Remember when you were younger and got to wear frilly little dresses for the holidays? Most likely they were made in velvet and every time I see this material, it reminds me of family gatherings and well, childhood. But this fall, the dense fabric gets a sophisticated update thanks to designers like Paul Smith, Topshop Unique, Alberta Feretti, Gucci, and Thomas Tait. While we may be a little older, we can still rock this nostalgia-inducing material in grown-up ways, including tailored threads (think trousers and blazers), form-hugging dresses (it gives our gowns a cool new luxe factor), and accessories (clutches and duh, smoking slippers!). Try your hand at this touch-tempting trend today.
