How to Get the Velvet Trend Right


Velvet: Either you have some or you want some. I was reintroduced to the fabric last season and was immediately transported to the days of Limited Too when I had a black velvet short-sleeve turtleneck (thank you, Mom) and wore it to a school dance. We’ve come a long way since then! Now velvet is truly the fabric of our elegant lives.

From the office to your next soiree, let this serve as style inspiration in your velvet pursuit this season.

OK, I’m biased, but this color is everything! And the same style comes in five other colors. It adds instant polish to any look, whether you’re heading to the office or to grab a beverage with friends.

I love bringing back old Hollywood glamour and making it modern. A printed turban adds character, whereas a solid cover offers more versatility. If you have short hair, consider wearing a sparkly stud or drop earrings for some extra pizazz.

A velvet cigarette pant is sleek, while a draped pant offers luxurious comfort. Are you tall? Opt for a wide leg variation and if you really want to make a statement, choose a bold color.
