A big trend for F/W’17, velvet is not going anywhere this season. Traditionally the kind of statement look reserved for evening – particularly in winter, velvet is rearing its plush head in everything from easy, flirty statement tops to party looks, and boots and jackets. And while we’re all about a head-turning velvet after-hours look, new season velvet works for day, too, in simple separates and luxe leisurewear. Paired back with leathers, silks, and denim, velvet doesn’t need to be full on – this seriously soft fabric is surprisingly flattering, comfortable, and more wearable than you might imagine.
If you’re brave enough to try the trend, we show you how to style it.
