TREND ALERT: VELVET

Love it or hate it, velvet is back! And it’s back with a bang! Spotted on the catwalk at Fendi, Dries Van Noten, Gucci and Prada during fashion week. This sumptuous and decadent fabric which is a  winter staple is now a summer must-have! Velvet in summer is now a thing so join the pack.

I’ve collected the best look to take inspiration from to rock this trend!

We know the velvet fabric can be ‘loud’, tone it down by pairing it with basic top and denim.

 Velvet material tend to add extra vibrance to any colour which perfectly worked with this gown Khloe Kardashian wore at the Oscar’s after party. If I could find one, I’d definitely wear it to the upcoming Cosmo Awards.

Be still my beating heart. This Roberto Cavalli Suit worn by Emily Ratajkowski for the Women In Film Cocktail party is to die for.

Okay okay, don’t be quick to judge, the Kardashian loves velvet and if they look this good, I can mention them twice on my page right?

It’s always safe this way.

Upon learning that  it’s the new trend, out of curiosity, called my mom and asked her to raid my closet back home and check if I happen to have any velvet clothing. She did find a pink two-piece tracksuit from Juicy Couture  I own since I was 16 years old, I could wear it again though I doubt it would fit.

Do you own any velvet piece of clothing, how do you plan to wear it?
