Awww yummy velvet! As you know, I’m no stranger to velvet. I love velvet – beautiful rich deep colors for fall.
Velvet cakes, velvet dresses, velvet slippers… all equally delicious! This texture is sublime for fall. It’s soft, glimmers when the light touches it, and feels holiday ready. I love mixing velvet with stronger textures like leather (the tall boots), and pairing it with similar soft textures like sheer pieces (the turtleneck) and velvet accessories (the box bag). It’s the harmonious combination of feminine with masculine elements that I really love.
Sharing my obsession of velvet with you today. From dresses to blazers to bags, velvet can be worn as a statement or as an accent piece. If you are at the beginning of your velvet love affair, a great item to start with is this mini velvet bag. It’s great with an evening dress and also great styled as a weekend look with a slouchy sweater and high rise straight jeans.
