The return of velvet, although inevitable, still took us by surprise, simply because it did not necessarily associate with the festive seasons and goth subcultures, but with a certain casual revolution. Although there are still elements of luxury, styling the new trend allows for more color and versatility while radiating a feminine influence. This trend also departs from the common knowledge that the fabric is reserved primarily for the glam and glitz of the night. Instead it acknowledges its suitability for daylight hours.
There are numerous ways to style the velvet trend that are uncomplicated and far from overwhelming. My favorite velvet modes usually follow a style that is transitional, easy, and with a little bit of flashback.
You can pair a velvet jacket for example with your go-to staples like a perfect finishing touch. You can drape it over your shoulders, and you instantly invent a city chic look.
