Velvet adorned many a runway for Fall 16 and I'm sure you've seen it popping up in all of the stores. I have a lot of friends who insist that it should be left where it belongs "In the 90's!" But I'm afraid the 90s are BACK people!!! Don't worry I'm not going to suggest you dig out that velvet bodysuit, we all owned (although I still love mine), but I am going to ask you give velvet another go. It really is all about how you style it I promise!
Style Tip 1: Accessorise
A good rule to embrace for most trends that seem a little intimidating is to try it out with a shoe or bag. It's a great way to freshen up your wardrobe and update a look without going the whole hog.
Style Tip 2:
Let the velvet be the statement piece.
Don't style velvet with velvet (the exception here is a pant suit). But welcome other textures, prints, lace, satin, denim, shearling, suede, fur...
