Velvet’s Touch

Hello lovelies,

As I perused the September issue of In Style, I realized that many of the trends we see each fall season are nothing but updated versions of themselves year after year. So are they trends or are they classics? I will let you decide for yourselves.

One of my personal favorite “trends” this fall is velvet. Seriously, can anyone resist the touch of velvet? It’s moody, bohemian vibe speaks to my soul. I love its warmth and versatility. It’s rich texture can be added in many ways from fashion to home decor.

Add a touch of the orient with a velvet coat like this stunner from Ali Express.  They sell many affordable pieces that won’t break the bank.

 

Accessorize! Add a pop of fall color with this trend via blocked heels or a mini clutch bag.

Romanticize. Elie Saab, the KING of Couture…at least as far as I am concerned… knows just how to manipulate velvet to bring out its rich luster. Oh to be his muse!!

Velvet in the home is elegant. Think of plush pillows or furniture. Randi Garrett shares how to incorporate this look on her website Randi Garrett Design.

Velvet furniture need not be intimidating. It lends an air to taste and individuality. There are many new pieces to be found,  but I find myself drawn to vintage furniture like these gorgeous velvet chairs and stool from the 1950s.
