Style Series: The Winter seasons latest trend is velvet; are you crushing or cringing?

Winter fashion trends are upon us and one of the latest includes a familiar friend of mine, velvet. I can’t remember the last time I wore velvet as a fashion statement, maybe second grade? Being a dancer for many years allowed me to wear velvet countless times, but as a costume. I was surprised to see velvet making a comeback and I actually think it’s a cute trend for winter. Velvet is soft and comfy and reminds me of  dressing up for the holidays as a child.  I found some cute velvet items I think you might enjoy. If embracing an entire velvet dress isn’t in your closets future, why not try a pair of flats or a bag?  There are also items like the red skirt below that only use velvet as an accent or trim. These  items will allow you to still be trendy without feeling like you are about to perform a ballet routine. 😉

1. Crush Velvet Scoop Neck Dress at Forever 21 -$17.80

2. Elizabeth and James Ruched Velvet Skirt at Net-a-porter.com – $385

    • haha Well I am glad u like a few of the items. I def think velvet is a trend that not everyone will be into, but it could be really cute if styled appropriately!

      Thanks for the comment love!

    • We love it…in moderation of course. Velvet is a great accent, I’d definitely hesitate to wear it as a dress. I kinda really LOVE the blazer and leggings too!

      • I agree! I am not crazy about the entire velvet dress, But I wouldn’t mind it as an accent.

        Thank you for commenting!! 🙂
