Has anyone else been noticing an unusual amount of velvet on the runways lately?
You must have seen during the fashion week for fall/winter 2016 that velvets were spotted ten too many times (Definitely not in a bad way). Did that give you ideas? All your favorite stores are carrying this trend, won’t you jump on the bandwagon? Or is this financial crisis holding you back too?
Knowing who I am I’ll probably join this train by the time it’s too late and leave myself with a closet full of velvets and nothing to wear because all the trendy bloggers would be sporting another one of these style comebacks.
But then again, the history of velvet shows that it was never really gone, started since the Renaissance period, dresses were made out of it in the 1920s, continued in the 1950s, made several impressions in the 70s and 80s as well, resurfaced in 2011 then 2013 and now 2016 it is in the spotlight. The big ‘it style’. This could definitely work in my favour because it might just never go out of style and I get to wear them afterall. Worst case scenario, I store them away and get ready to rock them in 2020 as a comeback.
I have, however, curated a list of items from around the web to make you drool and hopefully purchase, for both the ladies and the gentlemen. (Because I gat you)
P.S/ you can click on the titles and you’ll be redirected to the store where I found them.
FOR THE LADIES
FOR THE GENTLEMEN
