While shopping and strollin’ in Soho yesterday my friend and I noticed a trend that we were a bit unsure of. Velvet. Some love it and some stay far away because it has the potential (ill-fitting) to not accentuate your body in the best way. One of the most important things about a luxury velvet fabric is fit. It’s truly supposed to be form-fitting to accentuate every curve rather than loose where it looks like you are wearing a velvet curtain.
While I am not a huge fan of velvet, I like to incorporate it in small doses. Sometimes trends are not fit for every woman, we each have different styles, different body shapes and we should marry them with the trend that we like and that fits us. Instead of following a trend, let the trend follow you. Here are some finds that I personally like and might inspire you to give velvet a try!
