Our region is, above all else, all about glamour and luxury — and no fabric other than velvet captures that air of opulence. As seen on the runways of Dolce & Gabbana, Roberto Cavalli and Alberta Ferretti for Fall 2015, designers put the ultra soft, delicately shiny material into forefront in the form of clothing, shoes, bags, chokers, and even hair accessories.
When would be a better time to embrace glamour and exude opulence with this chic wardrobe addition? If you’re not quite ready to be covered in the luxurious yet statement fabric, the easiest way to step into the trend is in the form of more subtle additions to your wardrobe. A pair of velvet shoes or a small handbag, for example, gets you instantly evening-ready and carries just a hint of glamour without being over-the-top.
Pair with wintery fabrics such as structured jacquards, matte wools, and just a bit of skin for a classic yet modern look.
