Another day, another 90s trend making a comeback. This time around, it’s the luxe velvet fabric that is yet again enjoying the style spotlight.
The Fall/Winter 2021 runways were awash with the winter favorite velvet fabric. With luxury powerhouses like Chanel, Emporio Armani, and Dolce and Gabbana making a case for the timeless textile, it’s no surprise that velvet is now populating the street style scene.
As has recently become the case, it’s the cult-favorite brand, Khaite, that is (almost) singlehandedly responsible for jolting the velvet trend back into popularity. Khaite’s ‘Ann’ velvet dress (available in two colors) is the talk of the fashion circuit. So much that we are certain you’ve seen the ruched and flared number pop on your Instagram feeds at least a couple of times.

There’s no doubt that the textured fabric is elegant, powerful, and wearable all at once. The plush fabric is also as versatile as fashion can get. Is there anything that can’t be made out of velvet? Dresses, cocktail gowns, skirts, blazers shoes, handbags, tracksuits, headbands, and even face masks sewn out of the smooth fabric are enjoying “It” girls’ attention. Not only are there endless possibilities when it comes to styling velvet, but it’s also the easiest and the quickest way to elevate just about any outfit. Perhaps that explains why the fashion crowd hardly ever seems to tire of the trend.
