Reasons Velvet is Trending
You may be thinking, velvet? Isn’t that what Hugh Hefner and people in the 70's wore? Well, yes but there are plenty of reasons why it’s back and on fire. Being a heavier fabric, it’s great for dropping temperatures in the autumn and winter such as throwing on this velvet blazer. It will also always give an outfit a vintage flair.
While, yes, it was popular in the ‘70s, velvet always has resurgent cycles due to its timeless edge. GQ said it best, “But you don't want to look like an imitation Hugh Hefner or worse, a couch, so you've got to navigate the trend carefully.” Therefore, you need to know and learn how to wear this fabulous and striking fabric.
How to Wear Velvet
Ideally, velvet works best with classic wardrobe staples. If you’re just starting out you may want to pair it with denim or basic cotton, for example. Once you get more confident pulling it off you can try it in a full patterned suit. If you don’t want to go full velvet then opt for a velvet lapel. It’s also the perfect fabric for the social season, especially wearing it to all those Christmas parties. It doesn’t matter much if you want to wear it in plain or bold print in this case.
Fall and winter are the perfect seasons to incorporate more velvet into your wardrobe. It’s a fabric that can be worn day or night as well. It’s a texture that truly looks good on everyone and that can be dressed up or worn more casually.
