FIVE DAYS OF FALL. the velvet trend!

November 09, 2012

what a fabulous week of Fall fashion, right?! we had the structured dress + oxfords that we paired with a killer chunky necklace. (remember, when in doubt... always throw on a statement necklace!) then we put together a high waisted wool skirt + a sweater. in this look, i love the mix of prints, fabrics, and textures. the third look was a mix of menswear + layers. this didn't take much thinking outside the box for me... since this is a go-to look i feel comfortable with, however, i still dig it. and the last Fall outfit was leggings + a tunic sweater. if this look had an umbrella paired with it, this would have been a perfect outfit for yesterdays first rainy LA day! so today we are talking about one of my favorite trends for this Fall........ and we're talkin VELVET! if you can add one new piece to your closet this Fall, i suggest adding a velvet blazer, bag, or slacks would be ideal! 

check out some velvet pieces i adore... 

here's a velvet blazer that would be perfect for an afternoon coffee date.

could be the perfect amount of velvet for a dress!

this is a great look for fall... the velvet pants make it.

I really love how updated velvet is this season. I typically think of it for bag 90s prom dresses. I am loving it lately as well!

Emily-- I totally agree! But if it's not "crushed" velvet, I'm totally ok with it. Happy friday!
