Velvet | Winter Trends | Style Saturday
I’ll admit, when I read the word “velvet” in my trend watch I might have gagged a bit on my flashbacks of itchy Christmas dresses and my grandmother’s throw pillows. honestly, isn’t that what you think of? But I swallowed my pride (AND that gag reflex) and dove into this trend like a good little researcher – and I was pleasantly surprised by all of the fashions that incorporate velvet both tastefully and with quite a bit of spunk!
If there is one thing I love dearly it’s texture – the bolder the better – so it really didn’t make sense that I had such an inherent distaste for this luscious fabric. Now that I have seen all of the great ways velvet is being used in updated fashion trends (come on….velvet hoodies!!!), I might just have to take all of those preconceived notions and toss them out the door —- to make room for my new velvet shoes!
