Fashion Trend: Velvet
I love seeing velvet coming back in fashion. There are some gorgeous clothes around at the moment perfect for the colder days of the year. Velvet can be one of those hit or miss fabrics. With the right style, texture and shape you could look like a million dollars. In my opinion simple, clean cut designs usually goes best with velvet. The cut plays a big part in modernizing the garment as well.
On the runway velvet ran through the collections of Armani Prive, Fendi, Jean Paul Gaultier, Prada, Ralph Lauren to name a few.
On celebrities we see the likes of Katie Holmes, Jessica Alba and Eve Mendes wearing this gorgeous trend in not just black velvet (which is normally the obvious choice) but jewel toned numbers. Jewel tone colouring is also a big favourite this season (think topaz, ruby, sapphire - deep colours).
You can find some lovely velvet items in High Street stores such as Dorothy Perkins, H&M and online stores such as ASOS.
