It’s not often that i’ll jump on a trend, unless I know i’ll wear it whether it’s considered “in” or not. Enter my new love for velvet. Really, where has this luxe fabric been all my life? It makes any look feel a bit more Sex & the City — don’t you think?
I love adding velvet to my look in small amounts. Like a fabulous pair of heels, a dainty scarf, or a simple top paired with jeans. Something about adding it through dainty details seems so glamorous to me. But, if you’re skeptical of the fabric try starting out by adding a touch of it through a necklace or purse — it’s the perfect amount.
For my first dive into this luxe fabric, I chose a simple cape that I could wear even in the Florida heat. While I paired it with a classic pair of black jeans and heels here, I’ve also worn it over a dress for a more glamorous look. I’m linking a few of my favorite velvet pieces below. So make sure to check them out and find a piece that works with your wardrobe.
