Hello, my friends!. It is this time of the year where velvet is everywhere. In fact, Velvet is in fashion for the third year in a raw. The luxuries textile is perfect for any occasion from work to dinner. Unfortunately, I was not able to get in this trend until this year. First, I was not a big fan of the styles. Second, the colors remind me of my black velvet dress with a red bow that my mom forced me to wear when I was little. However, this year I noticed new styles and colors. Finally, velvet captures my heart and I could not resist this fashion trend anymore. Thus, I got my first red velvet top. Today, I will tackle if velvet fashion trend will be in for another year and how I styled my red velvet top.
Is velvet fashion trend in for another year?
In my opinion, Holiday and velvet go together like peanut butter and jelly. In fact, It is the fashion stable that will come back every year with new colors and styles. To begin with, Velvet is a chic texture and great for fall, whether it’s featured as a top or funky sock ankle boots. This texture is so multifaceted and versatile that runaway and fashion magazines will not get rid of anytime soon. And you know what that means; indeed we will see it again in stores. So if you planning to get your hand on a few velvet pieces, this is your time.
Red velvet top – How I styled it
Red velvet top is the perfect addition to anyone closet including my closet. In fact, The color is ideal for elegant, retro feel looks. Thus, when I spotted a cherry red velvet top online from express, I had to get it. I was also thinking to get it in black because well you know the saying if you love the style get it in all colors. However, It was out of stock in my size by the time I get the fabulous cherry red velvet delivered to my house. I am guessing it was that famous. But I am eyeing other velvet styles from express in blue, teal and black. You can check Express velvet collection in here.
This top has a sophisticated -chic mock neck silhouette that flatters my long neck. Actually, I fall in love with this cherry red since it is versatile to pair with so many pieces; from skirts, trousers to jeans to even white jeans.
Pair it with jeans
In order to let the beautiful cherry red velvet shine through, I paired it with white jeans. I love to break fashion rules such as “no white after labor day” and wear my white jeans in winter paired with a warm lovely red top. The jeans I am wearing are from Bebe. I got them in the summer sale and they are my go-to white skinny jeans. If you are looking to splurge on similar jeans; Macy’s has a great white jeans collection or you can shop your closet to look for your perfect white jeans.
Put a cape or coat on it
Layering a coat or cape on velvet top is a dream if you live in a cold area. Nothing let you feel warm and cozy than a coat or cape right!. This camel cape was a great steal from Nordstrom sale a few years ago. The style and the color of this cape send me back to the 60’s. Walking in fall in Paris!? Yes, do you get the picture. Or is it just me?. Anyway if you are like me who loves retro anything then look for a camel cape and sport it with almost anything you want.
One of the things that you cannot tell from these pictures is that it was 30F which is equal to -1 Celsius. So I was freezing and my cape kept me warm while I was taking pictures. Bonus !.😉
Team it with ankle bootie
As tempting as it is to wear my snakeskin print high heels or OTK boots I wore in my potential thanksgiving dinner outfit, I have to admit when it comes to my active life. I will pick low-heel ankle booties against any heels. Let’s get real, When it hits the end of fall, prioritizing is key. for me comfort comes first. When I came across, this gorgeous Leila bootie from Toms, I instantly had to have it. Besides, It is a brand I trust in both quality and comfort. These low-heel camel booties are sleek and comfortable with adorable tassel zipper on the back. It will complement everything from skirts to jeans.
