After 50s, 70s and last being hugely popular in the 90s, it’s back again!
Back in fall of 1996, my mother bought me a cobalt blue velvet jumpsuit for one of the occasions and I bagged a lot of compliments. If I’d known the velvet trend will come back around and sweep me off my feet again, I would have saved that outfit. But you don’t care much about the fashion renaissance when you’re 6.
The rebirth of this plush fabric has successfully made the royal velvet trend our favorite this season. From incorporating it’s richness in dresses to skirts and even jeans, the designers all around the globe are doing it all uninhibitedly. The innate grandeur of the fabric was visible all throughout the wedding season and continues to charm us with its opulence in formal blazers for men and women alike.
If you’re not sure of flaunting all-over velvet separates or let’s just say you’re the shy kinds but want to surf the trend nevertheless. We suggest you take a look at our gorgeously regal Simply Sizzlin Velvet-picks:
