Velvet in Fall 2016

zara velvet dress

The Velvet trend is at it’s all time highest for fall 2016. Almost every store has their version of velvet and we can find it in every piece from dresses, accessories, boots, bags, and home decor. (I would love to own a velvet couch in this color.) What’s even better about this trend that you can find it at all price point. This dress came from Zara and cost under $30! (Similar dress here.) Velvet automatically gives off a luxe look because of the sheen of the fabric and soft texture. And the colors, they almost always have the richest hues of any color.

For this look I wanted a casual feel so I went with over the knee boots with a low heel. Mirror sunnies cause that’s how I do, lol, and my beloved vintage Chanel backpack. I’m still so obsessed with this purse after many years and dare I say that I like it more than the newer styles in the boutiques.

    Hi! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa? My website addresses a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you are interested feel free to send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!

    Love this outfit, you look great! I’m going to have to get out my cool weather clothes and see if I have any velvet items. I don’t think I do – what a great excuse to go shopping!
