What I Want Now: Velvet

Last year in my list of “5 Fall Fashion Favorites for 2016,” I mentioned how much I love velvet touches on clothing and accessories.

Well, this year I’m taking it step further and demanding all velvet everything!

Here are a few items I’m loving that take velvet to the next level for fall 2017.

The velvet sneaker

Last year I had my eye on a pair of slip-on burgundy velvet sneakers. But now, I’m more into these — the Michael Kors Scout lace-up with gold touches, via Neiman Marcus ($135).

The velvet blazer

I think blazers made with different fabrics or patterns or embellishments make them all the more fun. This one from Lane Bryant could work for day with nice dress pants, but pairs well with a great skirt or jeans at night. 

The velvet top

This top, also from Lane Bryant, would work well at the office under a blazer (just not the velvet one — that’s a bit too much!) but would look even better with a pencil skirt for date night or a holiday party. 

The velvet skirt

What I like most about this skirt is its unexpected. Many times you see velvet skirts in heavy, full-length gathers. I personally think that look can be a bit dowdy. And while a pencil skirt has a sexy appeal, what I like about this Lane Bryant design is it has a boho feel that can be dressed up or dressed down.

The velvet bag

I like the idea of a velvet clutch, but velvet for daytime seems more modern. This crossbody from Target is affordable and the wine red color is perfect for the season.

    I’m all about the velvet now too! Sam Edelman has some cute velvet tennies, and I scored a Lucky velvet blazer on the sale rack last year. And you know I couldn’t resist some red velvet booties! 😉

    I have a pair of black velvet jeans from Talbots…bought 2 years ago. I love them and their versatility

    I can’t get through the holiday season without my black velvet slacks. Elegant AND comfortable!
