"Velvet is to fall what florals are to spring."
-Hayley Phelan, fashion contributor to the New York Times
One, two, three, four... oh, we have countless styles in stretch velvet this season, and with good reason! It's unmistakably the top trend for cool weather. Sara Campbell uses luxurious, imported stretch velvet to set ours apart from the rest. Trust me, you've never felt anything so soft or worn something so wonderfully comfortable. Sara loves our velvet jumpsuit, which is offered in navy or black. Here she is, prancing around the office wearing it! (Right)
InStyle writes, "Be warned: Bold colored velvet is making its presence known on the fall 2017 season," which we loved reading, because we're especially fond of our bright berry, navy, and burgundy stretch velvet pieces. Our now-famous stretch velvet palazzo pants (you loved them last year!) come in black; chocolate; or bright berry, if you're feeling fiercely festive. WhoWhatWear says, "expect for the velvet trend to take on a slightly new persona, one that's more elevated than seasons past," and we know just what they mean. Colored velvet is taking the trend up a notch from last fall, when we were just beginning to regard this textile as the next-big-thing.
Celebrities were early adopters to the fall velvet trend, which comes as no surprise. Posh celebrities in velvet from Vogue UK.
"...the material has what it takes to give any outfit a little oomph."
