Fall Trend: Velvet

Velvet – a luxurious yet subtle statement to any wardrobe. Here are just a couple ways we’ll be wearing the velvet trend this season, making the transition into fall as smooth as the fabric itself.

The Mini Dress: Wear a CHRISTOPHER KANE Velvet Mini Dress with a bright yellow MARQUES ALMEIDA Top for a chic party-ready look. Accessorize with statement knee-high GUCCI Logo Boots and a glistening EDIE PARKER Bag. Simplify the mini dress approach with a velvet ALEXANDRE VAUTHIER Draped Mini Dress and contrasting LEANDRA MEDINE Kitten Boots.

The Jumpsuit: Make the lux velvet trend more casual with a SALONI Loretta Jumpsuit and ACNE STUDIOS Sweater. Bring some sunshine into the mix with a pair of CÉLINE Sunglasses and a HEIMAT ATLANTICA Mini Basket Bag. Contrast the brights with a set of THE ROW Coco Mules in suede and satin.

The Evening Dress: The velvet trend carries through the night in a long STELLA MCCARTNEY Velvet Dress made from Japanese velvet and sustainable viscose. Simplicity key in a full-velvet look, so accessorize lightly with a pair of ALEXANDER BIRMANN Boots, HEIMAT ATLANTICA Necklace, and CÉLINE Earrings. Alternatively, opt for a ADAM LIPPES Velvet Tunic and matching ADAM LIPPES Velvet Pant for a two-piece variation of the evening dress.

The Fringed Sleeve: Add a flare to your velvet look with a SAINT LAURENT Fringe Sleeve Top paired with a contrasting floral GUCCI Midi Dress for an easy and chic cocktail look.

The (Not-So-Formal) Suit: Saint Laurent’s iconic women’s tuxedo takes a turn at this fall’s velvet trend – pairing a SAINT LAURENT Velvet Blazer with a SACAI Silk and Chiffon Skirt. Accessorize with an OFF-WHITE Diagonal Box Bag, LHD LHD X Aurelie Bidermann Earrings, and NIKE Sneakers.
