As I mentioned in one of my recent style inspiration posts, velvet is one of the trends you must invest in for autumn/winter. Seen on the A/W16 runways of Valentino, Roksanda, Ellery, Sonia Rykiel and Erdem (just to name a few), velvet is perfect to wear for any kind of occasion, whether dressy or casual.
For this outfit, I’ve rocked the trend up top with a gorgeous blue velvet number. Instead of styling the top with another velvet piece to achieve a velvet x velvet look (a style I’m loving, by the way!), I went more casual by wearing white distressed jeans.
Are you into the velvet trend, or are you not so much a fan? Let me know what you think, fashion babes!
Emma’s prediction – If Victoria Beckham’s recent NYFW runway show is anything to go by, velvet will still be a huge trend for S/S17! So invest fashion babes, it’ll be around for a while.
