The furniture industry has shown it already: materials tend to be soft and cosy again. The same goes for fashion. And which fabric could be softer and more appropriate than velvet? But forget about dumpy gowns and skirts in bordeaux or dark green that make girls look like a christmas tree.
This season velvet shows a rather cool side that makes it even an option to be worn during warmer days. It comes in thinner versions, fancy colors and modern fits to show a light yet relaxed elegant attitude such as Mes Demoiselles’ wide pants or Jupe by Jackie’s cute blouses.
Last but not least accessories and footwear could help to give each outfit that bit of festive and still funny touch: Asos’ hair bands, Miu Miu’s flats or Charlotte Olympia’s kitten clutch are fashionista’s favorites.
