The NEW Velvet

With the holiday season sneaking up on us, it seems only natural that velvet would return to the scene…but not in the expected way. Velvet will no longer be limited to the stockings hung on the mantelpiece or the skirt on the base of the Christmas tree. Nor will it reemerge as the lining in a coffin nor the material of frumpy Victorian-era apparel. Rather, velvet has been rediscovered as the fabric of choice for something completely unexpected- nightlife wear. From skirts to blazers to dresses to booties, velvet adds a whimsical touch to winter weather apparel, while still looking dainty and put together. It is not as gaudy as sequins, but it still emanates the same air of celebration and occasion, and with the duality of being a primary piece in both casual and formal wear.
