Va-Va Velvet! Formally reserved for cutesy childhood party dresses and nineties grunge, we think it’s time to get reacquainted with velvet. Fall’s most sumptuous fabric is making a post-90’s retro revival, as seen on the catwalks at L’Wren Scott, Zac Posen, Dolce & Gabbana, and Alexander Wang, and on style maven Diane Kruger. Whether draped, crushed or in the form of an opulent accessory, it is the season’s richest look.


Stick to simple silhouettes that are sleek and streamlined to balance the texture and dimension of the velvet

Reach for rich gem tones to keep the fabric looking fresh, think deep burgundy wine, emerald green, grape or sapphire

Vamp up a neutral ensemble with the help of a velvety bag, shoe, or hair accessory
