That Other Trend...
Soooo woops... I guess I should have counted my collages a bit better because I missed one of the most important ones for this season: VELVET! (I know, you're thinking "Velvet Sky!"...and I am so with you :). Velvet Sky would indeed be an awesome trend. However, the one ruling Planet Fashion atm is velvet, the fabric. It's plush, it's luxurious, it's been away for awhile and now, it's having a moment. And that means, you either need to excavate the velvet you already have bured in your wardrobe, or you need to get you some, stat! :) Velvet is dressy by nature, so it can be used for formal events (do a Lana-like bustier atop a silk maxi skirt for a holiday party or winter wedding), or to dress down more casual pieces (consider a velvet blazer paired with distressed denim for a luxe-meets-laidback look). If you're looking to invest in velvet, camis, bustiers and other tops will be the easiest and most cost effective way to add some to your look. Chokers are another budget-friendly and totally on-trend option. If you're looking to invest a bit in a piece you'll have for awhile, go the blazer route. or be daring and try velvet shoes!
