October 4th, 2016 by Jennifer Beile Round Up: 7 Ways to Wear Velvet

Fall is my favorite season for fashion; the temperature is perfect for playing with different fabric weights, textures and colors. We are having an ’80s moment this season, and velvet is the fabric that is taking center stage. You’ll be seeing it everywhere if you haven’t already—in all colors, embroidered, as an accent or as the star of an outfit.

I’ve rounded up my favorite ways to wear velvet to inspire you this season!

The Pants
