I Love The Velvet Trend For Autumn

When it comes to velvet, I have been obsessed with the fabric since I was a little girl. When I was young, I used to have a couple of velvet pieces of clothing and they were extremely precious to me, so it’s a fabric I have held close to my heart for so long. I can safely say that whenever I see anything in velvet, I’m always drawn to it because it feels so luxurious and fancy. If there’s one item and it comes in an array of fabrics and velvet is an option, I will buy it in velvet. That’s how much I love it!

I have noticed that velvet has been getting a lot more popular with designers as the years have gone on, especially the last couple of years, but this year it’s exploded. It started when I got my Chanel Small Boy Bag in Bordeaux Velvet and since then, everyone has been releasing velvet bags, shoes, and clothing, that we just can’t get enough of! Those Chloe Susanna Boots in the top left (number 1) I was able to purchase and I think they are the most beautiful shoes I have ever seen in the entire universe, that’s how much I love them. They arrived yesterday and I can’t wait to share them with you soon!

I wanted to do a roundup of the most gorgeous velvet pieces which are available to buy right now, from designers to high street, so there’s something for everyone. I have to say that Autumn 2016 is the season for velvet shoes. Everyone is obsessing over them and there’s such a huge selection to choose from, you can’t go wrong with velvet footwear. Then as so many of us love to style our bags and shoes to match, a velvet bag is the next best thing! If I was a guy, I would be one of those ones wearing a velvet tuxedo at any moment I could, ha ha. That’s how much I love it! Especially in burgundy, it’s the best! How many of you love the velvet trend too? Is it a trend you are into? Check out these too!

    Hehehe I just wrote about this too! Isn’t it so pretty?! I don’t know why I don’t own one velvet piece yet. I think it’s time to change that lol. Oh and I love how you put all your suggested pieces together like a puzzle for your images! Looks so neat and tidy πŸ™‚

    It’s nice to know about your choices – like, velvet or another fabric, always velvet. I loved velvet too, since I was 8 years old – I remember the situation πŸ™‚ And this year “trend” – I guess you and I never stopped wearing it – is perfect because no one will call it, like I have already heard “nice that you took the cushions and made a jacket” πŸ™‚ Just funny. I am in love with so many pieces of velvety items – the selection is great! Hope you have a very nice week!

      Oh you get that too!! We are so similar, ha ha! I usually get the ‘oh you borrowed your grans slippers’ because of my velvet shoes. People just don’t get how gorgeous velvet is do they? But now that all the designers are bringing it out, maybe we made them see the light, ha ha!

    These pieces are all gorgeous Lorna! There’s definitely something special and luxurious about velvet as you said, especially when it’s purple, as it looks very regal! I love the selection of items on your wish list. I can’t wait to see how you style your new burgundy boots. I bet they look stunning on you!

    Lots of love Saba xx
