Why you will love this trend
I know I know, velvet has made a mini comeback for a while now already & the 90's grunge revival looks to be fading into the background of the fashion radar. But for those of you whom bought into the trend last season... fear not! There are so many different ways of wearing velvet & from the runway to the streets it looks like the velvet trend is here to stay for yet another season at least. But rather than pigeon holing the luxuriously soft fabric into a one look '90's grunge revival' wonder here are a few more looks to re-inspire your velvet apparel.
Velvet can be worn in so many different ways.
You can go for an ethnic inspired exotic take like model Amanda Norgaard, above, or the 'Grunge' look á la Freja Erichsen when she was spotted backstage wearing her staple tight leather trousers replacing her customary leather jacket for a fan velvet jacket instead sparking the 90's grunge revival part deux.
But my favourite look I have to say is the elegant, classic take on the material, á la Rocas Fall 2010 , as seen in the image below.
Whichever your preference, velvet is sticking around for a little while longer so choose your favourite look & embrace it ;)
