Let’s be real, the true inspiration behind Selena Gomez’s “Can’t Keep My Hands to Myself” was velvet, people. And let me tell you, homegirl knew what she was talking about. You want to look and feel like a million bucks? Throw on the lavish, touchable sheen of velvet.
I am sure you’re giving me an eye roll through your computer screen and I get it. Velvet is to fall what florals are to spring, but (drum roll please) the 2017 runways are giving us a new take on the fabrication: bold color. It’s time to ditch that basic black and navy, and turn up the volume on your color wheel.
Jason Wu and Cédric Charlier sent canary and gold swing dresses sashaying down the runway, Monse crushed it with a rich azure jumpsuit, and Cinq à Sept opted for a pale pink number. You color, your way, the options are literally endless.
Pair a velvet blazer or victorian inspired top back to light washed denim, pop an outfit with a velvet slide or boot, or layer with a luxe velvet slip dress. Trust me on this one, and make velvet the fabric of your life this season.
