90’s Trend: Regal Cool In Velvet

Add an opulent feel to your wardrobe with the season’s hottest trend: velvet. A palette of rich, royal colors comes to life with luscious velvet. The fall 2012 runways were all about it and now we’re bringing it to life with a rock ‘n’ roll flare. Velvet screams luxury – there’s something about its feel and color that makes you feel all royal. There’s a return of elegance in this trend, but we’re making it more about rock ‘n’ roll glamour by teaming velvet pants with edgy items like a rock tee, leather jacket , statement belt and maybe some western-inspired boots.

This look definitely screams fall and is, of course, a big runway idea for Fall 2012. Below are images from Burberry Prorsum, Marc Jacobs and Chloe.

  1. _YES_!!!!! awful skinnies are crowding my store shelves and when I ask for a flared pant, I get a look that makes me feel like I am from another planet….and of course get detoured to the wannabe flare that is really, in my opinion, a bootcut or a pre-teen straight-rail body type fit. Come on………I want to relive the glorious flares of the 90’s while I’m still young enough to start the trend back up and not so ridiculously old that my kid is embarrassed to be seen with me.
