Fall 2016 Fashion Preview: Velvet Hour
I'm very excited to share a new weekly feature on Style & Forks. Starting next week I will publish a post featuring one of the exciting Fall 2016 fashion trends. It's simply impossible to fit all the trends into one post. Each trend will feature tips on how to wear the trend and where to shop for these trends. Below is a mini preview of what's to come.
Hope you enjoy!
This is the trend that I'm actually most excited for which is why I am starting the preview with it. I've always loved velvet, I love the way it looks and obviously the way it feels. however, I could never quite find the right occasion to wear it. Now I am seeing that I don't need a special occasion. There are so many ways to wear velvet that doesn't involve a full-length velvet dress (this is what I always imagined when imagined my velvet outfit). Velvet was all over the runways for the Fall 2016 shows, there were litteral full-length dress and small velvet details.
Shop The Trend
1. Mango Velvet Blazer $74.99
I LOVE blazers and I just know my blazer game would be taken to the next level if I owned a velvet blazer. The color of this Mango blazer is beautiful and the texture of the velvet makes it even more alluring.
2. NA-KD Velvet Sling Back Pumps - $25.74
I believe sling-backs are actually one of the most comfortable options for heels. These NA-KD heels are perfect. They're not too high and they would certainly add interest to any outfit.
3. Topshop Velvet Panel Bodysuit $50.00
This Topshop bodysuit is hot! However, it's not over revealing which is what I truly like about it. It can also be work in many ways; with a pencil skirt, high waisted pants, a blazer, or booty shorts. Whatever floats your boat.
4. AG Jeans Velvet Trousers $188
I'm embarrassed to admit that I do not own any trousers, all the pants I own are denim (#notanadult). However, these lovely AG jeans velvet trousers are making me think twice about trousers.
5. Zara Velvet Top $22.90
The silhouette of this Zara top is amazing. It's one that would look good on any body type and I love the extreme darkness of black velvet.
6. NA-KD Wide Velvet Choker $32.13
Love em or hate em, chokers are here to stay. Not gonna lie, I was a little hesitant at first but now I'm obsessed. This wide velvet choker from NA-KD is next level, it's gorgeous and will add instant drama do your outfit.
7. Zara Crossover Velvet Dress $49.90
As we all know, wrap dresses are the most flattering. I know it's probably too soon to be thinking about this but this Zara dress would be perfect for a holiday party.
