Maybe it's my love of Austin Powers and his blue velvet suit, or the strong desire to belt out the lyrics to "Black Velvet" by Alannah Myles at the top of my lungs every time I think of the fabric, but I'm seriously crushing on velvet right now (this velvet burnout dress included).
Although I've purchased some velvet skinnies in years past that I still own and covet, admittedly beyond that, I may have smirked a year ago if you would have told me velvet would be trending in such a major way now. I may have actually laughed in your face if you had told me I'd be buying velvety tops and shoes and chokers gallore, but I am.

So if you're looking to dip your toe in the velvet sands this season, I've rounded up a slew of velvety smooth pieces of all sorts in all different price ranges. For the love of red velvet cake, please do not wear a velvet dress, with a velvet choker, and velvet shoes. One area of velvet is enough unless you are The Velveteen Rabbit. Think subtle, not full on gypsy. And if you do wear more than one of these pieces at the same time, don't tell anyone you it was me who told you about them all 😉
And now more pictures of this look from a sushi day date.
Yours in retail sharing,
