It is safe to say that 2016 was basically a revival of the 90s when it comes to the fashion world ranging from crop tops to block heels and chokers and the dreaded bell bottoms are coming back as well. 2017 is also going strong when it comes to following the 90s with trends like heels over socks and lip glosses taking center stage once again. Another addition that was also a major highlight in Paris Fashion Week was the return of velvet.
Did that make you shudder? Did it bring about flashbacks of the Juicy Couture velvet tracksuits that used to be a cult favorite at the time? Velvet is an amazingly soft and comfortable fabric that has a lovely luxurious sheen to it and can be worn during winters to stay warm and can last comfortably during spring as well.
There is a lot more to velvet than just tracksuits, if anything, you can find velvet in every clothing item to accessory ranging from chokers to dresses and even shoes and boots. In fact, you can visit www.lotusboutique.com, which is an online boutique company where you can find plenty of variety when it comes to velvet.
The problem with velvet is that most people do not know how to wear it which is why the chances of it turning into a disaster is relatively high. Velvet should only be worn one clothing item at a time and it is complimented best by a fabric that opposes it, so opposite textures like denim, silk and even organza works well with velvet. Your clothing items should normally be of the same color palette as well so compliment the velvet sheen. Dark colors go well with velvet but two other neutral colors that suit velvet at grey and baby pink. You can look up potential designs on an Online Boutique Company like www.lotusboutique.com for designs.
