This year has seen the return of Velvet on the fashion scene. Velvet was in the 90’s (I’m dating myself) but in 2017, it has come back with some elevated looks. You will see new styles in tailored pants, swing skirts, bomber jackets, jumpsuits, leggings and of course the trusted wrap dress.

Gone are the days of seeing velvet as an over the top fabric. It has taken the world by storm and has shown up on runways and trickled down to everyday wear. The elegance of the fabric is seamlessly merged with the modern and casual design. This trend is a great way to spruce up a casual outfit or knock them dead at the many parties you will be attending the upcoming months. This trend is hot for fall and we’ll be seeing a lot more of it as we make our way into the winter season.

Below are some great ways that you can incorporate this trend into your wardrobe. I have mixed in a few Plus size pieces as well because that’s my body shape and I want to show you that you can effortlessly rock this trend no matter your size.
