Texture of the Season: Velvet

No longer relegated to holiday party wear, this plush fabric has been all over the 2016 runways.  This is one trend we don’t have to wait to rock – there are so many gorgeous options in plus available right now.  Better yet, many of my favorites are on sale!

If you feel a velvet dress looks too formal with the usual heels, try pairing it with ankle booties and a cropped moto jacket to add a little edge.  If you are not ready to commit to a dress, try an accent piece or a pair of shoes.  As temps warm up, add lighter colors to keep things springy.  I love this rosy hue from Missguided:
