These were my exact thoughts when finding out that velvet would be another big trend this fall. For the last couple of years velvet has just been a holiday fad with those blazers you saw at all the Office Christmas parties you attended. But a lot of top designers, such as Alexander McQueen and Burberry, have incorporated this fabric into more looks that you’ll definitely want to be seen in this fall. One benefit of this trend is that by adding a velvet piece, you give your look a more regal aesthetic, like Prince Akeem himself. I’m definitely a fan, and will be adding this trend to my fall looks. Will you?
