What I Wore

Velvet Crush


I’m excited to share that I’ve teamed up with Leaf Boutique to share my favorite fall fashion trends. Stay tuned for more fabulous fall finds coming up on the blog. The timing is kind of  perfect as it’s finally beginning to feel like autumn.

While velvet is not a new trend, it certainly is a trend that I cannot not get enough of.  Maybe it’s the softness of the fabric or the opulence and richness of the fabric that attracts me. Velvet has a way of feeling dressy, when in fact it is super versatile.

It can be worn for day by replacing some of your normal go-tos for the luxe fabric. You can replace your regular cotton t-shirt with a velvet tee. A velvet tee can instantly elevate your look. It adds a little polish and sophistication to your overall look.

Joggers are super popular right now. If your go-to is usually a pair of jeans opt for velvet joggers. The texture is an unexpected twist that adds a bit of surprise to your look. Not to mention they are incredibly comfortable. A lot of people wear jeans because of the comfort aspect; but you can’t get more comfortable than a velvety smooth pant.

If you are on the daring side, opt for a head to toe velvet look.  I completely went for it an enveloped myself completely in velvet. Keeping it monotone in all black keeps the overall feel of my look sleek. Incorporate other textures to break up the look.  The addition of a leather jacket and tweed boots complete the look and give it depth.
