The must-have fabric and texture of the times. Velvet, just like so many textiles has been revised, reworked, and renewed. You can find luxurious silk velvet and affordable and durable polyester velvet that wear well, wash well and look amazing.
Of course we know velvet is a cold-weather stiffer fabric, and in years past we’ve seen gorgeous velvet jackets and suits, but you can now find beautiful, soft even silky blouses, hoodies, dresses and pants. Velvet is no longer a fabric with little movement. It can be luxe and drape-y.
That being said, the other crazy cool thing about velvet is that it’s VERY slimming. In fact, the most slimming fabric in the world is black velvet, because velvet absorbs the light and offers little to no reflection. It can take 10 pounds off in seconds flat! Talk about a great fabric to wear for holiday dinner! Ha!
Designers are loving velvet this year and you’re sure to find it in gorgeous rich colors. Don’t be afraid to buy it. It’s not a fabric that’s hard to care for. You’ll love how it feel and the fresh elevated look of this fabric. Enjoy!
You can do this!
