If in front of your wardrobe you’re still convinced that you have anything to wear, neither today, or tomorrow, or the day after tomorrow, and you’re firmly sure that you need an intense shopping session, then it’s better if you update on the new trends of these months.

Therefore you have to know that a velvet touch is what you absolutely need in your outfits.

Whether you like to revoke gothic, bohemièn or aristocratic traditions, please remember that velvet is an isidious fabric, that doesn’t fit all the curves and is not easily wearable in all of its variations (in fact it tends to fatten). So, pay attention to corduroy, in particular the bigger one, in combining it with likewise compact fabrics, with heavy grain (like tweeds) and to colours: the result could be devastating and you coul also resemble your grandpa.

So if you want to be trendy, but not ridiculous, you can follow our suggestions taken from the runways of these months and you can take notes to avoid rough style mistakes.

For the ones who feel more Rock and Goth, the most desiderable colours are the same dark shades of their souls: black, night blue, marsala red, bottle green and amethyst purple. No worries for the more romantic ones because you can also wear warmer tones, like antique or peach pink and caramel.

If you’re interested in a pair of wide-leg pants (Palazzo Pants), is highly recommended to compensate the heavyness of the velvet fabric with a weightless, impalpable or transparent top (if you want to add some sexiness), as you can see from Emilio Pucci:

For the most bohemièn ones, who want to add some sophistication to their outfits, we suggest a velvet coat, like Costume National, Luisa Beccaria or again Emilio Pucci (in order):

If you feel very bold and you discover to be velvet crazy lovers , then you can try the total look (Sonia Rykiel, Valentino, Givency):

Otherwise, if you’re a bit intimidated by all this amount of velvet and you don’t feel completely ready to surrender yourself to this fabric, but at the same time you want to be trendy, go for accessorizes. Don’t worry if they’re  pochette or ankle boots, the important is that you wear them for your nightouts (not daytime). Go wild in substitute them to your usual choices and enjoy the result.
