Today we’re talking about one of my personal favorite trends this season: velvet. You know, that fuzzy texture from the 80s-90s you hoped would (never?) come back. It seems to be one of the trends that disappears for a 3-4 years before making a re-appearance, and that’s exactly where it’s at again. But if you’re anything like me– and you guys already know I’m big on textures– this is a great thing! Because what’s more fall fashion-esque than a bit of this magically soft fabric?
So first I’m just going to admit that I purchased these amazing sequined velvet legging from Forever 21 circa 2013. They were fantastic then, and it’s even more fantastic when I get to re-use fashion favorites that cost me less than 50 bucks… wouldn’t you agree? They’re so incredibly soft, stretchy, and I’m honestly amazed that none of the sequins have fallen off yet.
I also purchased this oversized sweater from Express three years ago. Apparently my theme this week should have been “What’s in the Back of my Closet,” but anyway… y’all already know of my undying love for oversized sweaters. Pregnant or not, who doesn’t love a good chunky knit that doesn’t make you feel chunky? I’ll take it!
Lastly, as much as I love to declare my undying love for boots daily, these slip-on sneakers have been my favorite non-boot purchase all year. I can’t express how ridiculously comfortable they are, and as an added bonus, you can wear them with practically anything. I’ve even worn them with casual dresses when feeling rather daring, but most days I’m in casual mom mode.
What’s your opinion on the velvet trend? Are you on the YAY or NAY train?
