Velvet trend 2016 let’s cuddle everday. In autumn there is an urgent need to find the right feeling. Tactile first. Silk and cotton seem ready to rest until next season. We are looking for thicker fabrics able to envelop and reassure us. Cashmere, wool, but especially velvet. Luxurious and precious, though often it is only a semblance. It gives brightness. Sophistication and the right amount of retro taste that can be many different things together.
Velvet trend 2016 is first of all a tactile experience
You have a velvet skin
The petals of a rose are as smooth as velvet. A fabric that recalls to mind a whole imaginary of delicacy and softness. On the other side velvet can also be heavy and excessive. As the curtains of a house belonging to another age. Or the richest clothes of distant centuries.
Defusing. This is the key.
From head to toe as long as you don’t take yourself too seriously. Suits, shirts, jackets, bags and shoes. Chocker and even intimate. Purple red, petrol blue, powder pink, mustard yellow and blue. Many shades ready to change color when hit by light.
Not only fashion, but also interior for the velvet trend 2016
Velvet we are talking about today is smooth – neither rib as the pants of the 70’s nor even particularly valuable. However, it is absolutely perfect for a trendy outfit.
Low-cut dresses worn with sweatshirts and t-shirts. Pants with sneakers. Velvet lingerie under a tulle gown.
More over blankets and pillows that can add light and color to any interior.
Loafers, boots, sandals and Mary Jane. Velvet is more discreet than painted leather and less seriously than smooth skin. When you wear it you place yourself directly between those who think that a dress says a lot about you to the world.
