The recurring trend for velvet is back again! Velvet is one of our favourite materials and it seems to make a reappearance in top trends each year, especially in the colder months and festive periods. Unlike most fashion trends, this one doesn’t tire - so investing in some gorgeous velvet numbers are sure wardrobe staples.
According to global fashion search platform Lyst, searches for “velvet” have been up by 30% month-on-month - not unusual for this time of year, but they have noticed that lockdown has bolstered velvet’s supremacy even more.
But why is velvet such a timeless trend?
Well, it adds effortless luxe to any style. Even with a year like 2020 where most of us have spent more time in our homes than showing off our style out & about we’re still looking for that soft fabric to make us feel glam. The fabric itself ounces shine and regality. A velvet top, dress or jacket is also an easy way to ‘dress up without the effort’ when on all those virtual meet-ups and virtual office Christmas parties.
Not only that, but the fabric itself is also cosy and warm - ideal for Autumn and Winter wear. Plus the many rich, deep and luxurious colours of velvet garments just seems to work whatever the occasion - everyday, off to the shops, a celebration or even something in-between.
