Soft, warm, and luxurious, are just some of the reasons why we're loving the velvet trend. With designers like Rebecca Taylor, Dolce & Gabbana, and Rachel Zoe leading the pack with their new iterations on the classic textile, we're excited to add a fresh piece, or two, to our Winter wardrobe. The latest offerings highlight new velvet hues — like oxblood and forest green — and snazzy embellishments. Style tip: avoid any "crushed" velvet finishes as they tend to make you look like an '80s flashback, and instead opt for traditional black or jewel toned hues for a look that can literally wear season after season.
