Greetings from NYC!
The weather here is lovely today, so I have been out and about running errands. I noticed that velvet is definitely in for the season; everyone seems to be wearing it. I used to think that velvet was only used in vampire movies, but done the right way, velvet can look opulent, luxurious, and expensive.
Golden rule of velvet: the fabric itself makes the statement, so stay with neutral colored velvet.
Since velvet is such a thick fabric, you want to show some skin to break it up. This plus size tube top is great to wear out during the Winter/Fall.
These plus size velvet leggings started my obsession with the fabric. I saw them at Target and ended up not buying them because I couldnt think of an outfit to wear with them. BIG REGRET. They can add a sense of style to a white t-shirt and boots.
Lane Bryant Women’s Plus Size/Ivy Velvet military jacket – Size 16
Brand: Lane Bryant
I tried this one in one of my YouTube videos (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NwEB8_P5Qxs).I can say from experience this is a perfect jacket. The length is great because it gives the appearance of a longer torso. The vertical buttons also give you length, as well as, being right on trend with the military style.
Have a good weekend!
