It is no surprise that 90’s trends are making a comeback. These trends bring back my teeny bopper nostalgia (cringing at the thought of my outfits) and the constant war of who I love better NSYNC or Backstreet Boys. Back then I just had to wear the latest fashion trends, most of which are now fashion don’ts.
However, one of the 90’s trends that made a comeback is the velvet trend (and it came back strong). Back then I thought I was cool and had to get all my outfits from Limited Too (do you guys remember them?! They were the Sh!t). First thing that came to mind were those velour suits, velvet from head to toe. Juicy Couture was the queen of those suits.
I can’t really say that I would totally rock the velvet on everything again.
Even though I can’t picture myself wearing these trends the same way I did as a teen, I do think there is a way to incorporate it into my modern day self. You will not see me in a full velour suit. However, I think a combination of my current style with the velvet fabric can definitely be a fashion win.
It is no surprise that I love classic and feminine pieces. When I saw this velvet pleated skirt, I immediately saw the velvet trend as a win. It elevated the pleated skirt and created a beautiful sheen look to the skirt. The movement of the pleats added shine and a new dimension to the skirt. The entire outfit is simple but because of the velvet fabric, it elevated the entire look. So if you were unsure about how to wear velvet, here are my tips on how to wear the velvet trend:
How to Wear the Velvet Trend
- Think of your current style and find classic pieces – I was
thinking of a blazer, pleated skirt, or heels
- Out of your classic pieces, try to envision it with velvet – I
envisioned my pleated skirt
- Pair that velvet classic piece with a simple piece. – I paired my
pleated skirt with a white one shoulder top.
this trend so well!
