During fashion week, the fall runways were filled with thick and luscious fabrics like velvet and brocade. While an obvious callback to the 90s, the velvet trend has also been inspired by 70s fashion with the deep jewel tones, wider cuts, and paisley and floral patterns that retailers and designers have created. This lush fabric may seem a little intimidating at first, but it’s actually really wearable. Here’s a list of some awesome velvet options that will take you from the office, to a wedding, to a night in the city this season:
