Trend Alert: Velvet Vixens

Gucci and L’Wren Scott looks from Fall 2012 collections.

You have probably already noticed – Velvet is back! Making a first appearance since 2010, now we have another opportunity to purchase a few items made from this luxurious and sumptuous material. It is fair to say that velvet will be a valuable addition to your closet. You have probably seen your mother and your grandmother whipping out their velvets every now and again and those pieces never losing their charm and ‘wow’ factor.

Velvet makes me think of Playboy mansion, a royalty on a trip to Monaco and a Gucci girl. Speaking of which, Kim Kardashian, who made a jaw dropping appearance last week at a the Midori Makeover Parlour in L.A. wore a stunning  emerald green Gucci from their Fall Winter 2012 collection, same as the navy version above. Gucci does velvet very well, but for those who have no means to go designer, I have also found a few perfect items from the high street that are bound to satisfy all your velvet cravings!

From left to right, Zara vamp shoe with velvet heel, £19.99; Red velvet blazer from River Island, £35; Topshop’s velvet shorts, £32; Juicy Couture bow front velvet bag, £56 (on sale, from outnet.com); Gucci long velvet dress; Velvet tapered pants By Malene Birker, £190; T by Alexander Wang maxi skirt, £112 (sale, from outnet.com); H&M heels, £29.99.
