The favorite texture of the season is without any doubt the velvet. For Faal/Winter 2016, all major fashion brands are proposing the velvet in different formulas, from Fendi, Tom Ford, Roland Mouret, Phillip Lim, Bottega Veneta and so on.
In fiecare an, sezonul de toamna ma ia prin surprindere si oarecum, pe nepregatite. Motiv pentru care cu greu imi organizez garderoba de sezon si renunt la hainele preferate de vara.
Totusi, fortata de imprejurari, am ajuns la un consens cu propriul dressing si am acceptat o parte din piesele de toamna ca fiind parte integranta a urmatoarelor luni din viata mea.
Because it`s Saturday and we are all allowed to dream a little more than usual, let`s play a little game. Imagine you could wear whatever you`d like, without any concern about trends, must have pieces and what`s thought as being cool or not.
I let my imagination run wild and I found the perfect pieces to dress me during this Fall. It’s not what you would’ve expected, since it’s so different from my daily wardrobe routine. But it’s not that I don’t love this style, it’s just a matter of lifestyle and reality versus dream kind of situation – no, I don’t have a driver, nor do I live in a castle
When I saw them for the first time, I knew I would fall in love with them! And I did! My pair of men inspired shoes, in a perfect mirror silver shade are one of the best investments I did for my wardrobe in the last years!
Dacă iubești nuanțele de roșu, atunci tendințele sezonului îți vor surâde
The Fall/Winter 2016 season bring back a texture we seamed to forgot in the past years: the velvet. Everything this season will be covered in velvet, from dresses, to blazers and trousers, lingerie or chokers. Misterious, sexy, glam and uber-trendy, the must have pieces of the season have at least a touch of velvet.
While the main problem with this texture is that it really needs to be high quality, otherwise it will probably look cheap – and we don’t want that , it also can make you look bigger than you actually are. So, to solve this issues and not give up on this lovely trend, I advice you to take a look at the velvet shoes on the market this season.
A pair of velvet shoes is just the item you need to embrace the fall trends, but also keep your usual style in place. They are also versatile, so you can mix them up with any outfit of your choice, because they go perfectly well in the day and in the night, from casual look to super elegant ones.
I personally love the velvet sandals, I this they work best with this noble and elegant texture. On the other hand, I also love slippers and loafers, which I can mix with a pyjama set for a casual look.
Of course you will find stilettos, 70’s inspired boots or over-knee boots, sneakers, all in velvet, you’ll be able to choose your favorite from a wide range of models.
In the end, because I’m really intro flats lately, I must show you this pair of velvet pointed flats by Paul Andres, in a perfect shade of dark blue. Aren’t they beautiful?
Anyway, whatever you will choose, I do advice you not to wear more than 1 piece of clothing in velvet in your outfit. It may look good on the catwalk, but It’s a little too much for every day life, no matter the occasion. Wear a pair of velvet shoes and mix it with denim, lace, silk, cotton, maybe even cashmere in the colder days, whatever you think it works for a stylish outfit.
PS: I think velvet shoes are here to stay, at least for the next 2 seasons so they just might be a good investment!
