Velvet is a trend that has been around for a while now. I remember in the 1990’s, it was usually incorporated into cute crop tops or dresses, but now it is everywhere, even on shoes!
I really love when velvet comes and adds an unexpected pop in certain accessories! Would you believe I thrifted these shoes?!😍 I found them at Goodwill for only $5.99! They were my size, so I had to get them! Normally, these shoes would retail for anywhere from $14.99-$24.99 easily!
I love the way velvet looks in different lighting, like in these pictures! It has a sheen and life all of its own!
I also found this 1990’s Gap Brand Velvet Shirt!😍 It is actually listed on my Etsy!👇🏻
I just loved the red and the fact that it’s such a staple piece, a button down shirt! It’s soft and comfortable, but also stylish! One of those shirts that can be worn normally or tied up!
I also thought it was such a festive red for the holidays coming up!🎄
If I can give you any tips for velvet, it would be this: THRIFT IT. 🙌🏻
Velvet is one of those things you can easily find at thrift stores, if you’re willing to get out there and look. I mean, you can also buy some newer pieces that incorporate it, but there’s just something about finding it secondhand and vintage!
It’s definitely a trend that has been around for the last year or so and here to stay a little while longer, I think!
What are your thoughts on the material? Do you like velvet? And if so, what’s your favorite color? I have to say green and yellow have always caught my eye!
