Velvet. Let’s talk about it. Velvet always reemerges in the fall and winter months. It’s heavy. You probably have either a love or hate relationship with it. Lovers, you are going to be very happy this fall. Velvet is going to be a bigger presence and an actual trend. Haters, we’re talking to you. Re-think your relationship with velvet. It’s not a prehistoric fabric reserved for royalty. Velvet has gotten a modern update. Take, for example, Needle & Thread’s “Fleur Devore” velvet dress ($322). This above-the-knee dress is feminine, flirty and fun. Pair it with some tall black heels and take on the town in your new favorite LBD.
