Fashion trends come and go like a brightly colored merry go round. If the fall luxe velvet trend captured your heart, you’ll be happy to know it will be one of the hottest trends again in 2018.

Once considered a fall and winter fabric, you can expect to see variations of velvet throughout this year, most likely with violet (Pantone’s Color of the Year) front and center. WooHoo!

I picked up this velvet burnout kimono last winter and I’m over the moon to say it is a piece that will get me through the upcoming spring/summer season in fabulous style.

Velvet is a feminine and romantic fabric and the burnout trend adds a serious dash of sass to update this classic. Velvet burnout pieces can flawlessly go from casual to evening with the change of a few pieces.
