CRAVINGS: velvet dreams.

As the festive time of the year is approaching, I think it is safe to say that velvet is a major trend of the season. The fabric presents a perfect mix of elegance and weather-appropriate features. Especially colors like dark red, gray and black are so great for the holiday season and will instantly add a special twist to your look. For everyone that is not too sure about the trend yet, I would recommend starting with bags and shoes – just a little hint of velvet. Ever since I first spotted that Gucci bag back in July (which unfortunately never made it’s way into my closet due to terrible customer service), I have been loving the look. Even though my Saint Laurent bag is suede and not velvet, I do feel like it is a great alternative. I also purchased an embellished velvet blazer during Summer (seen here) and am pretty sure I’ll get a ton of use out of it for Christmas parties and NYE celebrations. Today, a great pair of booties or slippers and possibly a dress are on my velvet wishlist.

Missguided ankle boots: While Summer is all about those breezy light colors, the colder season has me drawn to a palette that includes pretty grays, gorgeous emerald and darker reds. Also, I feel like these would be comfortable to walk in – a great heel version for Fall and Winter.

Urban Outfitters body suit: Can you just imagine this body suit layered with a silk camisole and a simple pair of skinny jeans? So chic!

Madewell velvet jumpsuit: I feel like palazzo pants or a nice jumpsuit can be just as suitable for fancier events. So why not skip the dress for once and go for a pretty velvet jumpsuit instead?

Saint Laurent bag: This was actually a really close call to the Saint Laurent bag I got, but in the end I decided that red would be a better, more unexpected addition to my wardrobe. Nonetheless, a black velvet bag will probably never go out of style. By the way, if you love my red bag, this is an affordable and similar version.

Michael Kors embellished slippers: I kind of wish Winter didn’t include snow and cold temperatures, so these slippers would actually be wearable. Still, they are so pretty and maybe a warm Winter destination or indoor event would be a good excuse to splurge on these.

PS. Speaking of cravings, don’t miss the mid-season sale currently going on at Monnier Freres with up to 50% off on brands like Acne, Chloé and Jimmy Choo.

      Und jetzt habe ich gerade bemerkt, dass es gar kein Jumpsuit, sondern ein Blazer ist, haha. 😉

  • […] Remember those velvet dreams I talked about last week? While I still have a few more velvet-y pieces on my wishlist, I got lucky with this velvet jacket back in September. I’ve worn it in different ways (even with my Dirndl), but my favorite combination is with the red Saint Laurent bag. The embroidery of the jacket includes little red details and I feel like the bag is a perfect match! For last week’s look with the embellished velvet blazer, I layered a summer dress over denim and boots. I think it works – what do you guys think? […]

  • […] dass mir die gängigen Modetrends bekannt sind. Das heißt nicht, dass ich mich direkt in ein schauriges Samtkleid werfe, aber ich weiß zumindest, was ich tragen müsste, um en vogue (oder en Fashionblog) zu sein. […]
