Velvet is anticipated to be one of the hottest trends this Fall, and honestly we couldn’t be more thrilled! There is just something about velvet that draws you in.

Want something with the flash of sequins and the smoothness of silk? Then you need some crushed velvet in your life! Unlike traditional velvet, crushed velvet has a crinkled texture to it which emphasizes all the shadows and highlights of the fabric. This results in giving the fabric a unique glistening multi-dimensional appearance. Crushed velvet can be styled to be the main focal point of the outfit or it can also be used as an accent piece when paired with contrasting fabrics.

 

Bell-Sleeve

The retro bell sleeve is all the rage right now and why not kick things up a notch by adding some velvet into the mix? Dress it down for any everyday boho look or dress it up for a special occasion!

 

Cocktail

Looking for that perfect dress for a holiday party or date night? Why not wear a velvet cocktail dress? Velvet will instantly glam up your look, plus the lovely sheen of the fabric will enhance the natural draping of the dress, making you look utterly unforgettable.

We hope you enjoyed this little sneak peek of whats to come in the following seasons! Are you as excited as we are for velvet this Fall/Winter? Which velvet trend do you love?

Graduation Day Outfits – Our top picks for your big day!

As students cram for their upcoming finals, we know this means one thing: Graduation season is right around the corner!

For most people, graduation tends to be a major event, as it celebrates the achievement of earning a diploma and the start of the next chapter in life. Celebrating this day with classmates, friends and family, we all know there will be many pictures taken, and below are some of our top pick to make sure your outfit is photo album (and Instagram) ready!

When it comes to graduation dresses, people tend to lean towards demure styles, ranging from casual to semi-formal looks. We don’t recommend micro mini dresses or lavish sequined ball gowns, but the range of dresses in between gives you many options. Most importantly you want to pick something you’re comfortable and confident wearing.

THE CLASSIC LOOK: BLACK & WHITE

Black and white are great go-to colors. White has a clean fresh look to it and black is sleek & classy. Both are timeless, elegant and sophisticated.

RETRO CHIC: THE SHIFT DRESS

Shift dresses have no defined waist or structure, but can also be extremely flattering. These dresses draw the attention away from your mid section while also elongating your legs.

LASTLY, LETS TALK ACCESSORIES!

They can vary depending on several factors such as the style, color, and neckline of your dress but here are some items you may want to consider for your big day.Access-2.jpg

Wedges: Swap out your heels for wedges. These will add some height, pair lovely with your dress and offer longer lasting comfort.
*If your are attending an outdoor graduation these will also be a fantastic choice because they will prevent you from sinking into the grass.
