Get a jump start on the trend that just keeps on giving. Along with falling leaves and pumpkin spice lattés, Autumnal weather brings with it a warmth and fuzziness in the form of luscious layers. From nubby knits to the re-emergence of corduroy, there is plenty of texture to go around this season.
Velvet is our favorite entry-level fabric; soft to touch, rich with movement and oh so simple to mix into your existing wardrobe. Our failsafe sartorial intuition has us reaching for the classic jewel tones, but don’t be afraid to step into some of Fall’s newer hues like a deep mustard or dusty rose. The mixing of textures creates a soft palette for cozy cashmere and bundling up without the extra volume.
The way to wear velvet now is mixing classic chav-y sportswear with tailored separates in retro-modern cuts. Think elevated track pants and relaxed blazers – take note from Tommy Genesis, sticking with a primary palette and bold accessories in the form of YSL’s cult Opyum pumps and a leopard beret. Pile it on or keep the silky smooth texture to carefully curated accessories.
