Too 90s?

When I always think of velvet the 90s spring to mind (which wasn't the decade where fashion thrived), but recently it's made a comeback and I'm really starting to love it. It's really perfect for winter as it's comfy and warm and the texture looks really cosy. This is one of those really versatile materials that can be perfect for night and day. For day, velvet leggings, an oversized tee with a leather jacket and ankle boots for an edgy look or else a peter pan collar blouse with a blazer and a comfy oversized scarf. For night, channel this look through a body-con dress in jewel colours and Jeffrey Campbell lita dupes as your footwear!

Pop Couture - £15

Motel Rocks - £52

Missguided - £12.99

Topshop - £20

Ark Clothing - £22.99

I really love the peplum top (I'm mad about peplum at the minute), it would look gorgeous with my disco pants or a pair of shorts with tights for winter. The velvet trends definitely look better in darker colours.

So, what do you think of this trend or is it just too 90s?

  12. I love this post for a million reasons! The 90's were epic, and I was hugely involved with gymnastics during this time which consisted of crushed velvet leotards and matching scrunchies- Either way, the 90's and velvet will always hold a special place in my heart :) Thanks for your comment, by the way. Love the blog! Follow each other? <3 Emily
