After summertime chaos, a new season is about to kick into full gear! Do you think you’re up for the task of becoming a chic and sleek, fall fashionista? Autumn opens the door to a whole, new selection of darker tones, longer layers, and thicker materials. It’s easy to carried away browsing through all the Fall wonders like booties, coats, and sweaters. Yet, actually assembling and successfully styling your Fall wardrobe can be quiet daunting…Luckily, PurseBop is here to help!
Last year, PurseBop investigated all the Fall Trends fresh from Vogue. This year we will do another Fall Spectacular investigation of the latest trend split up into a few special episodes. Of course, we will cover the new and hottest, designer bags, but you can also expect style advice on other accessories like shoes, beauty products, clothes and more!
The first trend we’re covering, and possibly the most popular trend of the season, is velvet. Velvet is naturally a go-to option for colder seasons because it is a thicker material. But, why is everyone so obsessed with velvet this year?
Velvet is super soft and plush, and designers love translating the tactile sensation of velvet into a visual experience too. Velvet is also a reminder of eras past and is often associated with royalty. Even in a modern day context, velvet is luxurious and sumptuous, and can give a sophisticated appeal to any accessory.
If you want to experiment with different materials and textures, look into velvet this season! Down below are a few shopping suggestions that fully channel “velvet vibes”.
