Fall 2016 Fashion Trend: Velvet


It's official, basking temperatures no longer stand and fall is moving in fast. Which is great news for me given I have a ton of leftover fall pieces from last year which I never wore and a few trends I've been eyeing up ahead of the cold season. And to start off with my first outfit of the season I don't think I could have possibly chosen a more perfect trend: velvet

Designers can't seem to get enough of this rich, luxe look for the season. But, I confess I've not always been a fan. I remember being a kid and seeing my mum wear all sorts of velvet pieces and never actually liking any of it but as with most of this year's trend, this is one that has come back stronger than ever and what do you know, with its modern twist and the gorgeous designs out there, I have been converted.


Don't get me wrong, I'm not ready to wear velvet head to toe (although I did fall in love with a velvet suit I saw on the Cosmopolitan catwalk I attended last Friday) but injections of this pretty trend here and there are harmless and easy to pull off. When I saw this top at Zara (in Algarve, Portugal), I knew I had to have it. Not only does it look great under a tee for a more casual outfit, pair it with a black blazer and tailored pants, and you're off to a much more elegant night outing. Despite its very affordable price tag (£15.99), this is one of those items I know I will be wearing on repeat, shamelessly, so do expect to see a lot more of it here and on my Instagram (@pamella_scalfi).

Top: Zara (here) // Jeans: New Look (here) // Fringe Bag: H&M (similar here) // Patent Boots: New Look (here
The verdict is, Velvet is THE fabric of the season and you will be seeing a multitude of items in it, whether you're heading to the high street or something a little fancier. From tops like this one to pants, dresses and even shoes including boots and sandals, velvet is the fabric to bet all of your money on and have fun with. 

Thoughts on the velvet trend? Have you gone shopping for any fall items yet?
Let me know below! Thanks for reading and happy hump day!

  1. I didn't like velvet before either and I'm still not too keen on it, but the way you've worn it here - Yes! Love it! It's subtle and not in your face. Gorgeous.

  14. I love how you've put it over a white top to give it a more casual vibe, they do that with silk dresses too and it look amazing!

  15. I love that you layered it with a white tee and it made the velvet trend very chic and wearable. And because I'm a beauty addict, may I know what lipstick are you wearing? It's stunning on you!

  17. The 90's vibe is strong with this look - in combination with that choker it's perfect! Hehe, I'm digging the velvet trend. I had a bodycon velvet skirt last year that never got much wear though :/ I think I just need too find a better piece though.
    Great styling Pam!

  34. I am biased to talk about velvet because I simply love it and I wear it for ages, and will go on this way for some more decades if I live :) So it's a pleasure to see you wearing this nice top, dear Pam, it really looks amazing and your outfit is so beautiful! Glad that you started liking it, it really looks great on you! I liked the boots as well and the bag! You look amazing as usual! Hope you have a very beautiful day!

  50. I'm devastated that Autumn is here haha! But I'm the same as you, I still have quite a few pieces from last Autumn that need to be worn. I haven't purchased any velvet pieces, but it looks stunning on you and I'd definitely wear your outfit. It's funny because all I used to wear when I was 12-14 was velvet tracksuits (oh the shame) haha!!
