Fall Trends – Crushing on All Things Velvet

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.


The Fall trends definitely seem to be repeating themselves from last year.  I am seeing a lot of plaids, blanket scarves, faux leather/fur, and rich color palettes.  What I am most excited about making a comeback this year is velvet.  I was initially hesitant about this trend.  It reminded me and hit a little close to home going back to my pre-teen years of holiday dresses with thick velvet, stockings, and big red hair bows.  However, this revamped trend is showing up on all kinds of pieces and my favorite is definitely the velvet footwear.  Give me all the velvet booties.  So naturally I rounded up my favorite velvet pieces that will be perfect for the holidays and into the Winter.

Besides Rag & Bone, my other favorite denim maker AG has this pair that looks insanely comfy.  I also picked up this pair on the super affordable level (like $20 from Old Navy).  They run very large so size down, I got a 4 and they are still too big.  If you want to dip  your toe into the trend but not fully commit they are a budget friendly option.  I also picked up this super affordable skirt and tell me how gorgeous the color for the holidays is going to be!




I am in love with this velvet draped blazer.  How stunning is this dress by Ivanka Trump?  I ordered this dress and this dress for the holidays and both are under or around $20.

I have been crushing on these booties by Steve Madden.  They are a great price point and come in a few colors.  I ordered them in blue. Also, picked up this pair for the holidays as well.  I’ve seen these beauties floating around my Instagram feed as well.




Rebecca Minkoff Velvet Purse

I have been eyeing this Rebecca Minkoff Velvet purse for quite some time and finally scooped it up.  It is gorgeous in person and is perfect for the holidays.  It comes in so many colors as well, you can get some colors on sale right now at the Bloomingdale’s sale, it automatically updates in the cart.  I really love the texture and price point of this velvet clutch.  If you have a student email (or in my case a teacher email) you can get 10% off permanently and I signed up for the expedited shipping for a year which was an extra $19 but so worth it in the long haul.  I also added this skirt to my latest order. This is my ultimate favorite bag and has the best price point.



There you have it!  Crushing on velvet.  Do you have the same obsession?  What pieces do you have on your radar?  Make sure to check back tomorrow for my early Black Friday sales that you do not want to miss!

    Velvet feels so luxurious for some reason to me – I love that!! The colors are just so rich and pretty!! Those heels are so amazing! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

  2. Jaelan says:

    Right now I just cannot get into the velvet. Too many flashbacks from my youth. Haha!

  3. I think velvet is good in small doses, like an accent piece. The shoes and purses you listed are great! Fun fact: I can’t touch velvet without getting goosebumps and gagging. Yup, gagging. What’s that about?! The feel of it just creeps me out! But I think it’s pretty, especially in jewel tones. I’ll just have to admire it on others, haha!

  6. I wasn’t a fan of velvet in the 90’s, but I’m loving it now. Especially those Rag & Bone skinnies – gorgeous! Cheers to a fabulous and short holiday week <3

    I love those velvet leggings and boots you are wearing but OMG those leather leggings with the purple velvet shoes?!?!?!?! Stop it! That is so gorgeous! And I love the purple. Purple is seriously my favorite color and I don’t use it near enough in my wardrobe. I really love velvet leggings (but cant pull them off myself), shoes and accents like a cute jacket. I think those would be classic staple piece.

    I love that velvet swing dress! I could get on board with a budget friendly velvet piece. But I usually reserve velvet for furniture. We have a velvet sofa in our formal living room!

  9. I want some velvet pants now so bad! I am loving that trend so much, especially in all the rich colors!
