Velvet: the trend for winter 2017

Altuzarra

Even this year, with my great joy, velvet is one of the trends of the winter season 2017.

Elegant, lofty and sensual velvet makes any garment special.

Velvet is a fabric I love, as I have said, for the color changes that can be appreciated in movement or folds; its shades are always brilliant and seem they give life to the fabric.

Today’s velvets are so light and soft that they are almost impalpable, many different from those of when I was a teenager.

I remember the corduroy pants or coats of my youth, very heavy and tending to make those who wore them look fat.

At present, the lightness and softness of the fabric with which clothing is made makes it also good for curvy women.

How to wear velvet

Here are some proposal by famous designers for the winter 2017.

Look at the beauty of Dior‘s long gown or the shades of yellow Altuzarra dress  that seem to emit energy  like sunlight rays, the lightness and freshness of Au Jour le Jour outfit. Not to mention Dolce & Gabbana trouser suits or Alberta Ferretti coats.

But there is no need to invest a capital, there are affordable brands that offer very attractive items.

In one of the next posts I will show you what was my choice …
