One fashion moment I am happy to see carry over into the New Year is velvet.
Buh-bye cut out shoulders!
Buh-bye designer Crocs!
All of the above can stay in 2017, thank you very much. When it comes to trends that stay and trends that go it’s no surprise the trends that stay are the ones with C-L-A-S-S. There is a richness and timeless look to velvet pieces. There is a fresh approach to velvet, especially accessories like the highly coveted Saint Laurent Loulou boot (psst, they are currently 50% off at Net-a-Porter).
People are always asking me what trends are worth investing in. My answer is always the same; only embrace the trends that go with your personal style. A velvet blazer, pant suit or handbag would make a great investment to your wardrobe for the long haul.

Now let’s talk interiors. Velvet in rich jewel tones (especially midnight blue) have been everywhere since 2016. Too much velvet can be overwhelming and a bit tacky in a space. However, a touch a velvet to a room adds a nice luxurious feel to it.
