2018 Trend Alert: Crushed Velvet!
If you haven't seen this trend, it's definitely one that's made a comeback in the past couple of years and I love it! I've always been a fan of velvet and it can look absolutely stunning and beautiful if combined with the right pieces and in the right hue. The latest in this trend has lately been spotted in deep, dark rich shades like the burgundy featured in the pic above...although you can also snag it in the opposite side of the scale in light rose pinks & creams as well! Pair pieces sparingly so the look isn't overdone and go with simple makeup to complete the look. Want to give this trend a try?
