Over the last few years we are seeing velvet surfacing very gently every fall. Designers were very cautious about this heavy fabric. Maybe because it can easily add to your age and weight if you are not careful. But this fall something changed. Designers are not any more shy about the use of this material. Other way round they went all out. You can now see velvet everywhere. There is so much velvet, it almost makes you feel like from another planet if you are not owning at least one velvet piece. And that is not all. Handbags also fall straight into this trend. This season velvet handbags are a huge hit.
Designers who are now making velvet handbags must be over the moon now. Because this trend really caught everyone’s heart. Most of the velvet handbags are in very rich dark colours, clearly for the season time, however I wouldn’t be surprised if we would see more of this coming later toward spring time in lighter colours.
Now the question is, how do you style your velvet handbags? What do you wear it with? Velvet always goes well with very light fabric, like satin to compensate the heavy look.What kind of shoes you match it with? Well if you get completely stuck, you can always match it is velvet shoes. I know it is not an easy task to find perfectly matching shoes, so I did the work for you and here you can see the hottest velvet handbags with matching shoes of the season.
Jimmy Choo this season created a great selection when it comes to velvet. I have chosen this golden velvet handbag (via Jimmy Choo £ 475) with same colour (via Neiman Marcus $895) shoes from the same brand. It is slightly unusual colour and that is what make the classic design much more exciting.
Another Jimmy Choo set. In fact it is the same shoulder bag (via Saks Fifth Avenue $ 765) like the previous one just in different colour. The shoes (via Neiman Marcus $ 750) are the same brand high heel and sexy.
Les Petit Jouers dark red velvet bag (via Neiman Marcus $ 1020) with these Miu Miu heels (via Neiman Marcus $ 750) is a perfect match for those looking for more bohemian look.
Seems like the rich red is the velvet colour of the season. MCM studded red velvet handbag (via Neiman Marcus $ 1150) paired with Charlotte Olympia shoes (via Neiman Marcus $695). Don’t you love it?
Saint Laurent red velvet shoulder bag (via Bergdorf Goodman $ 1990) and the Stuart Weitzman over the knee boots (via Neiman Marcus $ 798) is one hottest combination I saw lately.
This Lanvin velvet handbag (via Neiman Marcus $ 1395) paired with stunning Manolo Blahnik heels (via Neiman Marcus $ 965) is amazing.I am absolutely obsessing about the richness of this dark red.
OK maybe red or dark red is too much for you to handle? Maybe you prefer something more subtle? in that case why dont you go for navy blue. Traditional and classic yet still in trendy velvet. This Hayward bag (via Neiman Marcus $ 650) is perfect for daytime and you can easily pair it with these Saint Laurent ankle boots (via Neiman Marcus $ 995). Perfect choice if you want an upgrade from your normal leather boots.
Stella Mccartney navy shoulder bag (via Neiman Marcus $ 1595) and Jimmy Choo shoes (via Neiman Marcus $ 890). Navy, or rather midnight blue I would call this colour is a great option if you want to play it quite safe but are tired of black. This bag is stunning and these Jimmy Choo shoes will certainly make your legs looks mile long.
Gucci Marmont in black velvet (via Neiman Marcus $1290 for mini Marmont). I had to add as well some black classic. Gucci Marmont is a hit this year and in the black you simply can’t go wrong. There are plenty of black shoes out there, so will be quite easy for you to match. I have chosen rock chic Balmain boots (via Neiman Marcus $ 1565). These amazing boots will make even your rainy days special.
So if you are still not having at least one velvet piece you better hurry before someone else will buy it first.
have a wonderful fall
