Velvet is the Fabric for Fall

It happens every year…and somehow I still don’t own one velvet piece! I know many people might see it hard to pull off as a grown-up, like overalls, corduroy or culottes. However, there’s no mistaking that it’s an ultra luxe, beautiful, and soft fabric that emerges every year as temperatures drop. It also helps that it also always comes in several of the best jewel tones for fall! I absolutely love these colors, especially the dark blues and burgundys. Oh, and black never hurts either. It’s easy to rock a velvet blazer, but there are so many other great items made from this popular, timeless fabric!

I decided to go on a hunt for some of the most gorgeous velvet pieces I could find, after my interest was sparked by a newsletter from J Brand’s latest releases! I was not disappointed. No longer is a velvet pant just a velvet pant anymore—check out that amazing disco-ready BLANKNYC Flare in Burgundy Lush and the Rag & Bone/JEAN RBW23 Velvet Skinny Pants in Navy which features zipper details! I’m also crushing on the AG The Super Skinny Velvet Pants in Super Black and J Brand Mid Rise Super Skinny in Emerald. I was initially going to stick with jeans and bottoms but there were so many totally cute tops and shoes, and these DRESSES. Before I drool on myself (again), I’ll stop here and let the photos below do the talking.

Shopbop Presents the Principle Denim Collection

Most of us who have been wearing jeans for long enough already know what styles and brands best flatter our figures, but for many of us, finding the perfect pair of jeans is still quite the task! Fear not…because if you’re ready to dive into the premium denim market, Shopbop has got you covered with their new Principle Collection. This is so exciting…the retailer has partnered with 15 of the biggest names in the denim industry to design an ultimate collection of a wide variety of fits, styles and washes. We’re talking pieces from Rag & Bone/JEAN, AG, McGuire, Paige, FRAME, R13 and many, many more, in the form of flares, skinnies, crops, baby boots, micro flares and a few relaxed styles as well. They even squeezed in a classic BLANKNYC Vegan Leather piece (how couldn’t they?). I’m totally digging this collection, and Shopbop put together a great little lookbook in the form of a guide for those who just aren’t quite sure where to start. There are even two petite styles involved to be sure to include everyone! If you’re looking for a serious staple piece, this is a great place to look! The media sure has been trying to push this “denim is dying” idea on us for several months now, but the reality is quite different…and Shopbop is here to prove it. Check out the Principle Collection below!
