When Does a Trend Become a Classic?

Velvet has been prominent on the fashion runways for three or more years. Designers love the luxurious fabric. In fact, velvet was an extremely popular fabric amongst the Renaissance fashionistas…for both men and women alike. Since velvet has been worn in various forms for millennia, shouldn’t it be designated a full-fledged classic?

Kiskadee carried this deluxe, sumptuous fabric in the past and it is clearly a staple this fall as well. Yes, it will always be a sumptuous fabric for fancy frocks, but our take is a bit more casual and perfect for everyday attire now and through spring.


Work it

Literally…slip on a velvet blazer and you are walking the walk and talking the talk as the boss you are. After work slip on some skinny jeans and you are ready for a chic date night.





Although velvet will always stay chic in navy and black, the colors this season may be the true trend of the fall…vibrant chartreuse, bronze, and creams. The crushed velvet in the below top looks so good in this versatile fabric. And mixing velvet with camo? Genius. A brilliant oxymoron that steals the spotlight.



Solid velvet too much for you? Focus on the back. This stunning top from European Culture is as cozy as your favorite sweatshirt, yet undeniably more stylish. Perfect for any daytime activity. And of course, it pairs perfectly with camo shoes…





Velvet can stand alone because of its own wonderful texture, luster, and shine. There is no need to think, just throw it on and go. These pants can be dressed up or down…whatever mood you are in. Sexy silk top and heels or casual sweater and furry kicks, velvet fits your mood and any occasion. Velvet is truly a chameleon fabric and a wonderful addition to any fall wardrobe.
