Both suede and velvet have a ’pile’ which may need a brush from time to time to freshen it up.
Much like Gremlins, these fabrics do not like to get wet so save them for dry days. Many stores offer faux suede or suedette options, these are the perfect vegan alternative to 100% authentic suede. Some of these fabrics are even machine washable. Velvet boots and scarves are a touch of everyday glam. Don’t save them for ‘best’. Today is the perfect day to be your best day so wear them today.
Go for high impact with a velvet jacket teamed with denim jeans, or a denim skirt and a soft chunky knit. Mixing up your fabrics in this way highlights this textural trend. A fool proof formula when wearing a glam fabric like velvet during the day is to keep the rest of the outfit low key classics so that the velvet item can shine.
