Velvet trousers hit the runway
Get that regal feeling by adorning yourself in a soft pair of velvet trousers.
The fabric of choice for kings and queens has been having a revival on the catwalk recently, appearing in dress, skirt and trouser form. The latter has been the predominant style, with fashion houses including Marc Jacobs, Chloé and Miu Miu all opting for the velvet trouser aesthetic.
At the Emilio Pucci Fall/Winter 11 show the look was taken up another royal notch, as the slacks made a runway appearance in regal purple.
This soft and seductive material is not only super comfy, but it will also give a classy and highly flattering look. Velvet trousers are available in a skinny style for a rock chic image, or a more demure and classically chic Capri pant variety.
If you don’t have a designer budget then fear not, because there are often pairs of velvet bottoms to be found in thrift stores.
