TalitaSays 's Thoughts:

Hi Chictopians!

I'm all about the fall and winter trends right now, especially the wearable ones like knit beanies, turtlenecks and over-the-knee boots. But what about the decidedly luxe and totally winter-appropriate velvet trend? Velvet might be plush and luxurious, but that doesn't mean you need to save it for special occasions only.

The key to wearing velvet for day is to choose pieces with a clean silhouette and pair them with modern pieces. Case in point, this Stylemint velvet skater skirt I wore for brunch the other day. Because the skater skirt has a flirty and young cut, it helps take the velvet away from Downton-Abbey territory. I paired it with an H&M cropped sweater and American Apparel over-the-knee socks for an edgier vibe.
