My Favorite Velvet Pieces This Fall

40 of my velvet picks, in every hue.
By Emily,

If anything, the velvet trend that swept through last fall has only gotten stronger this season. Last year, I fell in love with fabric pumps and crushed velvet skirts, but this time around, designers (myself included!) are embracing the luxe, smooth look of the fabric, in a full spectrum of styles and colors. Personally I'm thrilled, since you really can't go wrong repping a velvet statement piece to holiday parties or the office! Here are forty of my favorite pieces, in every hue:

1. Red Parker Blazer ($168): One of my favorite velvet trends of late are the suits that are seemingly everywhere now—I love the bold look of this blazer.

2. Red Bella Mule ($160): If you live somewhere that doesn't get cold in the winter, but still want your footwear to feel festive, an open-toe velvet mule like this one is the way to go. 

3. Red Bell-Sleeve Velvet & Lace Dress ($98): This dress speaks for itself—pair it with a simple pair of strappy pumps. 

4. Red Velvet Loafers with Bow ($40): I truly can't believe how inexpensive these shoes are. Wear them with a pair of skinny trousers for a chic, office-ready look.

5. Red Velour Bodysuit ($35): If you aren't sure about the velvet trend, this bodysuit is an easy way to test the waters.

6. Orange Rosie Wallet Crossbody Bag ($39): I'm all about a statement orange moment in an otherwise neutral outfit to add some interest. 

7. Orange Dream Team Top ($98): This top balances the thick weight of the fabric with thin lace for a perfectly complementary look. 

8. Orange Misha Mini Dress ($108): A '70s-feeling dress, with a velour twist.

9. Yellow Collection Double-Breasted Blazer ($298): It takes some confidence to pull-off this blazer, but how amazing would it look with some skinny navy pants and pumps? 

10. Yellow Coco Mules ($395): One of the pricier options on this list, but I love the subtle knot detail on them. 

11. Yellow Beatrix Velvet Skirt Chartreuse ($132): This skirt has a similar vibe to another favorite of mine—style it with a flouncy top and mules. 

12. Yellow Nadya Tank ($148): Perfect for laying velvet under a blazer or structured jacket.

13. Yellow Faram Mules ($200): These heels take an unexpected turn, mixing a summery espadrille heel with velvet. 

14. Green Miri Backless Mini Dress ($66): A mini dress for a holiday party or night out. 

15. Green Jacket with Passementerie ($90): The passementerie detailing on this jacket lends it a vintage feel that feels very Parisian. 

16. Green Flounce Of-the-Shoulder Bodysuit ($15): I'd wear this tucked into high-waisted trousers. 

17. Green Trace Mule ($80): An easy way to work a touch of velvet into your everyday outfit.

18. Green Try Out Cropped Hoodie ($99): A playful piece that marries glamour with athleisure. 

19. Green Blazer ($110): This emerald-hued blazer can transform your everyday uniform into a romantic look for a night out. 

20. Green Mabelle Pants ($97): Pair these bold pants with a simple black bodysuit to reinvent a classic holiday party ensemble.  

21. Green Mini Wrap Dress ($50): A new (inexpensive!) riff on a DVF staple—dress it up with some statement earrings. 

22. Indigo Ella Pumps ($128): A variation on one of my favorite styles of Madewell shoes. 

23. Indigo Suki Smocked Neck Top ($265): Contrast this romantic blouse against a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans and simple heels. 

24. Blue Bridget Booties ($195): I love the idea of revamping a classic style with a dramatic flare. I'd pair these incredible midnight-hued boots with any dress, skirt, or cropped jeans.  

25. Blue Jacket ($99): This coat effortlessly combines a vintage silhouette with modern fabric, for a street-style cool look for under $100.

26. Blue Ankle Boot ($48): Disco boots are in and these boots prove it, and the turquoise color will work with more than you think. 

27. Blue High Heel Shoes ($30): I'm all about swapping out my go-to black pumps with a velvet option in the holidays. 

28. Purple Button-Down Mini Skirt ($54): A vintage-inspired high-rise mini that would look extremely cute with ankle boots.

29. Purple Maria Skinny Jeans ($228): Velvet jeans are the new corduroy. 

30. Blue Romantic Moves Long Sleeve Romper ($58): The bow detail on this romper adds such a flattering, eye-grabbing detail. 

31. Purple Over the Knee High Heel Boots ($100): If you're bold enough to slide these on, pair them with a simple black dress for a traffic-stopping New Year's outfit. 

32. Purple Naomi Jumpsuit ($246): If you aren't brave enough to rep a full-velvet suit, a jumpsuit is a great option. 

33. Purple Leo Clutch ($95): This berry-toned clutch would make even the simplest evening outfit feel special. 

34. Purple Agus Top ($202): A one-shoulder ruffle top that still somehow feels understated. 

35. Pink Pleated Bow Headband ($14): This simple headband reminds me of some of my earlier posts (and makes me wonder why I don't wear them more often!). 

36. Pink Wales Dress ($120): I designed this pink velvet dress with a Greek toga in mind—I love how the velvet fabric falls. 

37. Pink Faux Wrap Bodysuit ($60): The deep mauve pink of this body suit would look great with vintage Levi's.

38. Pink Kobe Top ($84): An everyday top, in the prettiest baby pink hue. 

39. Pink Zack Pump ($170): The glitter heel on these pumps would nicely offset a more formal trouser.

40. Pink First Kiss Bra ($40): I love the idea of wearing this bra with a sheer top, or a low-v, and allowing a hint of lace to peek out.
