Still remember the soft feeling at your finger point when touching the velvet cloth, and how excited when the kid finds the color changes back and forth? Velvet has been a hot statement since last year and it survives all the way till this spring, so I cannot find a reason NOT to have at least one velvet piece in my closet. That item could be the hotties like a velvet slip dress or a pair of velvet booties, but you may also consider velvet bikini.

However, I don’t think velvet is not a textile for any type of body, especially considering the exaggerating effect of a pair of velvet skinny pants or leggings, it is possibly the worst idea. Fashion is not for everyone, but you can be the fashionable one with the smart decision. Let’s see what’s the easiest velvet item to be added into your spring closet.


还记得小时候玩正毛反毛的那种心理么?指尖撸过丝绒面料的时候就是给人舒服、柔软、丝滑的感觉(怎么觉得这是说某品牌洗发水呢。。。)丝绒凭着其低调奢华的“正反毛效果”在时尚界大热,跟着来的各种单品也是一个一个接着来,印象中最火的还是丝绒高跟短靴和丝绒吊带长裙,这几天搜了下才发现连丝绒比基尼都出来了,真是吓坏宝宝了(这能下水么!)

总觉得丝绒不是每个身板都能驾驭的,换作是自己这种“健硕型”的,来一个丝绒legging或者straight pants估计就把缺掉都暴露出来了。好在,各大品牌不遗余力发展丝绒流,继续往下划,看看我都挑了哪些值得下手的丝绒单品。


Suit

A set of impressive velvet suit won’t get you and your office buddies down. Fashionable as the burgundy red crossover track pants, this is probably the most fashionable moment I have read this year. You will say it’s a bit too outstanding then a set of all black won’t get your wrong. Don’t forget one gold or rose golden accessory to upgrade the look, or a pair of nice heels also works.


写到“丝绒比基尼”那会,其实丝绒套装才是当下丝绒潮流中的新新成员,上图左边的街拍图算是最新出炉,酒红色的低调张扬,裤装再crossover track pants(是叫“线裤”么)元素,可算是开年的经典街拍了。当然这是人家穿去 impress 街拍摄影师的,平常里如果要选丝绒套装,黑色绝对是最安全的选择,想要出挑点了可以选一些金色、玫瑰金色的精致首饰或者一双出挑又端庄大方的高跟鞋。

Blazer

Blazer is originally one of the closet essentials and when it hits velvet, you become a famous chemist. A nice velvet blazer is the highlight of your look and all other parts can follow the “Less Is More” rule. London-based fashion blogger, Lucy, shared the velvet blazer inspired look in her blog, Fashion Me Now. Her Mango velvet blazer is slightly oversized with the magical bronze color. Well, she’s got another trendy accessory, JW Anderson Pierce Bag.


衣橱基本款 Blazer 遇上丝绒就起化学作用了,有了这两,整套搭配的其余部分就可以从简了。伦敦时尚博主Lucy在她的Fashion Me Now里分享这样一套休闲混搭时尚潮流的每日搭配,简单的绒面黑短靴、破洞加cropped高腰直筒牛仔和时下流行的statement tee,干净简单,亮点就在她搭上的那件Mango长版丝绒Blazer,颜色是绝了,让我想到小时候金色marker水笔写出来的那种感觉,当然她的JW Anderson Pierce Bag 也是很加分的装饰品。

Choker

I guess velvet choker would be the easiest investment for everyone, but you might know your collection well to get your velvet chocker ready. It could be a collection of all luxury-looking colors like the dark green, deep dark black, dusty rose, luxury purple, heavy blue, thick bloody red, or even warm orange.


简单设计的丝绒 Choker 可以算是最省钱的选择了。个人觉得 Choker 这盘棋需要准备好不同颜色的兵,上图里的墨绿色很美,乌漆麻黑的正黑、带点烟灰feel的粉、雍容华贵的罗兰紫、冰冷高贵的宝蓝、醇到不行的酒红,还有温温暖暖的橘色都是值得考虑的,最重要看清楚自己衣橱里的颜色表。

Tee

You might consider to add a velvet tee into your tee collection. It’s absolutely another to-go item especially you can find a good-cut version. It can pair with denims, light-weight or silky maxi dress; it’s even more interesting to pair with moto leggings. About the cutting, maybe a short-cut to soften the shoulder line would be a good idea to avoid the exaggerate effect.


一条有版型的丝绒 Tee 绝对能让你爱到每天穿,搭配牛仔裤/裙,叠搭一些轻纱或者同样丝绒质感的长裙,跟贴身 moto legging 来个大冲撞,可玩性强大。

Midi/Maxi Dress

There’re too much reference of dresses since summer time, and velvet goes well with the flowing midi or maxi dress. The wrapper velvet maxi dress looks won high reputation in the last Fashion Week.


丝绒吊带裙我就不特意找点图来重复show了,wrapped 类型的倒算是新贵,估计也是迎着冷飕飕的冬季来的,刚过去的 Fashion Week 里着一紫一绿两妹子赚了不少眼球,两位的 wrapped dress 各有不同。Hailey 的这身绿的也挺特别,上身的设计挺考验身材,不过整体feel 还是不错的。

Shoes / Heels

Velvet is an expression of feminine, so as heels. Velvet heels (shoes) won’t be out of the consideration. For winter, I love 3.1 Phillip Lim’s ankle booties in blue. Magically it won’t shorten my legs even with the close-ankle design and thanks to the soft velvet texture, there’s zero pressure around the ankle. A perfect night-out needs the elegant velvet heels with Jimmy Choo’s silky black belt, Alexandre Birman’s simplified butterfly knot, and Aquazzura’s thin ankle ring.


丝绒的优雅完美展现女性美,高跟鞋也是,丝绒高跟鞋的上场应该是预料之中的。最爱的当属 3.1 Phillip Lim 的宝蓝色包踝靴,别看跟高又是包脚踝的设计,亲自试过打破难穿的蜚语,粗跟加上贴合脚底的设计穿的完全没压力,丝绒的柔软质地把脚踝包的妥妥的,还有空间“呼吸”,最神就是完全没有缩短腿部比例的弊端。非靴子的话,你都会找到点跟丝绒搭在一起的小细节,绑个丝带(上图左下Jimmy Choo)、系个简化蝴蝶结(上图右上Alexandre Birman),或者简简单单的一个block 环住脚脖子(上图右下Aquazzura),宫廷 lady 无处不在。

Handbag

Fashion blogger Anna’s French look is a hot pin, and it’s just the simplest “tee + jeans” formula, however, the fashionist knows “Less Is More” rule by heart. The cute velvet crossbody chain bag in burgundy echoes the same pump heels, are her trick.


时尚博主Anna的这张街拍也是Pinterest上的热门收藏之一,其实她的搭配是简单的Tee加牛仔基本formula,不过人家知道什么叫做一两拨千金和前呼后应,这一两就是暗红色的丝绒斜挎小包,这呼应的就是脚上那对同色好同质地的尖头高跟鞋。

 

See you next time!
