Crushed velvet has been popular in the midst of the ’90s revival. The trending colors in soft velvets were sweet pastels, black, eggplant and cranberry, which is not just refreshing—it is smart. These colors make the transition from winter to spring easily done. However, if you’re going to don velvet in warmer months, look for a thinner type. Whether it’s a well-cut dress or pants and a top, here’s how you will be wearing velvet next season.
