Fashion Forward: Velvet
Nothing says fall like something in velvet. So go ahead and grab a little something in ths glamourous fabric.
(WSVN) Nothing says holiday like velvet --- whether it's in a party dress.
A classic pant suit or an updataed velvet top over printed pants.
If it comes in velvet it's at Burdines.
Melissa Goff, Burdines, says "This year you're gonna see panel velvet you're gonna see crushed velvet you're gonna see stretch velvet you're gonna see embellished velvet so this year more than ever absolutely it's a staple.. "
Head to Express where they've got velvet pants.
Cut on the casual side almost like a pair of jeans.
But you can still dress them up in black or winter white.
Melissa Smith, Express, says "It's a great going out party look but it's not that dressy it's lightweight it's great for South Florida of course it's just fun.."
It's a velvet goldmine at Arden B.
They've got dresses with velvet embroidery.
And blouses with just hints of the rich fabric.
Even guys can get in on the action at En Avance...
"Jean shirt really cool t-shirt underneath and some boots a tough belt it's a perfect outfit..."
The South Beach boutique features velvet pants and jackets from the funky d-squared line.
And yes real men do wear velvet.
Karen Quinones, En Avance, says "It's for a very fashion forward man who is very confident and they look amazing in them.."
