national velvet

Everyone is infatuated with all things velveteen. It's a beautifully delicate texture that begs to be felt. The mere thought of the word invokes images of cuddly stuffed rabbits (saddest book EVER!), creepy '70s dolls with perfect hair, and the smooth sounds of Lou Reed and Nico. Now, with winter and holidays just around the corner, we think of shorts, dresses, skirts, and leggings. The velour trend is in full-swing, and it's the perfect fancy touch to any holiday outfit or just an extra special addition to a pair of denim or a tee.

Velour-wearer beware: Don't be weirded out when people want to touch your new silky soft blazer.
