Hello everyone! For this week #FeaturedFriday, the lovely Cynthia from Pinch Of Chic will be sharing with us her favourite trend this season. If you haven’t already, follow her blog and her Instagram. We love her and her fashion! Let’s see what Cynthia has to say!
If there’s a trend that I’m all over but unfortunately don’t have enough pieces of..it’s velvet.
A material so chic, screams old Hollywood glam and is comfy—this is the trend wagon you want to ride on.
From simple choker neck candy to bold jumpsuits, this trend has proven to be extremely diverse and not only reserved for just the evenings.

There is a slight edgy yet elegant factor when wearing out this trend—especially if you’re pairing a velvet slip dress with some sleek black leather booties or Mary Jane platforms, as seen on the runways like Gucci, Chanel and Lanvin.
Just to name drop a few celebrities that have successfully pull this trend off:
Shea Marie of Peace Love Shea in her velvet boots (which are on my hit list to get) and velvet jacket
Kendall Jenner working her deep V green velvet dress. (I have a soft spot for Green Velvet, the musician as well, haha!…. Funny…)
