Why Velvet Should Be A Year-Round Fabric

Styling Note: Somewhere... in the shadowy back rooms of fashion houses ... someone decided that fabrics like velvet should be reserved for the winter. Or ... so I like to think. Realistically, people probably decided back before air conditioning was a thing that velvet was too hot for the summer. At the time, that may have been true. But today, air conditioners do exist and velvet has such amazing texture that it would be  a waste to wear it solely in the winter. When you incorporate velvet into an outfit, it instantly adds depth and sheen to an ensemble. The way light catches the fabric is great for photogtaphs.  For this post, I opted to pair a short sleeve velvet kimono with a chiffon maxi. It was a nice way to incorporate the fabric without being overwhelmed by it

"I see the moon
 I see the moon
 I see the moon
 Oh when you're looking at the Sun
 Not a fool
 I'm not a fool
 Not a fool
 No, you're not fooling anyone

 Oh but when you're gone
 When you're gone
 When you're gone
 Oh, baby, all the lights go out
 Thinking oh that, baby, I was wrong
 I was wrong
 I was wrong

 Come back to me, baby, we can work this out
 Oh baby come on, let me get to know you
 Just another chance so that I can show
 That I won't let you down, oh no
 No, I won't let you down, oh no
 Cause I could be the one
 I could be the one" Be The One, Dua Lipa
