Whenever I see anything velvet, I think: what an ancient trend to pull back from the past. But like a number of other timeless trends, the velvet obsession has stood the test of time and is now as popular as ever.
I'll admit that I wasn't feeling it at first, especially after I saw a pair of velvet pumps that reminded me of the slippers my grandmother used to use as a weapon of discipline. But ever since I saw Lana Condor's character in To All the Boys I've Loved Before sport a pink velvet top, I've been warming up to the idea of wearing it, and so here are my favourite picks so far.
Since animal print is already in, might as well rock a velvet snakeskin skirt to make a statement.

When I'm trying out a new trend to wear, accessories are my best friend. If you don't like it, you haven't spent that much money on it plus you can pass it on to a friend without worrying about size and fit.
How cute is this choker?
