Untamed Style : Fall 2014 Trend – Velvet

Yay! Our 2nd Untamed Style post is here πŸ˜€

In case you need a refresher,
#untamedstyle was created by fellow plus size blogger Veronica of CID Style File.

“Our hearts will not be tamed and our style shall not be shamed”

That’s our motto πŸ™‚

Since summer has given way to fall,
we felt it fitting to each pick a fall 2014 trend that we liked, off the runway.

My choice?
Plush Velvet

The 90s are back in full force this season so this plush and decadent material has been given a revival.

Here are some velvet looks from the fall runway that I spied :

Of course, this trend transcends beyond clothing.

Chokers, hair turbans, gloves, sunglasses (yes you read that right), ear studs, loafers..I remember having these accessories in velvet in the 90s. Yeah I REALLY loved this trend.

I remember hosting my secondary school’s annual concert. I wore a long burgundy gown with a long sleeved velvet maroon jacket to accompany it. Of course I had a crewcut then so I looked like a contradiction haha but oh I loved that jacket for a long, long time.

I did get a pair of pants in the same shade and remember getting a lot of compliments for this look. This is a similar pair like that one that I found online :

Why do I love velvet so much?
Because the fabric makes one feel like royalty. It’s so soft to touch, mesmerising to look at and Very sexy.

black necklace with feathers – Lovisa
mid-calf boots – H&M

I saw this lush plush beauty of a dress online 6 months ago and I HAD to have it. I didn’t care if it was on trend.
I follow trends that I like and that I think I can carry off. Personal style trumps over trends.

Velvet came in warm tones back in the 90s. So this colour combo was refreshing, and designers have really taken velvet to another level this Fall.
Very impressed with the styling and colours. Kind of like how leather has been reinvented beyond it’s standards black, brown and MJ red πŸ™‚

I felt like this dress had an edge to it hence the boots. I thought the rope necklace with feathers would be a nice touch.

So this was my interpretation of the snug and sophisticated Fall trend that is velvet. I can’t wait to check out my fellow untamed style bloggers’ choices!

Pia Schiavo Campo

That a certain trend cannot be pulled off because of a size, is a gross misconception. Surprise yourself by trying a fall trend that you think suits you. And by that I don’t mean your size, I mean your personal taste and style.

I have another post coming up soon,
will be talking about an initiative I am starting. So stay tuned! πŸ˜‰

all my love,
