Velvet is no longer just for fancy holiday parties! Velvet wrap and slip dresses, trousers, pumps and sandals in rich fall shades of green, wine and navy including prints have been spotted in the fashion capitals. These last few weeks of Indian summer weather transitioning into a glorious fall foliage season have brought out the best of the new “must have” material. And yes, it will still look good going into the holiday season.
