This season, velvet is the name of the game; nearly every major designer is featuring velvet dresses, blazers, pants or pantsuits. If you’re lucky, you might already have a velvet favorite or two hanging in your closet. OBJ recommends revving up your velvets, old and new, with a piece of sparkling metallic lace jewelry.

A little bit Victorian, a little bit Punk Rock ‘n’ Roll, this metallic lace and velvet combo is right on-trend for the holidays…and beyond.

Velvet and Lace Accessories

Our friends at Accessories Magazine are reporting that rich fabrics such as velvet and lace are taking the accessories spotlight this fall/winter season: “From chokers to bags, velvet is definitely adding a lush touch to dressing up. Lace is always feminine and often creates a softened look.”

“For Fall 2016 look to an abundance of lace used in jewelry, handbags and even tech cases. This delicate material is given a harder edge when layered and mixed with heavy metals and hardware,” said AM.
