No doubt that one of the hottest trends for this Winter is going to be the velvet pierces. Velvet is a classic that has again taken the fashion world. The latest Fashion Weeks - Rio , Copenhagen and Stockholm , London, Reykjavik, Paris, Milan: in short, it was everywhere. Larissa Cunegundes selected the best looks from all the season. More after the jump.
Lots of Brazilian brands have also invested the velvet trend for this Fall: Águatha, Animale, Farm, Huis Clos, Le Lis Blanc, Reinaldo Lourenço and Tufi Duek are some of the names who invested in the classic fabric.
Let´s start with Huis Clos, which presented a collection inspired by vintage lingerie, everything very beautiful and irresistible to fans of minimalist-chic pieces. Huis Clos used as base a silk velvet worked with a palette of colours consisted of sand, a mix of grays and brown nuances.

Some celebrities and it girls have been a little faster and have already taken their velvet pieces out of the closet for this end of Winter and beginning of Spring. Angelina Jolie wear a black velvet Versace dress with a slit in the side that went all the way up to her hip. Emma Watson, Leighton Meester and our favourite it girl Alexa Chung are just some of the names we could place in our list.

HOW TO WEAR IT:
Day: Skirts are the best option for being discreet. Prefer neutral colours and pop up the colors using your accessories. Might work better than crazy and looking just cheap.

Night: tuxedos, blazers, dresses, pants, dresses - now you can loose touch and go a little crazy! Just do not EVER forget: LESS IS MORE.
- Just mix velvet pieces with the same texture! DO NOT FLIP OUT!
- Combine your velvet pieces with lighter clothing, it is better to combine your velvet pieces with clothings made of simple materials... less is more.. one more time.
- I know some of you are normal people who know how to style yourself, however to the crazy ones, who ignore the weather and the occasion, do not wear velvet when it is too hot. You´re gonna melt.
- And if you are out of shape be careful, sometimes velvet is an eye catcher to our muffin tops.

And for discreet ladies: you can use and abuse of velvet in accessories like shoes, sandals, handbags, ribbons... you all know that when it comes to accessorize a trend, sometimes the result is even better, because it is not so obvious!
