Sometimes, velvet gets a bad rep as being a cheesy and uncomfortable fabric that reached its peak in the 80s — “Purple Rain,” anybody?

But when done right, velvet is sexy, bold and screams opulence!

You can slay a velvet smoking jacket in an olive, blush or rust hue, saunter in a slinky, velvet dress for late night events or incorporate velvet accessories into your ensemble to add texture to an otherwise basic look.

Plaid is a fall fashion staple — it’s chic, classic and can be easily dressed down or dressed up. Go collegiate with a plaid shirt paired with a fitted blazer, or go all-in with a retro plaid jumpsuit. To take it up a notch, mix and match various plaids for a one-of-a-kind look. Take a look at the color wheel for inspiration on what colors complement each other well.

Monochromatic looks are perfect for the fashionista who likes standing out without doing “too much.” You can certainly wear a monochromatic olive, blush, mustard or rust orange look, but red is the color that’s ruling the runways.

Get a tailored red suit for professional settings, and slay a red lingerie-inspired lace dress for date nights with bae. You can play with various shades of red as well! Cherry reds tend to work on all skin tones, but you can also wear maroon, burgundy or a vibrant red-orange as well.

90s retro


Nineties brands are coming back full force with updated threads. If you’re a 90s baby and saved any of your old FUBU, Fila or Tommy Hilfiger, lucky you! Spruce those items up by mixing them with current trends for a fresh look!
