To trend or not to trend? That is the question.
Well when the trends are full of velvet and pearls, trend I shall! Today I’m joining up with Memphis Mandy Sue to bring you two major style trends for fall/winter.
Velvet and pearls add such lush, feminine flair to everything. It’s hard not to love them. And I don’t know about you, but velvet just screams wintertime to me, especially Christmas! It’s a fabric that I don’t think truly ever goes out of style. But this year it’s making its presence very well known, showing up on anything from dresses to hats to shoes. These velvet flats of mine are from Target and I love the bright, bold hue! And Target kills it once again with Amanda’s velvet, pleated skirt. So, so cute!

Pearl details are also super big for fall/winter 17. We’re seeing a lot of pearl embellished pieces, which I why I thought this bag from Boohoo was perfect. It’s just enough pearl embellishment to add some pizazz, but subdued enough for someone who’s not ready to rock some pearl embellished jeans. Amanda’s top has pretty pearl embellishments as well and would be an easy way to add this trend to your wardrobe.

There are so many ways to style the velvet and pearl trends. You can go completely girlie and feminine like Amanda’s outfit, smart and casual like my outfit, or edgy by adding touches of leather. Throw on some pearl embellished combat boots with a velvet mini and you’ve got the perfect combination of feminine and edgy while mixing our two favorite trends!
As with any trend, I prefer not to invest too much money into something that I may just wear for one season. That’s why places like Target and H&M are so great. They allow us the opportunity to take part in some of the fun trends without investing all of our hard earned cash. Win win!
I hope you’ve enjoyed my collaboration with Amanda! Remember to check out her blog, memphismandysue.com, and follow her on Instagram @memphismandysue!
