The velvet revival

velvet-revival

To any of you that survived the 90’s velvet trend, the thought of wearing it again might make you cringe a little. However, the trend second time around is actually not so bad. When worn in a subtle way and with a great cut, velvet can really add that extra edge to your #rootd.

How about this lush fuchsia Opening Ceremony Croc-Embossed Velvet Bomber Jacket? Cute isn’t it? Wear it with a soft grey Cambridge J. Crew cable knit sweater and a pair of dark grey Euro-Star Domino flex riding breeches.

Accessories with a pair of Samshield gloves, a Moschino heart buckle belt and a Marc Jacobs phone case. Best companions for this look are a pair of classic black De Niro field boots and a custom KEP Italia velvet polish cromo T helmet.

Finish the look with a touch of classy vintage style with a second hand Louis Vuitton logo scarf and a MANGO soft grey velvet baseball cap.

Have a stylish ride!

 

Red velvet layer cake

Any good red velvet cake is made up out of scrumptious layers of red forest fruit, soft sponge cake and a sprinkling of dark chocolate. Same goes for this Red velvet layer cake #rootd.

The Tredstep 3rd symphony knee patch breeches in a soft beige shade are is the base layer of your red velvet look. Add on a casual Mountain Khakis Women’s Penny Plaid Shirt, with over that a Rock springs vest by Athleta and add on the last layer for a splash of fresh fruity color with a lightweight J.O.T.T. Chloe terra cotta down jacket.

Add a few more fruity velvety items like the Lacoste premium chantaco coated belt, a Rebecca Minkoff scarf and a Moschino hot pink backpack.

Top it all off with some chocolate details like the KEP Italia Cromo T polish matt helmet, a pair of SSG Gloves and the sporty and functional Alberto Fasciani Pedaso jumping / field boot.

Have a stylish ride!
