Plush Velvet

The Fall season is full of texture, and the world of fashion loves to play on this.  Voluptuous knits, cozy shearling, delicate lace, natty tweeds,  smooth leather, and plush, lush velvet are the textures surrounding us this time around.   Madison Marcus plays up the last category beautifully with their velvet  jacket in a soft steel grey.  Slightly rolled cuffs and an soft shoulder keeps this luxurious throw-on from feeling too formal or stuffy.  A one-button closure and a removable self tie belt continue the relaxed silhouette.  Wear this lovely jacket as a dressy option over a maxi skirt or party dress, or dress it down with a simple black pant or skinny jean.  It adds a nice dose of elegance to the average ensemble along with the rich textural hand that’s so important this season.

The other velvet offering from Madison Marcus this fall is the cozy cuffed short.  Winter shorts are a big trend again this season.  Perfect with bare legs or with tights, this soft, loose pair will carry you well through the holidays.  Velvet, especially in this incarnation, is a fabric you can dress up or down.  Don’t rule these out as an unexpected offering for holiday parties, though it is equally welcome as an every day option.  These garments are both great ways to bring a little more texture into your wardrobes this autumn.
