FashionMVP Trend of the Week: Velvet

It’s a fabric typically reserved for holiday time but velvet is officially cutting the line this fall, meaning there’s no time like the present to get in on the trend. No longer the stuff of your pouf-sleeved childhood party dresses (white tights and maryjanes, anyone?), the plush pieces of today are decidedly stylish, sexy, and cool.

Try pairing this fancy fabric with denim, menswear suiting, leather or lace. From slip dresses to ankle boots, there’s a way to work the fabric for day or night – and well before winter rolls around. Because who wants to wait that long to add some luxe to their look anyway? Ahead, 10 ways to get that velvet vibe in your life ASAP.

FashionFall Bestsellers

Complete with endless dress options, fresh office chic finds and one-piece wonders, fall is our favorite season when it comes to fashion. We’ve rounded our favorite fall bestsellers that we can’t wait to wear all season long.

Fall Bestsellers

Dresses

These bestselling dresses will take you into fall and beyond. Trade in your tights this fall for a pair of over-the-knee boots to take your look from basic to breathtaking. This simple change will take your fall favorites like the Sway, Girl, Sway! Swing Dress and I. Madeline Garden Splendor Navy Floral Dress through the seasons seamlessly. Heading to a formal event this fall? The Best is Yet to Come Burgundy Dress is not only in one of our favorite fall tones, but the backless detailing and cape sleeves will add a touch of drama to your look.

Fall Bestsellers

Jumpsuits

Get a leg up this season with chic one and done jumpsuits. From backless stunners to off-the-shoulder silhouettes, our jumpsuit collection will have you looking stylish for any occasion this fall. Our bestselling Thinking Out Loud Backless Jumpsuit was a crowd favorite at our Lulus Style Studio event during NYFW. Another customer favorite, the Enticing Endeavors Jumpsuit, can effortlessly take you from the office to happy hour. If you can’t get enough of the off-the-shoulder trend this year, our Alleyoop Jumpsuit is the one for you.

Fall Bestsellers

Back to work

Dress like the boss you are this fall and fill your wardrobe with pieces that are smart and chic. Our Shift and Shout Dress, available in eight colors, is the perfect foundation to your office chic look. We’re loving this work staple in the must-wear color of fall, navy blue. Another fall favorite that every working girl needs in her closet is a blazer. Statement sleeves, lovely lavender hues, and luxe satin are just a few of our favorite ways to upgrade your classic black blazer to your new favorite statement item. Dress up our Miss Punctuality Blazer with a classic striped top like the Anything is Posh-ible White Striped Top. Stripes are the equivalent to what a white t-shirt used to be back in the day, and is the perfect print to add some personality to your workwear this fall.

FashionHomecoming Accessories to Complete Your Look

Last week on the blog we gave you homecoming LBDs under $50 and some serious homecoming outfit inspo. Now that you’ve (hopefully!) found the dress of your dreams, we’re here to help you pick out the perfect homecoming accessories to complete your look!

Homecoming Accessories: Hair

Don’t forget about those locks! Hair accessories are one of our favorite trends at the moment, and what a better night to rock one than homecoming! Whether you’re having your hair done or styling it yourself, hair accessories are the easiest way to elevate your look with minimal effort. If you’re going for a more simple hair style, the Moon and Sky Gold Rhinestone hair clip is perfect for clipping a few pieces back for a more finished look, while hair combs are essential for dressing up a half up do! Or if you’d like an elegant updo, add a headband like our Breathtaking Grey and Silver Rhinestone headband for bit more sparkle.

Homecoming Accessories: Clutches

A cute clutch is the perfect piece pull your look together. This season at the Lulus HQ, we just can’t get enough of rich textures, elegant embellishments and magical metallics. Our On a Roll Velvet Clutch, available in four fall tones, is sure to add style points to your homecoming ensemble. Plus, with a roomy interior and a detachable shoulder strap, this bag is as functional as it is cute. Pearl embellishments are having a serious moment this fall, which is why we love the In Your World Beige Pearl Clutch. A combination of neutral tones and faux pearls in gold settings will add a touch of elegance to your look. Lastly, our Reflected Image Rose Gold Mirrored Clutch is sure to make you shine like a star this homecoming.

Homecoming Accessories: Jewelry

The best part of accessorizing any outfit is adding a little sparkle and shine to your look with wow-worthy jewelry. No matter what style of dress you decided on for homecoming this year, we’re sure to have a piece of jewelry that will compliment it. For a chic, minimalist look, pair a low neckline with a layered drop necklace such as the Modern Minimalist Gold Layered Collar Necklace. If the dress you’ve chosen features a high neck or embellishments near the neckline, we suggest opting for a statement earring like the Queen Of The Isle Gold Earrings. Or add some serious glamour to your homecoming look, while staying on trend, with our Glitz on the Rocks Silver Rhinestone Choker Necklace.
