Have you noticed this year fall trends are all about textures? From faux fur to suede and leather to lace, heck even corduroy is making a mark in the trend guides! Yessssss, girl! Of course, there is one fabric that that is always a holiday go to! This opulent find is velvet.

And before you begin to think velvet is just for the holidays, I’m doing what I do best-rounding up 15 plus size velvet pieces you will want to rock now and through the holiday season!

On trend this moment, designers and brands just can’t seem to get enough of this soft, rich fabric. From chokers, shoes and booties to moto jackets and full length trench coats.

I believe there are no rules when it comes to velvet. It’s the type of fabric that just has several personalities — ’70s rocker chic, sexy, playful, fashion risk-taker and festive. It’s just as versatile as the white shirt -mix and match it with denim, metallic, lace and even leather. You can dress it up or down and it transitions easily into your fall and winter wardrobe.
