Dresses made from the velvet fabric are a simple yet effect way to get the look, just pair it with some patent heels for a night out. The velvet fashion trend is increasing rapidly as we see more and more pieces begin to be created using the luxurious material. The Fall 2012 runways proved the fabric is no longer reserved for regal costumes and '80s theme parties. Velvet dresses, tops, scarves, bags and blazers are sophistication and aristocracy clothing fabric. As always, Celebrity is on top of the trend (Kate Middleton, Kim Kardashian, Jessica Alba, Angelina Jolie has been hitting up velvet for days! Remember this perplexing glove dress?).
