The look and feel of velvet continues to capture our hearts and closets this fall—this luxury fabric manages to straddle the line between classic glamour and easy allure; a new option for the day while always being a great choice for evening.

“Velvet is the perfect material to transition into the fall and winter season,” says Kat Lozhnikova, the stylist who put together the looks in our latest catalog (see below). “It’s easy to mix into your wardrobe whether you’re a bohemian spirit or more edgy.” And while our embroideries are always given the same meticulous detailing and design each season, when topping off a rich velvet they have an extra stand-out appeal. Here’s how to style our new fall favorites whether you’re brunching, working or out for the evening.
Style tip: Don’t forget velvet when dressing up. “Velvet is often overlooked in favor of sequins and sparkle, yet it’s the easiest way to get glam.”
Style tip: Velvet paired with our signature embroideries is an autumn essential. “The Johnny Was velvets have such rich finish, they look modern and vintage at the same time, as well as being the perfect canvas for some embroidery.”
Style tip: “The easiest way to dress down velvet is to mix in more casual pieces or silhouettes. Here, we paired this shirt with leggings, but I also love to mix velvet with a vintage tee, denims or sneakers.”
Style tip: The rich fall palette of spicy browns, burgundy and black gives velvet an extra dose of luxe. These new neutrals also go easily from day-to-night.
