this is about the only time of year when velvet is appropriate, so embrace it now! it's warm, it's cozy and feels so yummy. but make sure you put away your velvet items before the weather gets warm. velvet+warm weather=fashion faux pas. the jackets listed below are great layering pieces and can be worn with pants, skirts or dresses making them very versatile. and like other "special" fabrics (sequins, leather, suede, animal print), only wear one velvet item at a time.
