I have been following menswear at New York Fashion Week closely and one trend that has really stood out is the velvet trousers. Well, trend of velvet trousers with tuxedo in a formal setting has always been a there but now the designers are pushing the trend down into everyday wear.
The look is urban, athletic and very casual/semi-formal. Pair your velvet pants with a simple button down shirt, a chunky sweater or a blazer and you are right on trend. The point is to treat them like your regular slim fitted cotton chinos. Just be vary of going over flashy.
Caution: The trend is not for the weak-hearted but neither is fashion.
And there was plenty of velvet on display at the runways of Milan and London as well.
