The Velvet Edit

  • March 9 2017

    What’s So Great About Stripes? Everything.

    STRIPE-COLLAGE-4
    At Velvet, we’re mad for stripes
    . Every collection features a least a handful of pieces—whether it’s our classic
    cotton slub or luxe cashmere—that shows off this classic linear look. So, where did this simply chic style come from, and what has made it one of the most enduring trends of all time?

     

    Like many great things in fashion, the stripe was first launched onto the style radar by Coco Chanel back in 1917. She was inspired by the sailor’s uniforms while on a trip to the north west coast of France. Upon her return to Paris, the iconic designer incorporated these striped tops into her nautical collection—the classic “Breton stripe” fashion staple was born. The name came from the region, Bretagne, or Brittany in english, and this humble navy and white long-sleeve top has now become as much of a wardrobe basic as boyfriend jeans
    and the LBD.

     

    Since then, the Breton Stripe has been worn by everyone—from the dreamy James Dean in the 1955 film Rebel Without A Cause to Kate Moss running errands about London—and while the styling choices have evolved, the classic effect has remained the same. Always clean, always striking and a unisex style slam dunk.

    Finally, when wearing stripes, there a couple of style cues we love for this season.

     

    1) For spring/summer we’re loving the combo of a striped top with white denim—a classic look but feels super fresh.

     

    2) Stripes are our favorite layering pieces—a short tee under an army jacket or a long-sleeve stripe tee with a button-up shirt on top.

     

    3) Don’t be afraid to mix your stripe with other prints, think of this classic graphic as a neutral and try it with a small print floral or plaid; just keep your whole look in a similar color family and all will be stunning.

    10 Resort Travel Essentials

     

    WHETHER YOU'RE A FREQUENT FLIER OR HITTING THE HIGHWAY, GETTING PERFECTLY PACKED IS ALWYAS THE SECRET TO A STRESS-FREE VACATION (AND GREAT OUTFITS). ONCE YOU KNOW THE TRICKS, PACKING WILL BE A BREEZE, AND WE GUARANTEE YOU'LL HAVE A BIT OF SPACE IN YOUR BAG FOR A SPOT OF SHOPPING. HERE'S HOW:

     

    1. A WEEKENDER BAG
    Even if you’re an organized whiz, it’s always a good idea to bring a bag that allows for a bit of traveling chaos. A weekender is the perfect carry-all to stash everything you need without weighing down your handbag, and you’ll use it all year round (summer, Thanksgiving, your best friends wedding etc…trust us).

     

    2. LAYERING TANKS AND TEES
    Stash a couple of basic tops and camisoles in your bag to ensure that you’re fully covered -- literally and figuratively. Think black, nude or white as these are easy to style and the perfect underpinning for semi-sheer shirts or dresses. Also, a white tank under a sharp, black blazer is one of our favorite looks of all time. Shop Velvet Basics here.

     

    3. CLASSIC SWEATERS
    Yes, they take up a little extra space in your suitcase, but so worth it. Pack at least two sweaters — black and white cashmere styles are ideal — to wear with jeans, leggings and skirts. Crewnecks and v-necks work well with basic button downs, while lightweight turtleneck sweaters look especially chic layered beneath a velvety slip dress.

    4. UNDIES FOR ALL OCCASIONS
    Fancy lingerie is dreamy, but don’t forget to pack a range of pretty yet functional undergarments too—cute bralettes in prints and patterns look sweet peeking out from under layers, and can also double as a bathing suit in a pinch.

    5. CHIC SLEEP
    While boxer shorts and a well-worn tank may suit your sleep needs at home, why not invest in some pretty PJs if you’re traveling (it also eliminates the mad scramble to find the hotel robe when room service knocks). Silky or cotton pajama sets are always winners.

     

    6. TOP NOTCH DENIM
    Jeans are the gold-star, thumbs-up, must-have travel partner. However, we suggest skipping the  skintight fits and low-rise silhouettes that can leave you feeling constricted if you’ll be sitting on a plane for hours. A slim-fitting darker jean with a mid-rise waistline and just a hint of stretch is our choice for extended travels.

    7. DOWNTIME BASICS
    Every vacation has a little free time so don’t forget to pack some casual faves. Whether you’re strolling the streets or just lounging by a pool, a pair of joggers and a loose top, hoodie or classic button down looks easy chic without sacrificing style. (View our off duty wear.)

     

    8. FLATS AND SNEAKS
    Even if high heels are your go-to shoes for life, you’ll want to pack at least one pair of go-anywhere flats or cool, retro sneaks for day trips and museum jaunts. For colder climates, be sure to add a pair of winter-ready boots and wooly socks to your carry-on.

    9. BLACK LEGGINGS
    Leggings win the travel game for a few reasons. A.) They’re comfy; B.) They’re versatile and can double as pants; and C.) They take up zero room in your bag. Look for slightly heftier fabrics to ensure that they are fully opaque and structured enough to mimic dress pants.

     

    10. THE ULTIMATE TOPPER
    It goes without saying, and its well-worth repeating: Chic, well-fitting outerwear is perhaps the most important thing you can bring with you (aside from your toothbrush). Choose the right coat or jacket based on your destination’s seasonal weather — and pack a trench or a heavy cardigan even if you’re going someplace warm—nights can get chilly in hotspots like L.A. or Oahu, and you’ll want to be fully covered for your travel itinerary.
