When talking about the trends for this autumn-winter 18/19 season, animal print is one of the first that comes to mind next to chequered and polka dot prints, it’s definitely what is all over our social media feeds. But this season trends are not limited to prints, we can also find it in different shapes and fabrics.

Today we want to introduce you to some of those fabrics or textures that will be your best allies when putting together the trendiest outfits this season. Also, some tips on how to combine them. Take a look!

Velvet

Velvet has a certain vintage feel to it, it’s a fabric born far East, it’s one of the most difficult fabrics regarding production, therefore in past times this fabric was related to high class and was viewed as a symbol of elegance.

How to wear it?

It’s a safe bet for almost any special occasion due to its shine finish. It can a little more difficult to add to our everyday looks. Want an elegant and casual look? Don’t push velvet aside. Go for a velvet bomber with a sporty cut, combine it with a white shirt with writing on it, your favourite pair of jeans and some trainers or booties. If you would rather wear velvet on the bottom part of your outfit, try it with a turtleneck knit jumper that will balance the outfit giving it a more minimal flare. Also, dark tones (except black) are more versatile and discreet.

Corduroy

It holds certain similar traits with velvet, but with a more casual and street touch. This fabric is perfect for winter, it was first tough for male fashion but has ended up conquering all fashion types.
