The Trend Report: Royal Velvet

Make like the royals this season in a fabric traditionally associated with nobility: velvet. The beloved textile has been around for some time, (Alannah Miles' '80s hit "Black Velvet," anyone?), but lately we're seeing a major resurgence of the cloth. You'll can find it everywhere from dresses and tops to shoes and bags this winter--it's even infiltrated our makeup bags in the form of velvety smooth lipstick and eyeshadows. This feel-good fabric can be made from silk, cotton, linen, mohair and other synthetic fabrics, so its price points vary, but there's plenty of affordable options available. As always, Brad's Deals knows just where to find it on the cheap, so although we may never be royals (at least according to Lorde), we can certainly do our best impressions.
