“Florals for summer? Groundbreaking,” drawled Miranda Priestly. What about velvet? How’s that for pushing the envelope?

Velvet has always been a mainstay for fall/winter. But this time, it’s having an extended moment well into spring and summer.
Many designers — from Stella McCartney to Victoria Beckham — are starting to see the potential for this lush texture to be worn beyond the winter season.
As this trend continues going strong, celebrities from Rita Ora to Kendall Jenner, Olivia Palermo to Lily Donaldson are jumping on the velvet bandwagon, along with the rest of the fashion crowd spotted on the streets of Milan, Paris, and New York.
Watch how this winter staple shapes up for summer:

5. Embrace Prints
What’s glammer than velvet? Velvet in prints. Tiger print can be tricky to pull off even in the hands of the most skilled fashionista. But of course Alexa Chung would make it work. Her glam rock vibes in this two-piece Roberto Cavalli velvet suit takes her velvet to another level.
If animal print is too bold for you, you can’t go wrong with good old florals for spring (despite what Miranda Priestly said) or a tropical print for summer.
Try this style.
