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:

1. Slouchy Outerwear
While velvet typically only makes an appearance in fall or winter, summery versions of velvet now come in the form of bralettes, slouchy blazers, and robes that are all loose and laid-back in silhouette.
For an off-duty evening out in town, a graphic tee and velvet bomber or robe are all you need for the casual-glam look.
Try this style.
