Converse

No longer reserved just for winter, velvet is appearing in collections year-round. Once associated with everything tacky and dated, the luxe fabric is now bringing texture to otherwise ordinary designs by everyone from affordable brands like Urban Outfitters, to sports and streetwear companies like adidas, and of course, luxury fashion houses like Gucci and Dries Van Noten.

Velvet pieces are here to stay, which is great news for those who want to live their best luxe life every day of the week. Just be warned that people are going to want to stroke you. If you’re ready to take that risk and elevate your wardrobe by playing with textures, look no further. We’ve collected the 15 best pieces available for you to shop right now.

Fans of the material can cover themselves from head to toe if they so desire, with outerwear, shirts, pants, and even sneakers being constructed in the soft material. Some standouts include the black mockneck sweater from Maison Margiela, the Cav. Empt paneled mesh jacket, a Needles butterfly embroidered T-shirt, and of course the quilted GOLF le FLEUR* x Converse pack.
