MARIGOLD CUT-OUT TURTLENECK: c/o A.L.C.  |  VELVET tuxedo PANTS: Veronica Beard (sold out in gold, however virtually identical dupe HERE!) |  PEEP-TOE MULES: old, similar here  |  MULTI JEWEL-TONED BAG: Tory Burch  |  SCULPTURAL EARRINGS: Amber Sceats

Taking the number 9 spot in our trend Memo series is the trend that’s probably already blowing up your Instagram feed—VELVET.  Back with a vengeance from last year’s quick entrance on the scene, the velvets of this season are a lot more elevated than ever before.  We’re talking velvet suits, dresses, full-length dusters, block-heel pumps as well as even velvet hair ties (which I’m absolutely digging, BTW).

Before we dive in, one game-changing PSA: Today’s cut-out sweater as well as these perfect A.L.C. gold velvet trousers are from Neiman Marcus’s killer CUSP line.  elegant week at Neiman is happening ideal NOW, so all CUSP items are 25% off through October 8th with code CHICWEEK.  If you haven’t taken a look at the CUSP collection before, let me be the first to tell you that it is to die for, so hop to!

This cut-out turtleneck by A.L.C. is quickly one of my favorite purchases of the season, as well as while I love me a elegant monochromatic look, just wait ’til you try this sucker on with blue jeans.  With a bold cherry red lip, the color combo is dynamite.  Marigold yellows are an massive color trend this season—part of the emphasis on all things jewel-toned—and when it pertains to the color of the season, they are definitely in the running for the primary spot… err… the gold, if you will.

You’d be hard-pressed not to notice that the top trends this season inter-mix like conjoined twins.  Today’s opulent Veronica Beard velvet tuxedo pants are a gorgeous melange of today’s featured velvet trend with two other standouts of this series: yesterday’s jewel tones and the luxe leisure trend from Day 2.  With sporty rock-out vibes as well as pajama feels, these luscious beauties are as comfortable as they are beautiful.  Everybody as well as their sister need to agree, since regrettably the marigold is sold out anywhere (you can still snag them in black), however these gold A.L.C. trousers are the best dupe.

Continuing on the jewel tones vibe, cue this to. die. for. Tory Burch chain-link bag (also here in a gorgeous black as well as blue combo).  I alerted you yesterday that you’d be seeing a lot of this sucker, as well as I wasn’t kidding.  likewise on the accessory front, sculptural earrings are trending huge time, as well as it doesn’t get any type of much better than these sensational Amber Sceats beauties.  I’m likewise eyeing up these babies which are on sale!
