Velor Pants

  • Category FASHION



Promoted to major material

Velour had its big break in the autumn and winter of 2016. It satisfied the keyword of this season of “adult retro”, and it is a material appropriate for the big trend of vintage style. The flexible luster is textile that recently brings a luxury feeling.

Popularity in bottoms

Outerwear, tops, accessories, and various items have been made in velour, but this season the popularity is concentrated in bottoms. Silhouettes that can be seen often on the street are the well-known “wide pants.” It could be said that the bottoms reflect the most fused trend of “luxury,” “retro,” and “looseness.” Maybe due to materials having a flashy image on the street, there was a high percentage of selection of dark colors like black, navy, and brown. For the outfit to not become too refined, it is makes an impression to make it tone it down with other items like denim jackets and sneakers.


To your tastes

If you look at brands that are being worn, there are various sources, like the cool “JEANASIS” and the natural “niko and…” Because there is a wide range of prices, you can choose something that fits your own height. More than half of people wearing items other than bottoms, like one-pieces and overalls, have been purchasing them at secondhand shops. I would like those of you who say, “I don’t want to wear the same thing as other people” to definitely persevere and find a velour item that suits your tastes.

There is the perspective that it will end being short-lived, and one will get quickly get tired of just impact, individuality, and habit. However, if the trend keywords of “retro, looseness” continue next season, the popular velour might not go out of fashion.
