The velvet suit has long been a favorite of fashion girls stepping out on the town—a funky homage to the '70s while still appearing fresh, fashion-forward, and unwaveringly put-together. With last year's velvet obsession and a rejuvenated appreciation for tailoring, it comes as no surprise that the velvet suit is very much still en vogue, and it's a choice night-out staple of the fashion set.
Cara Delevingne made a splash in a bold blue take on the velvet suit over two years ago, and the following year Beyoncé endorsed the look in a bright orange version. Frame gave the world a velvet cropped flare suit with its Fall 2016 collection, and for Fall 2017 the brand outdid itself with a lively patterned iteration for the ultimate statement-making ensemble. Over the weekend, Diane Kruger showed her support of the time-tested trend, sporting Frame's dark green velvet suit—the blazer slightly oversize and the pants slightly cropped—for a tailored look that's ready to party.
