Velvet has been super hot over the winter, and it's not stopping there. Enter: velvet swimsuits for your spring and summer pool days. Now, this isn't the silk or cotton velvet you're familiar with; it's a nylon and lycra stretch velvet that can move with you and quickly dries after getting wet. Have we captured your curiosity? Whether you're ready to dive in head first, or want to dip your toes into this luxurious trend, we've scoured the web to bring you the velvet swimsuits at every price point.
Have you dreamed of strutting down the sidewalks in red-soled Louboutins? Or do you wish you could channel your inner Carrie Bradshaw with a perfect pair of Manolos? Don't think their price point is out of reach, because you can get a pair of pre-loved discount designer shoes for far less than your rent check. Companies like ThredUP and Vestiaire Collective are making luxury shoes, handbags, and accessories more accessible to all of us.
Every month we're picking our favorite finds of pre-owned, great quality, designer bags, shoes, and more... but you're going to have to hurry to snag them before someone else scoops them up!
