Velvet is roaring this winter. From the United States to Europe and everywhere else, you will see girls of all age wearing this luxury fabric in 2017 and styling in various ways. Velvet is very comfortable to wear as well and looks great too. This summer, at my place, it was too hot, and I personally could not consider wearing anything heavier. With autumn, though, many more people began to come out wearing velvet.
Of course, there are many ways to wear velvet and many items of clothing to choose from. There are even velvet shoes and accessories too. The material is perfect for the fall, holiday season, and partying. There are many street style photos that can give us inspiration. Our favorite international and local labels have also come out with many options to wear velvet. It’s going to be safe to buy velvet. I am sure the trend will stick around for a few years at least.
Here are some of the must-have velvet pieces for your wardrobe in my opinion.
Yes, it’s not that easy to pull off a velvet bottom, but if you can style it right, you will be creating an instant impact. It will be truly unforgettable. You can wear wide-leg trousers with chunky platforms, track pants, mini and midi skirts, and more. You can pair the bottom with a basic tee or silk camis to create an effortless vibe.
It can also be velvet cotton fabrics. Cotton velvet is a piled, soft cloth that has a distinctive sheen you cannot miss. The fabric is a popular choice for trousers, skirts, blazers, jackets and gowns.
A velvet top can be the most prized statement piece in your wardrobe. There are plenty of options here as well, such as an oversized hoodie, a boyfriend blazer, v-neck camisole, a party-ready polka dot top, cross over blouse, an off the shoulder top, or a velvet slim turtleneck. The fabric will look good both in short and long sleeves. You can wear a bulky or a slimmer dress. A blazer is of course a top draw in the festive season.
You can wear a velvet dress in the summer too, and look good in it. But I prefer these dresses when it’s a bit colder. You can wear a tee or a hoodie below to get extra warmth. Add a coat over your shoulders to look lush. You can wear a wrap dress, a bodysuit, slip dress, a striped dress, thrive dress with glitter heels, a square neck mini slip dress, which you can wear with your cozy sweater or a statement coat in a minimalist way. There are velvet swimsuits too for the summer.
Shoes and Accessories
There is just the right thing for you – whether slippers, heels or boots. Go for a royal blue, dark wine or burgundy, matching with your velvet outfit. Velvet footwear is going to make even the most basic velvet outfit look more interesting.
For accessories, carry a coffer, crossbody, bucket bag, or even a velvet handbag.
