Velvet, fancy and glossy, is perfect for the winter and the holiday season. I wear velvet often this time of the year when I want to show glamour, elegance and style. Sometimes, the fabric can also look vintage, and so I wear it when I want to show retro. There are so many ways of wearing velvet. It glams up almost any outfit.
Here are some of the coolest ways of wearing velvet this season.
Velvet Coats and Dress
Velvet dresses look very nice in a range of shades – midnight blue, burgundy, and black among others. You can wear one to a holiday party or a date night. A velvet dress can be good for the office too, provide you keep the silhouette simple. Dressy ones may not be apt as the shiny and smooth fabric will appear party-like. Muted heels or a wide belt in contrasting texture can help you balance the outfit.
And of course, velvet coats are legendary. They are so perfect for the winter. You can also wear a plaid dress, combining two popular trends of the season to look cute. Your plaid velvet dress will be totally glam and perfect for the occasion. You can wear it with lace-up booties and black tights.
Luxury Velvet Fabric Tops
Velvet is very comfortable to wear as well. When silk is included in the making, it becomes a true pleasure to wear the luxurious velvet fabric. Its natural sheen and soft drape is sure to please you. A top can be the perfect velvet wear. You can easily give your outfit a spin by wearing it with denim or by wearing a velvet crop top underneath your overalls. Match the top with a high-slit maxi skirt for that feminine look.
As a second option, you can wear a long-sleeve top with a high-waist skirt. If you are thinking of wearing a velvet jacket, go for styles with fuss-free and clean looks.
This season, the oversized trend is doing very well. Wear a velvet pant or maxi dress to pull off the look with élan. You won’t look sloppy at all. And of course, a velvet pant is always going to look so much more exciting. The unique texture of velvet makes it a good choice for the winter. You can wear it with a coat, blazer, or a leather coat. For a casual look, you can wear a velvet jogger. Wear your jogger with flats, and a vintage tee.
A velvet jumpsuit always looks awesome at holiday parties. It’s a practical option as well when you have to dress quickly and don’t have too many fresh ideas. There are so many color options – emerald green, red, classic blue, brown, maroon, and others.
