How to Wear Velvet Post - Party Season


Velvet is a rich, dense fabric. Wear it the wrong way and you could look like your grandmother’s curtains or one of Harry Potter’s classmates from Hogwarts.  Just because the holiday season is over doesn’t mean you have to shove all your party pieces into the depths of your closet just yet—especially those velvet items. With the right styling tips, this luxe-looking fabric can be the key to taking your 2016 style to the next level.

  • Keep it casual by draping a velvet jacket over your shoulders.
  • Go bold at work with luxe wide-leg pants.
  • Try something understated like a skirt in a simple silhouette for a night out.
You can also add velvet extras and still have fun with velvet without overdoing it.  A bag or shoes in this sultry fabric is one way to capitalize on-trend without getting carried away by it.  Velvet is not only for the evening.  Velvet jeans are great for the day. Throw on a t-shirt with your jeans for a more relaxed, but still luxurious feel.
