Velvet for fall? Not entirely groundbreaking, but there’s a reason the fabric returns season after season. Not only is it timeless, but it’s also so decadent and luxe that it instantly elevates any outfit. Already wildly popular among the fashion-girl set right now, we’re taking cues for them for how to style velvet in the winter months ahead.
First, try dressing it down. Pairing sneakers with a velvet dress can make it look more casual for a daytime look. Next, try trading out some of your everyday basics for a velvet version. The plush fabric can take a standard closet staple like a blazer and make it feel sophisticated and ready for the evening. And finally, try wearing it from head to toe. With a matching top and pants or a jumpsuit, it’s the perfect way wear a bold look for a night out.
