The holiday season calls for outfits that are a little more festive and formal than your everyday ensembles. One easy way to accomplish a more dressed-up look this holiday season is to stock up on velvet dresses, a holiday-ready fabric that’s timeless and gets chicer every year.

Today we’re sharing an assortment of styles from little black dresses in the luxe material to long-sleeve options with the chicest details sure to keep you warm. Whether you plan to style the dress with statement heels and earrings or a pair of cool (and comfortable) block-heel boots with layers of gold necklaces, these are the dresses to have on our radar—we already do.
