Velvet has always been a fabric that makes us humans feel a hint of grandeur and royalty—literally. If you trace velvet's history, actual royals and other wealthy people flaunted it, so it’s to no surprise that now that the masses have access to it, we can’t help but feel like 100 bucks (and more) when we wear it. Its soft texture simply screams luxury and elevates our clothing, accessories, and even our furniture. However, for this article, we’re going to stick with velvet clothes and accessories.
From velvet dresses, pants, skirts, overalls, pantsuits, and even boots and purses, if they’re covered in velvet, they certainly have what it takes to make your evening look a memorable one.
