The fashion girl's fabric du jour this past fall and winter was undoubtedly velvet—what's not to love about the sumptuous textured fabric? But its rich quality is just the thing to make velvet's biggest proponents shy away in warmer months because heavy, clingy garments are no one's first choice in spring and summer. However, if the fabric is rendered in a delicate strappy tank that merely skims the body (read: doesn't trap in heat and sweat), the beloved trend is given a second chance.
Take Chrissy Teigen's recent ensemble, for one—a low-cut tank and distressed jeans allow for some welcome ventilation, while a breezy satin robe punctuates the boudoir vibes of the look. Once things really heat up, copy Chrissy's equation without the jacket and you have an (almost) heatproof look—high ponytail included. Scroll to see and shop her look.
