Although velvet is usually synonymous with special occasions, think beyond formal wear. Try and wear velvet in an everyday look to add a glam touch to any outfit. That being said, velvet also works well with classic wardrobe staples. The best way to wear something you’re unfamiliar with is to pair it with non-trendy, classic pieces like opaque tights, denim and basic cotton shirts – try wearing these pieces with velvet items if you’re hesitant. While classic black velvet pieces are always a safe bet, don’t be afraid to try bold colors. There are tons of velvet pieces out there in beautiful jewel tones like emerald green and royal blue that can make such a stylish impact.
Fabletics launches its very first Velour collection, and the campaign stars actress Vanessa Hudgens. What do you think about these combinations? Velvet is not just for formal occasions, you can wear it every day, just try not to exaggerate, opt for one velvet piece, which is enough. A must have is the suit, followed by the velvet dress: the midi or pleated version is really cute. Not the most obvious daytime fabric of choice. However, if the sequin trend is anything to go by, the lines between “evening” and “daytime” are starting to blur. I’ve been slightly ambivalent about the headband trend that’s suddenly spiked over the last few months. It’s very Blair Waldorf/Joy aged 7, but it works, just give it a try!
The more I experimented, the more I realised how perfect velvet is for adding that certain je ne sais quoi to an outfit.
