Velvet has continued to make an appearance on the store racks, runways, and celebrities as one of this season' top trends. Traditionally reserved for nineties fashion and fancy cocktail parities, velvet can easily be incorporated into your every day wardrobe. Its super soft and cozy texture make it perfect for this cold winter, yet chic and sexy when styled just right. I've teamed up with 5 bloggers to share our favorite style tips for wearing this season's velvet trend.
The Velvet Skater Dress
The velvet skater dress is an absolute wardrobe must because of its simple silhouette and versatility. For a more effortless vibe, I paired my homemade dress with ankle boots, tights, and a felt hat. A choker and a pair of matching drop earrings gave this sleek, black look a bit of sparkle without making the outfit too fancy. Pair it with tights and boots for a cozy, casual look or slip on some heels for a night out.
Velvet Burnout Duster
Looking for something very different and unique? Try this velvet burnout duster worn by Kelsi. Its the perfect finishing touch to take the everyday jeans and t-shirt to a chic and sophisticated look. Paired with a pair of earth tone ankle boots and Kelsi is ready for anything the day has to offer.
Chelsea shares how simple it is to combine velvet leggings with the rest of your wardrobe. First she pairs these chic bottoms with a pink blouse and flats. The mixing of textures doesn't make the look feel so dated or overdressed. Next she spices things up with a velvet brocade cape over a simple black tank and a pair of silver heels. The velvet on velvet look takes the leggings from day to night while the glitter shoes add that extra hint of glam.
Velvet makes even a simple camisole look more modern and elegant. Jenna paired this pretty pink velvet camisole with jeans, knee boots, and a sweater for a seriously cool and cozy outfit. The pairing of textures makes a major style statement taking the look for casual to chic.
Gabby takes the long cardigan trend to the next level in velvet form. This silky, soft jacket is the perfect finishing touch to any outfit making it feel instantly more luxurious. You can pair this long velvet cardigan with so many things, but Gabby makes it super clean with her all white denim and top. The colors in her necklace and tote complete her look by pulling together the blue velvet with the white denim.
Jody keeps her look crisp and chic by pairing her velvet top with a color pair of pants and black ankle boots. The sheer sleeves and loose cut of this top make the unseasonal fabric perfect for year round style. Her look is perfect for the office or daytime errands, but can easily elevated to a night out by adding heels, a clutch, and some sparkle.
