From long-sleeved minis to gowns, the plush fabric isn’t going anywhere — and there are so many ways you can try the trend! SHOP our picks and read our tips if you want to try the velvet trend.
Not only was velvet a major trend for Fall 2014, but the look is here to say! We just wrapped New York Fashion Week, where we saw the Fall 2015 collections, which featured major 70s flare — which included velvet detailing, of course. If you’re looking a way to dress up your winter get-up, why not try a velvet dress? The great thing about the trend is that you can find a silhouette and shade that works best for you — and you can easily dress it up or down.
Velvet Dresses & Outfit Ideas — SHOP The Runway Trend:
Not only is the trend hot on the runway, but it also took the red carpet by storm, with everyone from Anna Kendrick to Lea Michele sporting the style. If you want to totally glam it up, why not try a form-fitting mini or a strapless velvet frock? Many people may think velvet and the strapless silhouette don’t mix, but that clearly isn’t the case — simply take a page out of Lea’s book! While you can pair it with a pair of pumps, you could also give it a retro vibe and dress it down by pairing it with tights and boots. I also love the way a long-sleeved, a-line velvet frock would look with over-the-knee boots and a wide-brim hat.
Whether you are looking for a great dress for a Saturday night or you’re trying to find a cool, casual winter look, you can’t go wrong trying the velvet trend. Check out our picks in every price range, (and silhouette!), and SHOP for a hot velvet frock right here.
