Wools and knits may be the most widely preferred fabrics to wear in the winters, but after a point, they get boring too! Especially when it comes to winter festive outfits, sporting knits would just look blah after a point. This is where velvet steps in–the quintessential winter festive staple that has been around since years and yet, women fear wearing it because if you go wrong, it can end up looking too costume-y.
Fret not ladies, as we handpicked 5 velvet pieces that’ll never go wrong! Scroll down to see what they are…
Velvet skater skirts
We love skater skirts as they’re perfect for parties and accentuate your curves like nothing else! Be it leather, suede or knit–skater skirts are a fashion staple that everyone loves. So why not add to your collection with a velvet one? We love this cute pink velvet skirt from Forever 21 that can be dressed up or dressed down as you like it!
This velvet top in a gorgeous midnight blue instantly caught our eye. We love the criss-cross detailing and the fact that it’s not too OTT. Style it with a casual pair of boyfriend jeans (or any other pair of jeans for that matter) and heels to nail your party look! You can purchase this from Zara!
If you’re worried about velvets making you look like gift wraps because of their distinct texture and shine, opt for muted colours like this beige/brown co-ord set that we found. The colour tones down the in your face nature of the fabric. So if that’s the reason you’ve been avoiding velvet, now you’re sorted! We love this number from SR store.
Printed velvet tops
Most people have a notion that velvet makes them seem bulky because it’s a thick fabric. That’s really not the case–you can get your hands on thin, fitted printed velvet tops like this one! We picked this out from She In and are totally crushing on the party vibes it’s giving us!
If velvet as a fabric is too overwhelming for you, how about clashing two fabrics? This mesh-velvet overlay skirt is the perfect statement worthy item of clothing that you need to get your hands on this season! Style it with a cami top and you’re good to go.
