Velvet style

Fall and winter are traditional seasons for velvet, and it can be worn during the day or evening. For day, a tailored velvet shirt or loose top can be worn with jeans, or a long, casual velvet skirt can be worn with boots and a leather jacket. For evening, velvet shows up in pantsuits, jackets and gowns. Pair evening velvet separates, such as pants, with similarly luxe fabrics, such as silk charmeuse or cashmere.
Accessories can add a touch of velvet to your wardrobe. Look for velvet (or burnout velvet) scarves, velvet handbags and velvet shoes. Lace looks great with velvet too, and it's everywhere this season. Try a blouse with a lace jabot under a velvet jacket.1.


Pair a short velvet slip dress with some black combat boots or a pair of colorful ballet flats. Alternatively, take a burgundy or hunter green short-sleeved velvet dress and add some light brown cowboy boots to play down the rich, jewel tones of the dress.
Rhinestones, diamonds, shiny gold, and pearls will make your dress look fancier, while brassy, coppery, or turquoise stones will make it more relaxed.
If you’re still feeling overly formal in your velvet dress, toss a light jacket over it. This addition will break up the solid velvet, as well as add visual interest and structure to the overall look.
Leather or bomber jackets are perfect for a casual day out with your friends, while a fitted blazer is a great, ever-appropriate look for the office or other professional events.2.
