Move over, denim. There’s a new fabric in town, and it’s undeniably luxe. It’s none other than velvet.
Meet velvet: the smooth, rich texture that was once known for its contributions to questionable ‘90s fashion. But don’t turn away just yet. Velvet is back and hotter than ever. (No, not in the sense that it’ll make you sweat at your next holiday party. We mean haute-er.)
Adding a whole new dimension to any lackluster ensemble, velvet brings touchable texture that invites passersby to pet you. Let it happen. Let them experience the velvet as you are experiencing it. It’s called humanity, ya humbug.
But besides inviting strangers to stroke your sleeve, velvet is also very useful for looking super chic. Fashion girls around the world have already welcomed the fabric with open arms, and if you’re anyone with a penchant for panache, you’re going to want to adorn yourself with velvet like it’s 1997.
Wear velvet pants or block-heeled boots. Work a velvet top. Sport a velvet dress. The possibilities are endless! Just be sure to mix in contrasting textures with your velvet piece. For example, velvet pants would look awesome with this pleated top, and a velvet dress would turn casual cool underneath this twill coat. As for that velvet top or bodysuit you picked up? Tuck it into patterned skirt like this one for a fun, stylish effect.
Go on with your bad self, you texture queen, you.
