These Are the Velvet Pieces We’re Currently Crushing On
There are certain things you can expect from the holidays. First, you’re bound to receive a few gifts you’ll want to exchange. Second, you’ll overindulge when it comes to food and alcohol. A lot of us have quite a bit of pent-up partying to let loose after last year’s minimal festivities. Lastly, you’ll want to drape yourself in velvet until long after New Year’s Eve.
Velvet for the holidays is a no-brainer. It’s opulent and chic, except when it gets stale. Thankfully, there are all kinds of new styles, prints and ways to wear velvet to keep it fresh this season. Like texture, cut-outs and the not-so-ubiquitous suit. From celebs to the runway, it’s here for the holidays.
This multidimensional fabric is surprisingly versatile. Especially regarding color choices. Whether you favor classic black, statement blue or more unexpected shades. (Think chestnut and fuchsia.) And don’t be afraid to mix and match. Top off those green flared pants with a sleek bodysuit. Or rock a ruched turtleneck under a crushed black blazer. Because, at least during the holidays, there’s no such thing as too much velvet. Feel free to work in some velvet shoes and a complementary bag while you’re at it.
