Stylish Ways To Wear Velvet
By Tope Ojo
Velvet is a classic fabric that instantly gives off an air of elegance and can dress up even the simplest of outfits. It is one of the few fabrics that is both comfortable but can also add instant glamour to your outfit.
Need some ideas for looking stylish while wearing velvet?
Here are a few tips on how to style the velvet trend.
Since velvet is a visually heavy fabric, pair it with more delicate fabrics for balance. Wear a skirt with a nice sparkly cropped lace top paired with strappy low heels to give the look a nice touch. Finally, accessorise with a shoulder bag to complete the ensemble.
Opt for something a little longer for a sophisticated ladylike look, or dress down by pairing your short velvet dress with a blazer for a dinner outing.
Pair a velvet blazer with a clean, crisp white shirt and some classic black jeans. Add a pop of height with a heel for that casual outing.
Accessories are probably the easiest way to make a simple and easy fashion statement. Add a luxury feel to your look if you’re not ready for a full velvet look.
