Velvet is one of those things we save for special occasions. We think it’s for balls, parties and black-tie events but that doesn’t have to be the case. The growing trend for this super plush fabric to be enjoyed throughout the winter months has been shown off by some of our favorite celebrities, and we can easily steal their style. Rocking the velvet trend may mean being bold with a one-piece outfit or it could be simply choosing the right accessory. Below we’re looking at exactly how to rock the velvet trend, with a little help from the celebs:
Choose One Statement Piece
You don’t have to dress from head to toe in velvet if you’re experimenting with the trend. Disney Actress Rowan Blanchard showed just how subtle, yet stylish velvet can be in a classy bralette teamed with a plain t-shirt. You can do the same with simple velvet tees or sexy tank tops in a range of different shades. Velvet adds texture and a touch of class to any outfit.
Go Bold with Color
If you’re going to keep it simple in your choice of garment, then the color is one way to show off your style. Velvet fashion screams elegance but only if you get it right. There are lighter tones available, but most velvet garments will be in richer hues. You’d better choose them. The sheen and shine of this fabric lend itself to rich, jewel-like shades with ruby reds and emerald greens particularly popular and perfect for teaming with simple black trousers or skirts.
The elegant and luxurious nature of velvet means it can be hard to create an informal look. One way to do this is with pared-down accessories. Demi Lovato was spotted wearing a highly structured and buttoned velvet dress which she rocked fabulously due to simple kitten heels and no accessories. The dress took center stage and she managed to look classy without over the top.
Own It with a Jumpsuits
If you’re feeling bold and ready to embrace the velvet trend, then try to rock a classic jumpsuit. Khloe Kardashian has tried glamorous yet playful velvet playsuits with the softness of the fabrics, making the whole look a little less intimidating. Simple accessories or only a bracelet or ring or two is the best way of allowing this statement trend to truly take center stage.
