Velvet For Every Style

You either Love it or you Hate it. Velvet is that fabric that can make some draw a hard line in the sand. Last December, I can recall trying to help a friend of mine find a New Year’s Eve dress. I began my online search at all my fav shopping destinations, and came across a cranberry crushed velvet long sleeve midi dress. With an exposed gold back zipper and a figure hugging cut, I was in love. My friend, not so much. I believe her exact words were “Ew. Is that velvet?” I admit that thinking of velvet sometimes conjures images of my grandmother’s retro velvet drapes, but for me that is the true beauty of this oh so versatile textile. From rock star glam bell bottoms to posh fitted blazers, velvet can be the perfect fit for every personality. I’ve put together six different velvety looks that are sure to help you take advantage of this on trend fabric.
