The Velvet in 2017 is very glamorous and sophisticated. It has a bit of its old and refined sort of decadent vibe to it, but then it’s so modern with a mix of 80s and 90s, that it can look so so so incredibly sophisticated. Think of it as vampire luxe done with a dash of rock & roll and glam.
1. Velvet heels / boots
The easy way to wear a trend without too many implications. In case you have trend-commitment-issues you know. A massive velvet trend piece this season is the velvet boots or velvet pumps!
2. The VELVET Dress.
It’s gotta be the star of 2017, and I could bet the billions I don’t have that it’ll be the most did done did look ever at every party for NYE this year. Whether it’s a slip dress in velvet or a wrap dress with spaghetti straps or long sleeves, whether it’s short or maxi, or midi, I think it’ll be the IT look at every party this holiday season.
Which leaves half of us in eyerolls cause we don’t do overly-done looks, and half of us excited and happy to join the velvet wagon. Pick your team, and don’t look back.
3. Velvet tops
Easy to rock and adapt to most styles – they are the perfect answer for casual to more sophisticated outfits. From T-shirts, to blouses, to jackets, blazers – the velvet tops and outwear are a perfect way to spice up an otherwise boring work outfit or going out style. It’s casual with just a bit of something else for fun.
4. Velvet pants
You don’t get more rocknroll than this trust me. From skinnies with high waist to wide legged expensive looking and overly long styles they are the rock star’s uniform when paired with boots and a plain tee. Perfection.
5. Velvet accessories.
Then there are the tiny velvet bags and clutches and of course the velvet chokers. Vampire luxe alert.
