The Velvet Revolution

18 Ways to Wear Fall’s Sexy Cool Fabric

BY // 10.28.16


When you think of velvet this season, think rich colors, think classic, think plush, and think fabulous.

Velvet is both vintage and unique. What was once something that people called tacky and expired (imagine that!) is now a must-have in your closet. Amazing how history repeats itself and comes back with the full force of retro glam.

Whether you’re looking to snag a simple bodysuit, a statement-making skirt, or fashion forward accessories, we’ve rounded up 18 fabulously plush velvet pieces to give your look a fun boost.

Add a pop of color to any outfit in Dsquared2’s open toe leather and velvet sandals. The creamy light blue leather and velvet gives your outfit a subtle dazzle, and major flare. Wear this ankle strap sandal with satin culottes, a white tank, and a blazer that’s nestled over your shoulders. Complete your look with a dainty gold choker and Christian Dior’s iconic top handle Lady Dior bag. Switch it up by wearing an oversized denim overall and a knitted sweater underneath.

Stuart Weitzman is known for its iconic footwear and superior craftsmanship. The street-chic All Legs thigh-high velvet boot is a necessity to have in your closet for its flattering and feminine fit. The boot is a Fall wardrobe staple — wear it with a ribbed turtleneck and leather pleated mini-skirt for a lunch date with the girls, then take it day to night with a fitted leather pant, bodysuit and fringed burgundy jacket.

Here, are our most cozy and coveted velvet favs.
