20 Style Tips On How To Wear Velvet

It’s been pretty clear for a while now that the ’90s are coming back in the fashion world in a major way. First there were the crop tops, then the knee socks, then the overalls, then the Birkenstocks, and now, velvet. The other day when I was shopping, I saw a burgundy velvet dress that instantly brought back memories from my childhood. It was amazing!

Velvet is super soft and cozy, making it perfect for any winter outfit. It’s a little too heavy to be worn in the spring, and definitely too heavy for the summertime, so if you love this trend and want to get in on it, make sure to do it within the next few months. When it’s worn incorrectly, velvet can sometimes look childish or over-the-top feminine, but when styled the right way, it can just look amazing. I highly suggest purchasing at least one velvet item for this winter. Here are 20 style tips on how to wear velvet with outfit ideas to get you started:

 

1. Make a maxi skirt work for winter by pairing it with a cozy and comfy velvet blazer.
