Velvet Crush: 5 Pieces To Ease Your Way Into The Trend


I have to say, I’m a tad surprised to find velvet returning to a place of prestige among fashion trends. Regardless of its fickle standing, I suspect it’d be hard to find anyone who doesn’t enjoy that skin-to-velvet feeling. If you’re anything like me, you’ll find a subtle integration preferable to diving headlong into a new look.

From little to sizable commitments—shoes, blazers, and turbans—here are five simple pieces that’ll spark your velvet crush!

  • Booties 1 of 5

    In my opinion the best way to ease into any trend is with a pair of shoes. These cut-out velvet booties are simple yet sharp and a smart versatile piece to add to your wardrobe.

  • Slinky Shift 2 of 5

    Keeping it black when shopping for large pieces, like dresses, is the best place to start with this sometimes daunting trend. The simple shape of this dress keeps it casual and cool. Elegant enough to wear to a party but understated enough for a coffee date with your mommy group.

  • Zippered Skinnies 3 of 5

    Add a little fun to your favorite black skinny pant outfit by swapping them out for velvet skinnies. I love how they styled this pair with a chunky heel and light denim jacket—A polished look for everyday!

  • Bold Blazer 4 of 5

    If there is one velvet piece that didn't ever really go out of style it is the velvet blazer!  A fun way to wear two super hot trends right now.

  • Bright Turban 5 of 5

    Go for the bohemian look with a fun, colorful velvet turban head band. It's an excellent way to add a little style to an otherwise ordinary outfit.
