To welcome this new year 2017, why not starting a whole new set of fashion style experiment that will change your perception of clothing? it could be stuck next to your new year’s resolutions — I promise, this will be achievable. There’s in fact one material in particular that takes over and that’s velvet. From vintage pink to burgundy, velvet is popping up everywhere! It’s one of the few materials that is both comfortable and can also add some instant glamour to your outfit. However, velvet dresses especially are back in vengeance with more fluid and femininity then before. This means, there are few versions of the velvet dress for you to experiment such as a little longer velvet dress for the sophisticated ladylike style or a short and playful mini velvet dress for the instant badassifer. Don’t worry, you can still avoid feeling overwhelmed by the fabric if you don’t layer your look.
Whether you’re going out for the evening with friends or to your office lunch, you can’t go wrong with velvet – it’s the perfect material for a sassy yet sophisticated look. For example, dress down in the day by pairing your red velvet dress with a light knitted coat for a super casual outfit or with a printed boho leather jacket for a sumptuous play with textures — it will add an effortlessly cool vibe. In the evening, you can coordinate your red velvet dress with a simple black chocker and black strappy heels, without forgetting your black bomber jacket. For a look worthy of a sassy diva, make your style chic by wearing a red velvet slip dress with pointy glittered heels sandals or stilettos,a statement clutch bag with a dark red lipgloss. If you’re a girly girl, then wear that velvet slip dress over a cotton tee with metallic heels paired with optional white ruffle socks, it will work as well.
By the way, as velvet also works well with classic wardrobe staples, the best way to wear something you’re unfamiliar with is to pair it with non-trendy, classic pieces like opaque or fishnet tights, denim jacket, or basic cotton shirts. To dress your red velvet down and make it work for every day, or even not every day, pair it with sick silhouettes like an army satin bomber jacket , lip laquer booties or simple white sneakers. It’s in order your velvet won’t feel dated or overly fancy. Finally, you can play with different textures and add double velvet in the game with a burgundy velvet jacket. Plus, rather than making too much of a statement, you just have to be careful about the red velvet style and length you pick. Choose one that has a vibrant color that will be both ideal for the day and night. Regarding accessories, choose bold or very discret colors that will contrast the strong red.
