To be honest Velvet is hard to explain, it can’t be wear in a casual way (for example office outfit) if it is not styling your favorite clutch or shoes… but it could be the perfect party dress or raise your style to the top if you are looking for the perfect grunge outfit. And of course, it’s the perfect choice to wear in a Holiday party to make you feel sexy and festive.

OnlyDope tips:

- Red Velvet is easier to style.
- Head-to-toe red ensembles is cool but but they look particularly fresh when covered in velvet accents.
- Bohemian gypsy fits perfectly with Velvet.
-The best way to wear velvet is without overdosing the look. That means a few accessories accentuate the sophistication of velvet, but too many can compete with this fabric since it already makes a strong statement on its own, avoid heavy pieces of jewelry and invest in vintage ones.
-If you feel shy about wearing a velvet piece such a coat, skirt or dress; scarves, bags, and shoes are all potential options.

 

VELVET CAN BE DELICATE:

 

Try matching your velvet skirt with blouses made of delicate fabrics. Velvet is a heavy fabric and it will create a luxurious appearance
