Give me ALL of the velvet feels!
This season, velvet is EVERYWHERE annnnnnnnd I’m loving it! From what I remember, the velvet of the 90’s was mainly relegated to a scallop-edged semi-formal dresses worn with french roll hairstyles during some super awkward school dance. Jessica McClintock was everybody’s jam! Basically, the velvet semi-formal dress was practically a rite of passage in every pre-teen’s life. Fast forward to today . . . . I LOVE that velvet is not just reserved for “special occasions” anymore. Velvet is now found in casual outfits, shoes, dresses, purses.
I’ve become a HUGE fan of velvet body suits. One of my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE looks on the blog was an Express deep-v velvet body suit with a fringy suede skirt and velvet booties. The look was a happy accident. I had a photoshoot scheduled early in the morning with practically nothing to wear. I only had pieces to wear but no outfits. As you can guess, the stress level was at about a 9.5. With less than 45 minutes until stores closed, my cousin from Cali and I went shopping. #Success See how I styled a velvet with suede, velvet with pants and velvet with white denim. Here are some of my favorite velvet picks I’m crushing on this season.
