I know that velvet has been around since the dawn of time, because I wore velvet as a child, but I could never fully commit to adding these pieces to my wardrobe until most recently.
Velvet is in its golden era, once more, with new and updated trends and styles. It has a look of elegance and such a luxe texture, that it’s hard not to have one of these pieces on any wish list.
I’ve already scored a couple of pieces for this Fall/Winter season, from the Target collection ‘A New Day’, some pieces from Forever 21, and some vintage pieces that I acquired from my local thrift store. All the pieces that I’m wearing are under $35, because beauty on a budget, am I right?!
For this look in particular, I opted for a dressy casual look. I kept everything monochromatic, to be able to have my shoes be the focal point.
I paired this ‘A New Day’ velvet skirt with a basic cotton t-shirt, I wanted to give off an effortless vibe and wanted to keep this fit as light as possible. To the eye, velvet is such a heavy fabric, so by pairing it with a lighter fabric it gives you more of a casual, dress down vibe.
I love mixing different textures together to give something a bit of an unexpected look. I’ve been really into graphic tees lately, I feel as though they are becoming a fashion staple for this new 2018 year we’re about to embark on.
Lastly, I pulled everything together with these Forever21 velvet sock boots , and this WhoWhatWear Suede purse, I felt like they would give the best contrast to complete this look, without being too much.
The last time I looked, sadly these bad boys were sold out in the Black color, but they do have a beautiful Ginger color available right now. I have tagged some alternatives below.
How are you babes styling this velvet look for this winter season? I’d love to see pics!
