Keeping cosy and warm in winter while still looking stylish? Yes please! There are so many reasons to crush on velvet this season - it adds drama and romance to your winter outfits without being too OTT. While it's typically reserved for evening, velvet can also work dressed down for day. Try pairing a velvet ankle boot with a ruffled midi dress, or throw a velvet blazer over your usual jeans and tee outfit for instant glam.
Dasha Gold of The Trend Spotter recently wore our new Melodrama Velvet Jumpsuit on location in Catania, Italy. The rich raspberry velvet popped against the muted colours and intricate details of the Italian architecture. An outfit all in itself, Dasha styled the jumpsuit with black ankle boots and statement earrings to take her effortlessly from day to night.
We love how these celebs have styled velvet for both day and night:
Make like Kourtney Kardashian and style a pair of velvet wide-leg pants with your fave distressed band tee for cool off-duty style.
Rihanna pairs a versatile velvet slip dress with an aviator-style jacket and strappy heels. For day we would style this with sneakers and a tee or turtleneck underneath to dress it down.
Rachel Zoe has the right idea with a full burgundy suit for the ultimate head-to-toe velvet look. For a more casual vibe, we would wear the blazer with a white tee and jeans.
