I still can’t get enough of velvet, and neither can fashionistas everywhere! A velvet dress can add a touch of luxe to my everyday looks and yet they’re also appropriate evening wear. I also love how I wore so many velvet dresses over the holidays, but none of them looked the same! You’ve got so many different cuts, styles, colors, and lengths to choose from—it’s all a matter of finding the perfect velvet dress for your body and personality. And if that isn’t a fashionista’s dream, I don’t know what is. If you need new inspiration to wear your velvet dress, take a look at these great ideas!
1. Thigh High Slit
I like playing on my assets. One of them being my legs. Thigh high slits are perfect because they call attention to them while still letting me look classy as ever. I’ve got to say, this option’s a strong contender on my New Year OOTD.
2. Booted Up
There’s something that just catches my eye when it comes to mini dresses paired with boots. I’m particularly drawn to wearing a festive color come New Year’s Eve. This silver one should do the trick!
This two-toned velvet dress is gorgeous beyond reason. It’s perfect for someone like me who can’t get enough of black dresses. But at least this time, it’s a change from the usual LBDs.
There are times when I like matching my clothes with my shoes. I’ve been obsessed with blush and tan tones recently, so I’m considering this ensemble as well.
5. Off The Shoulder
I like hiding the holiday bulge by drawing attention to my collarbones, which makes this dress one of my absolute faves. Not only does it highlight my clavicles but it’s also got such an adorable scallop cut. It’s just too cute!
All these velvet dress styling tricks will keep me wearing this trend all throughout the new year! I’m so excited to try out these ideas. I think I’ll start with the boots and color-coordinated looks first. Which velvet dress was your favorite? Let me know in the comments below!
Can’t get enough of luxe fabrics? Add some suede to your wardrobe as well! I’m loving this suede dress from Mason & Ivy!
