Arriving in a shocking array of bright hues, velvet is no longer the fabric of dark, romantic, Gothic evening-only clothes, but one to be mixed into the most vibrant street styler’s daytime wardrobes. You’ll find it used in everything from trouser suits to thigh-high boots. But velvet pieces are a lot like diamonds: Whether serious or playful, you have to commit. The best ways to wear the fabric without feeling cloaked in suffocating richness is to incorporate it an unexpected way.
Keeping in mind my last post on how to dress differently for a party here’s another look I created by NOT wearing a dress. Teamed up this gorgeous velvet embroidered skirt with a lace bustier top layered with a black overcoat and added a pair plexi glass heels to finish off the look.
This velvet skirt by Summation Clothing is right on trend. Embroidery-check , colour-check, fabric-check . It checks out all the trends in one go and I won’t be lying if I said I am absolutely in love with this skirt.
Throw some glitter on your makeup because what’s a party without glitter? Go for subtle or nude lips that complement the glitter makeup rather than overpowering it.
