How much do we love velvet? Let us count the ways! A quintessential ‘90s trend, this luxe fabric has made a definitive comeback this season—and we totally dig it. From jackets and dresses to shoes and handbags, if it comes in velvet, we’ll take it! Getting decked out in it from head to toe not for you? Try the trend in smaller doses by simply adding a sleek bootie or cool cuff. Either way, trust us, there’s something velvet for everyone…

As the temps drops in the evening, sheer panels are a great way to show off a little bit of skin without baring it all. And nothing quite says fa la la fabulous like a pretty little black dress, so feel free to dance the night away at your next holiday party in this saucy number.

Go the sophisticated route in a structured jacket with gold buttons: major military vibes happening here right now. Again, those fall nights can have quite the chill, so opt for this instead of a coat over your cocktail attire. For day, use it to complement your favorite denim + t-shirt + boots combo when you’re meeting the crew for brunch.

Why wear just one piece of velvet when you can wear two… that match! Yes, the matched set is still very much fashion go-to. You also have the option of rocking each piece on it’s own with a different top or bottom… going from one to three different outfit options!

Want to just experiment without going all out? Shoes, handbags and other accessories work well as accents. Another tip: If you’re wearing, say, all black, touches of colored velvet are an easy way to add texture and dimension to any monochromatic look.
