I approached this post with some degree of caution, as velvet and velour can skew really cheesy really easily. But they can also be quite elegant, and few things feel as good to wear. My main rule with these materials is to play it relatively straight: velvet in particular makes enough of a statement on its own, so you don’t want to get too tricky with it. This dress is so feminine, but at the same time nicely streamlined.
A black blazer looks nice and rich.
If I still worked in an office, I’d be all over this dress.
This tee is the lightest, lightest lavender, and hangs so nicely.
A dress for throwing on when comfort is the priority. It’d look amazing with leather leggings.
Here’s pencil skirt with nice clean lines.
This tank worn with your most beaten-up jeans would be aces.
A blouse that’s ladylike without being prissy, which is nice.
Velvet on shoes can be disastrous, but if the color is good enough, as it is here, they can really add a lot to an outfit.
This blazer is just such a good green.
I like the dressed-up feel of these Tretorns.
The kind of tee that goes into high rotation as soon as it reaches your closet.
Grey velvet jeans are nicely sophisticated.
I adore this vest, and so wish I had the nerve to try and pull off a vest.
Just a very simple top that could easily be dressed up or down.
The choker collar here is really sexy.
And why not a velour hoodie?
