Confession: I have been crushing on velvet. I love the way the luxurious feel of the fabric and the way it looks when the light catches.
If you are still planning your holiday outfit, then velvet is a great choice. Currently, you can find almost anything in velvet, including tops, leggings, jumpsuits, and skinnies (currently crushing on these from J. Crew Factory!). I rounded up a couple of velvet pieces that I currently love and plan to embrace during the holiday season.
I picked up this off-the-shoulder beauty from Target a few months ago. I adore the berry color and the off-the-shoulder detail. However, my favorite thing about this dress in the fit. Skater-fit style dresses (and skirts) are very form flattering because they draw the eye into the smallest part of the body, the waist, and “skates” over the hips and thighs. This dress is flirty, comfy, and currently on sale!
As soon as I saw that J. Crew came out with a velvet version of their sidewalk skirt, I had to buy it. I already have several sidewalk miniskirts that I dress up or down depending on my mood (def a closet staple if you haven’t snagged one yet). This velvet sidewalk mini was a must have because I already trusted that it’s comfort and versatility could survive both the work environment and holiday events. Best part? Its currently on sale plus an additional 50% of until Christmas!
Emerald Peter Pan
I have featured this velvet dress before (here), but I love it so much that I had to show it again. Unfortunately, this was a Marshall’s find, so I cannot provide a link for purchase. However, how stunning is this green? I also enjoy that it has a beaded peter pan collar that adds another touch of femininity to the piece.
