HOW TO GIVE A CLASSIC VELVET DRESS A COOL-GIRL EDGE
This is my favorite time of year for a few obvious reasons: family, food, and of course holiday fashion. Whether you’re heading home for the holidays, attending a holiday party, or hosting family and friends at your house, who’s going to be there, what’s on the menu, and what to wear are the questions everyone wants to know.
Although I would love to attend every party, and meet every person, I can’t. What I can do is make sure everyone shows up in style.
This year, velvet is my fabric of choice, and a sleek fitting dress is the way to pull it off.
A velvet dress is the perfect way to show up for the holidays in style. Velvet elevates your look because the fabric is rich and luxurious. The material absorbs color well, so any color you choose will be vibrant.
The silhouette of a perfectly fitted velvet dress is unmatched. It’s feminine and classic. But, since it’s the holidays we’re going to turn it up a bit.
3 tips to giving your velvet dress a cool-girl edge:
Opt for on-trend shoes instead of classic heels. I paired mine with cowboy boots. It’s just a really cool way to show off your personality and add style to a classic look.
Have fun with your hair. I love to treat my hair like an accessory. It can make (or break) a look. Since my dress is sleek and chic, I mirrored that effect with a classic bob.
Add a more casual, yet fun, bag to the look to create the perfect juxtaposition of classic and casual. My cross-body Dior bag and strap worked well, but you could opt for a fanny pack as well. Have fun with it.
