Crush-Worthy Velvet Pieces to Add to Your Fall Closet
Let's talk velvet: are you still convinced the soft and silky material was made for pairing with combat boots and a choker necklace? We're about to totally change your mind. Forget the crushed-velvet looks of the '90s and reach way back to the days when velvet was made for royalty — wouldn't you like to embrace your inner queen?
Bring the baroque to today, and wear the plush fabric for work or weekend, because to us it can be fun, but it will always feel just a little fancy. You can pair a skin-hugging dress with a velvet blazer or up-style your jeans with velvet slippers; the key to pulling it off the cool girl way is to pair it with low-key pieces. A dash of something casual (like a leather jacket or flannel) will help you avoid an opulence overload. So, check out our favorite velvet pieces this season, because you deserve to rock Fall's most luxurious trend.
