One of the major trends that’s been huge lately is the velvet trend. I’ve seen it on shoes, dresses, bags, sweaters, and accessories even, like chokers and neck ties. I personally love the velvet trend, and I think that this luxurious fabric would look really good for the upcoming holidays. Velvet and sequins sounds like the perfect party combo, don’t you think?

Since I am currently into this trend, I thought I should show how I would style it, so I did a look book where you can see me style the velvet trend three different ways. These looks are perfect for holiday parties or any event that you’ll be attending!

Look 1 – Accent piece

When I dabble with new trends, I like taking it slow by incorporating accessories in that particular style or fabric, and pair it with something more basic like an all black look. Since velvet is a statement piece by itself, you always want to go with a basic look the first time, and experiment with it more as you go along. This look is great for any formal events if you’re attending one.

Okay, so you think you got this whole velvet thing down, so why not take it up a notch with a velvet article of clothing. I love this velvet skirt, because the pink is very subtle, and the lace detail on the hemline adds a feminine touch. I paired this with a basic sweater and black pumps to keep the look balance. This look is very appropriate for family gatherings or for an office party.

So you got the accent piece, and the statement piece of clothing. Now why not go all out by wearing head to toe deck in velvet! I love this silver velvet dress! I don’t own any color like this one, and it’s a head turner piece as you could tell by the high slit. I paired this velvet dress with some strappy velvet heels and love how this look turned out. This look is perfect for parties with friends, or a formal party… if you don’t mind showing off too much skin! Heh!
