Velvet tees are everyone’s go to in the velvet trend. Not only are they easy to find because of their popularity, but they make a great statement piece to any outfit. Wear it tucked into loose boyfriend jeans for an easy daytime look, or dressed up with a skirt and a cute jacket or blazer. Velvet tops are great to wear under layers, such as scarves or jackets, because they add texture and character and are a welcome change from your basic white tee.
#2: Dress Pants
Okay, I get it. Velvet pants can sound a little scary. They are way easier to pull off than you may think. In need of a holiday party outfit? Consider these your go-tos. We’re loving rich, saturated velvet skinny pants with a blazer and silk tank for when you’ve got to dress it up, but not in the mood to wear a dress. It’s a sophisticated option that’s both comfortable and chic.
Shoes are the easiest way to dress up any outfit. There are a wide variety of shoes that have the velvet treatment, ranging from sneakers to boots. Go for a simple yet stylish daytime look by wearing velvet flats or mules, and turn up the heat at night with some ankle booties or knee high boots.
#4: The Shoulder Bag
One of the more subtle ways to add velvet into your wardrobe is with a gorgeous bag. Going out for a drink with some friends or having that much anticipated date night? Switch out your black clutch for a velvet shoulder bag! Not only are they completely practical, but the velvet helps keep you on trend, even when you’re on the go. Velvet purses are a great way to begin incorporating the trend because they are not as prominent as some other velvet pieces, such as pants or jackets. That being said, they add a great hint of sophistication and style with minimal styling effort from you!

Fall is all about adding layers, for both comfort and fashion’s sake. But sometimes, the layering gets predictable.
