When you think “velvet” it is easy to associate the images of young schoolgirls, Mary Janes, hair bows and perhaps even dance costumes. However, this winter velvet has come around full swing with a new and improved look and meaning. The velvet fabric can turn any outfit into a festive, cozy and bold ensemble.
Velvet can be found in just about every piece of clothing or accessory from blazers, flirty skater skirts and even shoes. This Fashionista rocks the velvet just right in her oversized long velvet jacket by Civil. She paired it with a high-waisted bodycon skirt from Guess and a spandex bralette from American Apparel that reveals her midriff just enough.This Fashionista accessorized her look by throwing on a pair of black knitted thigh highs from Karma Loop, black booties by Franco Sarto and a gold accent jewelry by Nicole Richies’ line House of Harlow.
