Being home for the holidays is no excuse to pass up wearing an adorable outfit, especially when it involves velvet. This up and coming trend has definitely reinvented itself. Growing up in the ’90s, it is no secret that velvet made a frequent appearance in my childhood wardrobe. Today, velvet is back and better than ever. From formal wear to everyday street style, velvet has become a must-have piece in wardrobes today.

This Fashionista created a unique street style look by pairing a velvet T-shirt with a military style jacket. Velvet is something that can be worn year round, which leaves room for fashion creativity. For instance, this Fashionista made the velvet top more suitable for the winter conditions by adding the jacket as a top layer. By keeping the jacket open not only does it allow the Fashionista to show off her taste for texture, but it also allows her to express her sense of style through the use of accessories.

The main textures in this outfit spark fashion interest by creating a bold look. The unexpected combination of masculine and feminine styles create a new feel for velvet. Velvet is a romantic, timeless material that has been around fashion for generations. By pairing this vintage look with a more modern day trend, such as a boyfriend style jacket, it has helped bring velvet back into the fashion world in a refreshing way.
