With the nation’s noticeable roaring obsession with chokers, overalls, and denim minis it’s safe to say that the ’90s has officially made its comeback! To top off the holiday season, velvet has soared to the forefront and is definitely this season’s must-have for any and all ’90s fashion enthusiasts.
To ring in 2017, I have chosen to sport the rich fabric in a more edgy stylized fashion, sporting a low back magenta velvet bodysuit along with a leather midi skirt and iridescent Adidas Superstars. The rich fabric serves to dress up the ensemble as a perfect and comfy number to bring in the new year. While the two textures of the velvet and leather seamlessly complement each other as they provide an enriching level of sophistication that calls for every new year celebration.
What’s even better is how they both contribute to the look’s overall versatility. I currently wear the ensemble as a featured day look, as I comfortably sport Adidas sneakers to easily and effortlessly conduct my day-to-day activities. I can easily dress the look up by simply changing my shoes to strappy sandals or even platform heels when transitioning to attend the evening’s celebration.
Instead of over accessorizing, I allow for my personality to stand out via each piece of clothing. I keep my accessories simple with my staple stud earrings and signature charm bracelets on each wrist, as I didn’t want to overpower the overall aesthetic of my look. The only additional feature I accentuated with were my pink-framed fashion shades to protect me from the island’s rays.
Catering to the retro fabric aesthetic, I wore my hair in a high puff/ponytail while boasting natural hues and shades for my makeup, only revealing a pop of color via my similar shaded lip gloss to match my magenta velvet top. Although this look is more on the dressier side of my personal style, it’s perfect for me to start off the year.
