Velvet isn't just for Halloween costumes and period movie sets anymore, girls! Velvet is having a major fashion moment on the red carpet, and the look is just as wearable for real girls. Although the fabric is unavoidably dramatic, with the right feminine touches the look can be edgy-glamorous instead of outlandish.
We're seeing all sorts of garments constructed in velvet-from shoes to gowns. Most of the time for-sale velvet garments are made in dark moody colors (to compliment the heavy fabric's naturally Gothic vibe most likely)-but worn with accessories in light, girly colors-a velvet ensemble will suit even the most girly fashion girl.
So dare to incorporate some velvet into your wardrobe. Be inspired by your favorite celebs on the red carpet and use my tips for styling velvet pieces-and you can't go wrong. A dash of drama in a girl's wardrobe never hurt anybody!
