Winter Trends: Velvet

As 2016 comes to a close, so does my winter trend series with Irene of Petite Plus, Meow!  For our final installment, we are talking about our favorite tactile treasure – velvet. 

Dress:  Smart Glamour (Available here)

I love wearing velvet – it is just so soft and comfortable, and it’s hard to resist touching the fabric while you’re wearing it!

Irene and I both stuck with pretty velvet dresses in neutral shades.  I’m wearing a grey Joan sheath dress with customized 3/4 length sleeves and full skirt from Smart Glamour.  The dress has a cutout detail which gives it a little extra flair.

Glasses:  Valentino
Clutch:  NY&CO
Heels:  ASOS

To dress the look up, I added gold lace-up heels and gold jewelry.  I love the contrast of grey and gold.  Silver is more expected, but I think gold creates a more sophisticated mix.

Bracelets:  LOFT

Irene styled a taupe bodycon slip dress for a recent holiday house party.  She layered her dress over a black tee for a cool 90s feel.
