I remember the velvet trend as a teenager. My velvet leggings and tunic shirts were on repeat as a teen. One particular velvet outfit I remember quite well is a green one — a hideous green one! I looked like a jolly olde elf when wearing it! I can’t believe I wore it, maybe my mom forced me (I don’t remember)!?! It was a hooded velvet tunic with matching leggings! Don’t you love recalling your fashion faux pas? I should of kept it because it would of topped any Ugly Christmas Sweater Outfit!
The velvet trend came full circle this season with velvet dresses, pants, tops, jackets, chokers and even OTK boots! Isn’t this great? I don’t want this velvet trend to end! When I saw this velvet dress on Amazon I knew I wanted to give this trend a try again. The cowl neck is flattering on your neckline and the midi length is perfect to show some legs. I paired it with my favorite H&M moto jacket for an edgy appeal. The gorgeous turquoise necklace is my mother’s and it is absolutely beautiful! And, I wore my favorite cage heel black pumps from Missguided.
Tell me and be honest, how many velvet fashion pieces do you own?
