It used to be that only the high echelons of society could wear velvet. Given the cost of production, this was a material for kings and courtiers. It symbolizes wealth and power. But now, modern methods of industrialization have made this fabric available at just about any price.

We might’ve believed velvet had gone away with the eighties and nineties, but it’s come back stronger than ever. On catwalks and street style, we see the keepers of fashion wearing or showing us a new way of adding this luxurious fabric into our everyday. If you’re still on the fence about how and when to wear this shiny soft material, here are some ideas.


Evening Wear

Back in the eighties, this meant a cocktail dress or gown. Now a body-con outfit that accentuates your curves is all you need to make an entrance. If you’re looking for something out of the ordinary for a black tie affair, you can choose one with the right length for your formal event. However, make sure you choose dark colors or jewel tones. That way your outfit will make the best statement.
