Shaadi season is among us and now that the temperature is dropped – the winter season’s hottest trends come out. As we roll into this chillier season, there is one trend in particular that stands out as the most festive one of all: velvet. The soft, rich fabric just screams decadence and royalty – plus it keeps you warm. Desi or western velvet will definitely be in your wardrobe this season. If you’re confused as to how to style yourself this winter, here are all the ways you can wear velvet:
1. Embellished kurtas
With wedding season in full swing, you can literally never go wrong with a classic embroidered or kaam wala velvet kurta. Whether it be a dholki or a barat, you can pair trousers and dupattas depending on if you want to dress up or dress down your look.
Whether you’re going to a bridal shower, a lunch, or even shopping – these velvet suits are ever so chic and they’ll keep you warm while keeping you stylish.
If you’re feeling super royal, get yourself a nice velvet saari. Embellished or plain – they are definitely a statement look that won’t let you down.
4. Off-shoulder tops
If you have no weddings to go to this winter, you can still incorporate the fabric into your wardrobe with these trendy tops and blouses.
If you’re going to be a bride this winter, consider making a gorgeous velvet lehnga. The regal look is sure to be a hit this shaadi season.
The most beautiful thing about velvet is that the versatile fabric can be used for literally anything, even these cute velvet heels. You need these in your closet.
7. Plain suits with simple shawls
Buy yourself a nice neutral velvet shawl and pair it with some basic items you already have in your closet – a great way to save $$ this shaadi season.
8. Simple gowns
If you want to wear something unique to an event this winter, try making something similar to Syra’s simple velvet gown with sculpting slits and pair it with simple cigarette trousers.
And if you’re more of a sweatpants kinda gal – these tracksuits are beyond gorgeous.
10. Embellished shawls
If you’re invited to a wedding last minute and have nothing to wear, rummage through your mom’s old clothes and you’ll be sure to find a kaam wali velvet shawl.
If it’s not cold where you live and you want to jump onto the bandwagon this season – velvet bags are all the rage right now and a great addition to any purse collection.
Let’s face it – the material itself is super versatile and can be worn in countless different ways. What do you guys think about this trend? Let us know in the comments.
