Ultra Velvet for Daytime Drama
Velvet is not just for evening anymore. These ultra modern velvet dresses are just as appropriate for day as they are for night. The look is simple and clean in gorgeous shades and graphic patterns. From burnout designs to pleats and geometrics, velvet dresses are a pretty way to infuse a bit of night time luxury into your wardrobe. This classic fabric has never looked so modern! Pair with simple but bold accessories. We love the shades of black and crimson for fall.
Minimal with an avant guard edge, the Alexander Wang Burnout Velvet Combo Dress ($420.00 at Shopbop.com, top left) is simplicity at its best. The dress features a jersey and velvet burnout asymmetric panel at the shoulder. From Diane von Furstenberg’s Grano printed velvet wrap dress ($345 at Net-a-Porter) features an abstract all over animal print in striking jewel tones. I love the three quarter draped sleeves, low v-neck and self tie wide fabric belt. A pretty look for daytime with opaque tights with pumps then remove the tights for cocktails and pair bare legs with some strappy platform sandals. As seen on the runways, the Chloe Draped velvet dress ($2,940 at Net-a-Porter) adds dramatic the appeal of an ’80s silhouette for one of the more noteworthy events on your agenda.
Pair pretty velvet pumps with a velvet dress or your favorite little black dress for a classic polished evening look. We found a pair of luxe Christian Louboutin Lady Page Velvet-Bow Pumps ($995 at NeimanMarcus.com) and for less pick up a pair of budget-friendly Mossimo Dulce Velvet Peep Toe Pumps in black ($24.99 at Target.com).
