Velvet is such a hot trend for fall that stars have been rocking it since all the way back in August, but most of us normal folk waited to bust out the smooth stuff until it felt a bit more weather appropriate, and now that it does, we’ve got lots of chic-on-the-cheap ways to wear the super-luxe material.
You already know velvet is a holiday party staple, but those rich-looking pieces don’t have to languish in the back of your closet when you’re not in champagne-quaffing mode. Pair a velvet blazer with jeans for classy date look or with a leather mini skirt for a litte extra edge. You can also incorporate velvet accessories such as belts, handbags and shoes into just about any outfit for a festive, cozy look that appears way more expensive than it is. Check out these gorgeous velvet pieces for budget-friendly shopping (or Christmas list) inspiration.
