So, unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past few months, you know that velvet anything is a hot trend right now.

And while it’s easy to wear velvet for fancier occasions (like winter weddings and holiday parties), I’ve been getting a ton of questions on how to wear velvet for a more casual or everyday look.

I’ve selected my top picks (all under $60) to demonstrate how to wear velvet for everyday occasions.  So, whether it’s a touch of velvet in a hair bow or another accessory like a backpack (also comes in black and pink!), these velvet looks will keep you on trend without looking like you stepped straight off the Oscar’s red carpet.

 

How to wear velvet for everyday casual:
  • First of all, I’m obsessed with this taupe colored pull-over sweatshirt.  The color is so netural and perfect, it could be paired with just about anything.  Wear it with jeans and flats for a perfect weekend look.
  • Bomber jackets are so in right now.  Incorporate some crushed velvet like this bomber jacket and *BAM* another perfect casual go-to outfit.
  • As for velvet outerwear, this long quilted velvet coat works with a simple white blouse and jeans.  It can also be worn over a leather skirt and tights to keep you warm on those winter nights.
  • And finally, these taupe boots.  I am practically drooling over the lush crushed velvet and neutral color of these babies.  Even though these have quite a large heel, you could pair them with jeans during the day, and then a dressier look for a night out.
