Tuesday Temptations: Velvet crush


Tuesday Temptations: Velvet crush

Click here for Polyvore set.

Velvet has always been a staple of the holiday season. But now that we're all grown up, we probably want something a little different from the dresses mom used to put us in for pictures on Santa's lap. (Does anyone else have way too much photographic evidence of this? I know I do!)

Fortunately, I'm fairly certain any of these pieces will do the trick!

From office parties to family gatherings, it's easy to work this elegant textured fabric into your look. I love the idea of a dress or shorts paired with tights and a great pair heels. Or, for a more subtle touch, try an accent piece like the Juicy Couture clutch above.

How will you be incorporating velvet into your holiday gathering wardrobe?

  3. Hmmm...velvet shorts doesn't seem like a bad look. I'm looking for some cute velvet blazers. Black and rich color one. The red studded loafers you selected are really cute.
