What To Wear in the Next #BombCyclone: Bold Velvet
As temps in D.C. hit record lows this month, it was hard to muster much enthusiasm for venturing outside the comfort of our apartments. Luckily, our go-to fabric of the season—velvet—motivated us to hit the streets in style, #bombcyclone be damned. Jackets, jumpsuits and even cocktail dresses cut in the plush fabric kept us looking cool and feeling warm. As bold new colors continue to one-up basic black, here are a few of our favorites shades:
This soft and feminine color is having a moment, showing up everywhere from runways to interior design showrooms. Velvet textures in the shade make for a romantic but laid back look.
This bold blue is an unexpected alternative to black velvet. Pair it with dark accessories for a sophisticated style.
Looking for a dramatic pop of color that will scream luxury? Dramatic velvet accents in a rich hue like burgundy are sure to be a show-stopper.
