Velvet has got to be one of my favourite materials… Looks good. Feels good. Also it’s fun to hug someone whilst they’re wearing velvet. FACTS.
So here I am serving you 3 different velvet looks…
The Cute Look –
For the first look I paired this cotton candy pink dungaree dress with a black and white striped jumper, I really like the distinct contrast of both the patterns and textures with this look. I topped off the outfit with some gold hoop earrings and my lived in vans. Dungarees are perfect for a carefree look and the pocket on the front is super handy for keeping your phone in so you don’t need a handbag, and that means feeling as free as a wild horse galloping in the fields.
The Classy Look –
This dress is pretty deceiving, it doesn’t really look like a velvet dress but it’s so soft to the touch and I’ve had a fair few compliments when people have hugged me and exclaimed how nice the material feels.
As this dress is a bit of a showstopper on it’s own I felt there was no necessity to enhance the look with lots of accessories. So I just chucked on some faithful DM’s and put on some glitter socks (the odd socks aren’t intentional, I am just a huge fail when it comes to pairing up socks after washing my clothes -_-)
Dress – Topshop

Shoes – Dr Martens

Ring – Same as above!
The Sassy Look –
This look is one for the disco queen tom boys out there.
I normally like to include contrasts of feminine and masculine elements in outfits, and this one pulls together disco velvet and punk-esque aesthetics. I quite like the pairing of the delicate textures and tones of the crushed velvet top against the stark roughness of the denim jacket and, the checkered trousers on top bring another dimension to this look. Then what do you know, I finished off the look with some dainty gold earring and a pair of oxblood DM’s (AGAIN?! I KNOW. But I live in the same town as the factory which means I can get super cheap docs, so just give me a break pls!)
