FASHION, MY STYLEBOOK
A FESTIVE LOOK WITH EMERALD GREEN VELVET
A major trend right now and I believe every december is velvet. You can find the material on dresses, tops, accessories and even on trousers! I found a way to combine two of my favourite trends this christmas: emerald green velvet and a wrap-top I shape with bell sleeves.
I instantly felt festive when I put my new top on and the contrasting and playful earrings just complete the look I think. I never really go all out for christmas, but stay close to my daily style with just a little extra. To me that's wearing velvet! I can imagine myself wearing this top on other occasions too, but am not sure how to style it yet. Do you have any ideas?
Anyway, if you're interested in wearing velvet yourself, I'd highly recommend keeping it classy with knee length dresses, chic shapes and rich colours. For instance a fabulous wrap dress in deep burgudy, a pleated (or plissé) midi skirt in warm yellow tones or an amazing well fitted or oversized velvet suit in navy blue.
Next post I will show all the inspiration I gathered for wearing velvet, what to buy and how to style it, without looking like you're going to a christmas party.
