Velvet makes an appearance in our lives every holiday season in the form of dresses, decorations, and that adorable rabbit. This velvet showed up even earlier as one of fall’s top trends. We were pretty excited to see this lush fabric pop up earlier than December and we can’t wait to wear even more velvet dresses, circle skirts, and shorts this winter. To avoid looking like you’re rocking the same velvet holiday dress your mom dolled you up in at age five, accessorize your frock with some grownup accessories. Think anything tough or opulent. Ornate rings, studs, hard metals, and tough looking jewelry all dress up velvet in a grownup way. Instead of flats, rock “big girl” shoe with a serious heel.
