Holiday Fashion Trends / Velvet

It’s been a busy two weeks! I got a little thrown off with my holiday fashion trends posts. When I was shopping for my Latin Grammy dress, I couldn’t help by be inspired by all of the stunning pieces out there are perfect for the season—especially the plus size velvet dresses!

There’s just something about wearing velvet during the holidays. It’s so glam and luxe! Whenever I wear wear it I can’t stop from touching the smooth and soft material.

Styling a velvet dress is pretty easy. Wear a shoe in a contrasting material like metallics. Add a little sparkle with your jewelery or clutch and you’ve got an standout look for any special occasion.

I did a little looking around online and I found a range of plus size velvet dresses—long and short. Will any of these make your holiday outfits?

  • I have always loved velvet. I long for a blue velvet sofa I can pet every time I sit in it! I did have a little flashback when I saw that Missguided crushed velvet skater dress. I had an almost identical one back in high school in the 90s to wear to a holiday event. Ah, such awkward days.

    I LOVE velvet! I generally lean toward black but the rich navy and purples are gorgeous!
