Velvet is often more versatile, colorful and luxurious. I personally like velvet a lot because it lets me add instant glamour to my outfit and the material is comfortable on me as well. So what’s the best way of wearing velvet? Here are some tips to help you.
The Best Way to Wear Your Velvet Dress
This season, velvet dresses are more feminine and fluid than before. In fact, you will find many designers, from Preen and Prada showcasing their velvet creations on the runway, and that too in a range of silhouettes and colors.
Velvet is a kind of woven tufted fabric where the cut threads are distributed evenly. The feel is distinctively soft when you wear a dress. Velvet is made either from natural of synthetic fibers. A lot of the velvet material you will find now is actually “silk velvet”, which is a mix of silk and rayon. Velvet is often more comfortable than cotton and many other fabrics.
There are many dress variations you can experiment with in velvet. For instance, you can wear something a bit longer to showcase a sophisticated ladylike look, or you may like to show off a playful and short ruffled number, like what Preen likes to design. But remember, you should never over-layer your look. The fabric may overwhelm you. You can pair the velvet dress with an elegant and sleek mac and a cashmere scarf that will make you feel cozy during the winter.
A great thing about a velvet dress is that it is a great style you can carry easily from the day to the night. The Tissura velvet fabrics gives you timeless elegance and good looks. It is one of the best materials you will find.
