“I could really use your advice about this pair of velvet Levi’s that I bought. I have been a jeans-only girl my entire life, so the last time I was at the mall I decided to be a little adventurous and went ahead and bought these pants without any thought as to how I might style them. Now I’m stuck! Thus far, I’ve only been able to awkwardly pair them with a white striped shirt! I could really use suggestions for not only tops, but shoes as well. I hope this doesn’t pose too difficult of a challenge!” – Deepa

Deepa, you are a braver woman than I — I am perennially scared of velvet, mostly because it brings up terrible nightmares of the purple crushed-velvet dress with batwing sleeves I wore to my 8th grade dance. Nightmares! But these velvet pants? They’re pretty damn cute. The thing with velvet is you’ve got to be careful not to pair it with a fabric that’s too weak or flimsy. Otherwise, the pants will completely outshine the shirt. That’s why we’d opt for a chambray button down — it’s got enough heft to it that your outfit will feel balanced. As for shoes, absolutely do not wear the shoes pictured with the pants — those nude platforms will only make your legs look stumpy in velvet jeans. Instead, opt for a low heeled bootie — check out the items we’ve picked out for you, after the jump! Keep reading »

Velvet Super Slouchy Top

How come finding good basics always feels like such a fruitless search? The perfect piece has to fill so many criteria—fit, versatility, comfort, genuine love for the garment. We think we may have stumbled upon a great candidate with this slouchy t-shirt by Velvet. Everything from its cap sleeves to its worn-in texture and loose scoop neck make this the kind of top we’d absolutely live in. And like a great basic, we’d take this out with a skirt and heels, or wear it on laundry day. [$71, Shopbop] Keep reading »

‘Tis The Season For Luxurious Velvet

Velvet is corduroy’s fancier cousin. A decidedly wintertime fabric, it’s soft without being slouchy. Everything made with velvet looks rich and sumptuous, so you’ll look like more than your paycheck says you’re worth when you’re put some on. Keep reading »

Crave: Kahla Velvet Cups

Who doesn’t want a handful of velvet? It’s soft like a bunny, sexy to the touch, and now it can prevent second degree burns too! The Touch Cups, made by the German porcelain company Kahla, are strategically covered in velvet and come in cool colors. While traditionally the furry fabric is dainty and easily ruined (insert dress stain story here), this durable tea set is like a real woman — it can take the heat and isn’t afraid to get wet (i.e. they’re microwavable and dishwasher safe).
