Easily identifiable by look and feel, velvet is one of the most boldest fashion statements one can make. Mastering velvet will without fail distinguish you from the crowd. However, executing a velvet outfit requires time and practice, so before you go buy a velvet suit we recommend that you experiment with velvet accessories. Baby steps.
Dip your toes into the world of velvet with a subtle velvet accent. A small velvet accessory such as a velvet tie or bow tie can make a very large statement. Velvet plated cufflinks and buttons are also a great way to show a little velvet flair.
Now that you are acquainted with the fabric you can move on to bolder accessory pieces. Try matching a velvet pocket square with velvet slippers for a dapper yet relaxed look.
The next step is to add velvet lapels to a classic wool suit. These velvet lapels will pop off the suit and add character and flair to your outfit. Remember that contrast is your friend with velvet. Mix a grey suit with black lapels or vice versa for a head turning look. Now that you are a velvet pro, you are ready for the final frontier: the velvet suit. As velvet is already extremely bold the coloring tends to be on the darker end of the spectrum with some exceptions. Wine colored velvets are by far the most common. This classic look signals both class and comfort.
Now go forth and rock velvet with pride!
