Velvet in 2017?
And what’s even better is that it won’t necessarily be in the colors you expect. Nevertheless, wearing velvet in either the cold or warm weather can prove to be tricky.
No need to worry though. I have a unique solution just for you.
How To Wear A Velvet Suit…In Any Weather
(1) Buy One
First and foremost you need to have a velvet suit to wear one. More than likely, you’ll have to buy each piece as separates, which may seem like a nightmare. But to miss that mess altogether, I advise that you purchase the top and bottom from the same store.
Or, if you’re willing to take a risk, mix and match pieces for a personalized look.
(2) Choose Your Undergarments Wisely
Pretty blunt but super practical.
In the winter, you’re going to crave extra warmth so wearing fleece leggings underneath your velvet pants would be a wise choice. However, in the Spring, choosing to wear a bralette (or another form of lingerie) under your suit jacket would be the perfect style statement.
Without a shadow of a doubt, this is how you can ensure that you stand out in a crowd. Depending on your hairstyle and makeup choice, you can wear studs, statement earrings or a pendant necklace.
Personally, I opted for an Ankara Print Choker as a nod to my Afro-Caribbean heritage.
