This season, and as long as we can remember, we’ve had a serious crush on velvet! Luxe and soft on the skin, just about anything draped in velvet equals a serious statement piece. At home, it’s a durable and forgiving upholstery choice that instantly adds drama to a room. Caring for this sumptuous fabric may seem intimidating at first, however, it’s easier than one might think via our care guide here. From head-to-toe fashion to home décor, Gwen and Lindsey are sharing their favorite velvet pieces for this season.
1. PAIGE VELVET JUMPSUIT | RAMY BROOK
Rich velvet fabric elevates this romantic jumpsuit from casual to cocktail party. Gwen’s got her eye on this for festive gatherings this winter.
2. VELVET LLAMA SNEAKER | SOLUDOS
These casual sneakers get an edgy upgrade in velvet with a fun embroidered llama design.
3. GG MARMONT VELVE SHOULDER BAG | GUCCI
This gorgeous chevron velvet bag is a girl-on-the-go must. The sliding chain strap lets you change between wearing as a shoulder or a top handle bag. And, can you ever go wrong with a Gucci bag draped in velvet?
4. STATIC SOLUTION | THE LAUNDRESS
Velvet’s plush pile tends to build up static electricity, which is caused by friction and low humidity. Keep this spray handy to reduce pesky static cling at the next holiday party!
5. VELVET DRAPED SLEEVE TOP | TIBI
We love the draping on this ruffled velvet top with a key-hole back for its wardrobe versatility. It practically goes with everything!
TIP: While this item is made of rayon, be sure to check the care tag as velvet can also be made of wool, silk, and polyester!
6. MONARCH BARDOT VELVET WRAPPED CHOKER | FALLON
This embellished velvet choker is a true statement piece for adding drama to a casual ensemble or glamming up a dress on the holiday party circuit.
7. VELVET SKINNY JEANS | RAG & BONE
Skinny silhouettes aren’t just for jeans and these plush pants have just the right amount of stretch for a full day of wear.
8. BRIAR DOUBLE BREASTED JACKET | VERONICA BEARD
We’d venture to say a black velvet blazer is a wardrobe staple. Thrown over a basic tee with jeans or dressed up over your LBD, it’s the easiest way to incorporate velvet into your wardrobe.
TIP: Velvet does not usually require frequent washing. To keep your structured blazer fresh, learn how to spot treat the underarms here!
9. NO. 10 FABRIC FRESH | THE LAUNDRESS
Velvet is excellent at keeping us warm… sometimes too warm. Spray to freshen your velvet shoes and outfits, and never be caught with embarrassing odors at the next event! We love pairing this rich and sultry fragrance with equally sophisticated fabrics!
10. VELVET ANLKLE TIE PUMP | GIANVITO ROSSI
We can’t stop swooning over these velvet pumps with the ankle wrap detailing. They’re the perfect heel height for dancing the night away.
11. VELVET CORSET BELT | DEBORAH DRATTELL
We love this ultra-wide velvet corset belt – perfect for glamming up a basic dress or blouse. Lindsey will be adding velvet accessories like this belt for Christmas gatherings.
1. VELVET & LINEN TUFTED QUILT | RESTORATION HARDWARE
We dream of Saturdays surrounded by this plush cotton velvet quilt.
2. VALENTINA VELVET JEWELRY BOX | AERIN
We love the detailing on this jewelry box, including brass trim against the dusty rose velvet. Oh so feminine!
3. PEACOCK FEATHER TRIMMED PILLOW | AVIVA STANOFF
This emerald green velvet throw pillow with peacock feather trim can instantly dress up a room.
4. GOLDFINGER LOUNGE CHAIR | JONATHAN ADLER
This swanky velvet lounge chair is throwing out major 70s vibes and we can’t get enough.
5. SCALAMANDRE TIGER PILLOW COVER | WILLIAMS-SONOMA HOME
We are loving the rock n’ roll vibes of this tiger print velvet pillow. It’s a sure fire way to make a massive design statement in nearly any room.
6. VELVET BANQUETTE | TIGER LILY GREENWICH
Lindsey commissioned this custom upholstered green banquette to go around her dining table. While her piece was custom made, we found a similar version at Anthropologie.
7. VELVET DRAPES | RESTORATION HARDWARE
Velvet is excellent for sound absorption and temperature regulation, making it a luxe yet practical drapery fabric!
8. VELVET LAMPSHADE | ROCKETT ST. GEORGE
Velvet lampshades add an unexpected, rich texture to any space.
TIP: While home items inevitably collect dust, velvet reduces the appearance of dust as it absorbs into the pile. To remove lint, dust, and hair, periodically brush with the Clothing & Upholstery Brush!
