Trending Now Velvet Dress-up! – Personal Cheat Sheet

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Fashion Lords from all over the world, including Marc Jacobs, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and Jimmy Choo, have endorsed the new Velvet allegiance trend for the Winter season. Our favourite fashion icons from Hollywood, Rita Ora, Kendall Jenner, Nicole Kidman, and Bollywood, Alia Bhatt, Priyanka Chopra, and Anushka Sharma, are all sprucing up their Velvet dresses to rule the catwalk and the streets!

Simar Glossy has a plethora of delectable looks that are sure to turn heads! So, here’s your personal cheat sheet for #TrendingNow Velvet Dress-up!

1- Street Fashion:

Being both cosy and sassy is essential for street style! You must embrace the trend of athletic wear. It might be helpful to put on this Off-Shoulder Dress in Plain Velvet or to walk the streets in a matching set of Velvet Jumpers and a Hooded Velvet Jacket, like Hollywood star Kim Kardashian does in this photo. As an alternative, a straightforward Oversized Velvet Hoodie with a noticeable brooch might do.


2- Sunday Brunch Fashion:

Sunday brunches revolve entirely around food and fashion. Allow Velvet to take care of your fashion forwardness with a simple Wrap-around Dress like the one seen here on Befikre actress Vaani Kapoor! For your Brunch outfit, you can make matching Velvet Separates, Tulip Skirts, Shoulder Capes, and more.

3- Casual/Holiday Clothing:

Going casual couldn’t be more convenient! Wear a loose Velvet Tee with denim Shorts and accessories with minimal jewellery to complete your look with high rise boots! Or take a cue from Harry Potter series actress Emma Watson and her trendy Maroon Velvet Shorts!


4- Ethnic Dress:

A little bit of simplicity can go a long way! Wear a Plain Velvet Long Hurta dress with high side slits over a pair of Banarasi Zari Trousers, or an Embroidered Velvet Dupatta, or sew a crafty Blouse to add a pop of colour to your ethnic ensembles! Better yet, copy Bollywood superstar Sridevi’s Black Velvet Saree!


5- Party Clothes:

What about a date? Dinner gatherings? What about family gatherings? Farmhouse gatherings? Dress in Velvet, the perfect fabric for a shutterbug like you! Take inspiration from Grammy-winning singer Rihanna’s Maroon Velvet Slip Dress (notice her Black Velvet Oversized Headband)! Alternatively, choose a plain or embroidered velvet evening gown with a flowing train or a thigh side-slit!


6- Wedding attire:

It’s a wedding, and you’re supposed to look royal! If you’re the Bride, an Embroidered Red Velvet Lehenga-skirt with minimalist designs, paired with a matching Zardozi Blouse and a crispy thin Plain Dupatta, could be the perfect showstopper. If you are attending this divine union, you can emulate Bollywood actress Bipasha Basu’s choice of a Navy Blue Velvet Saree with a Belt to highlight her waist!

7- Winter Clothes:

Looking for a fabric that is both warm and fashionable? The buck stops with Velvet, thanks to its easy adaptability into Coats, Blazers, Jackets, Sweaters, and Overcoats, which can also be styled with a patchwork! Or, take a cue from Victoria’s Secret Model Alessandra Ambrosio and her Embroidered Velvet Ralph Lauren Long Coat!


Velvet can be used to make Brooches, Embroidery Patches, Embroidered Borders, Laces, Stoles, Belts, or Caps, Head-bands, Hair-ties, Chokers, Bandanas, Potlis, Clutches, Wallets, Bags, and even warm-and-fuzzy Home Furnishings. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is seen below, putting her foot down on Velvet Allegiance in her Thigh-High Black Velvet Boots.
Now that you know that going Velvet is a must this season, put on your favourite Solids in colours like Royal Blue, Maroon, Magenta Pink, Christmas Tree-Green, Purple, or go for the best Embroidered Velvet with patterns like Colored Florals, Vines, Zari, Zardozi, whether done in Minimals or Elaborate designs!
