100 Fabulous Velvet Designs

From Violet Velvet Attire to Velour-Studded Loafers

— January 10, 2013 — Fashion
Velvet attire is made from a thick fabric, which is traditionally associated with nobility. Thankfully, it has now crossed over into several different styles for both men and women, royal or otherwise.

The interestingly tactile cloth has always been around, but has made several revivals throughout the past century. For example, velvet was quite popular during the 60s and 70s when rock and roll and flower power dominated the culture, while the 90s saw a revival of crushed velvet apparel. Today, velvet is still a well-used fabric that is most notably seen in men's lines on smoking jackets and well-tailored pants. For women, velvet slip ons are particularly prominent in the fashion world for 2013.

For the New Year, velvet attire doesn't seem to be slowing down anytime soon and would be a great addition to any dressed-up night time look.
