Right now, velvet is having a moment in the fashion spotlight. And with the holiday season upon us, what better time than now to embrace this lush, luxe trend? Velvet is beautiful and tactile, soft and luscious. This season, everything from bomber jackets to jeans, high heels to handbags comes in a velvet version.

Here are our picks for elevating your style for the holidays with this trend.

The Finds

Velvet Shoes

To me, velvet shoes are the epitome of indulgent. As you can guess, water and velvet just don’t mix well.  How extravagant is it to wear a pair of shoes only once before ruining them? This particular pair leaves your toes exposed to the elements and would be wrecked in the rain. But it’s not like you’ll wear them outside in inclement weather, anyway. I mean, really. Save them for changing into after you’re done the commute to your festivities. Besides, you must. This go-with-everything pinkish mushroom-y brown colour is the bomb.

Velvet Dresses

If you are on the hunt for a hot dress to fit the cold season, Rimpy Sahota. has got you covered. Her designs are sizzling, she is local and she’s one to watch. This champagne velvet wrap dress is divine. You will be a vision of loveliness, wearing this.If you are looking to stand out, Rimpy Sahota will certainly help you with that.

This incredible dress in plush silver would be like wrapping yourself in cool, laid-back elegance. So pretty for an evening office party. Wrap dresses tend to enhance all figures. And what could be better than wearing something akin to a fancy-pants bathrobe to a party?

Velvet Pants

These soft grey ankle pants will look kick-ass with some spikey high heels and a tuxedo jacket, maybe one in burgundy even. Or imagine them with a fluffy bunny-soft sweater, smoking slippers and a rhinestone necklace. This is a great way to do dressed-up pants for an event.

Velvet Clutch

How’s this for adding an element of festive luxe into the mix? This hand-sized clutch is like a ribbon-wrapped parcel (don’t let anyone mistake it for a present at the office gift exchange). The deep emerald colour is regal and the fabric is lavish. In particular, your skirt-and-blouse ensemble will be elevated with this on your arm.A green velvet bag with a chain strap.

Velvet Top

I am still partial to a peplum. Imagine this midnight blue little number with your tough-edged leather biker jacket slung over your shoulders, black reptile print skinny pants on the bottom. This might be just the right bit of elegance to give your rock-n-roll style some panache.
